The trailer desperately tries to unfold the dark truth of the city, glimpses of which are evident from the trailer.
The makers are unabashedly trying to bring forth the dirty secrets of the pious city, out in the open and it seems they are unapologetic about the same.
Played by Sunny Deol, the film’s lead character is a guy who likes to use cuss words in his daily conversations. Sakshi Tanwar plays his so called innocent wife who doesn’t understand why foreigners are so much interested in Varanasi.
It also comes as a surprise when we get to see Sakshi Tanwar abusing in screen. Well, to me, it’s not a shocker, but it’s disgusting.
Throughout the trailer, all you get to see is sex, lusty men and people abusing each other. Is this cinema? Well, let’s not even get there.
Mohalla Assi is based on book Upanyas, a novel by noted Hindi writer Kashi Nath Singh and it focuses on the life of a middle class family that earns its bread and butter by organising religious rituals.
The trailer, which is not available on YouTube, is apparently the leaked version and not an official one.
According to the reports when asked about trailer leak, Director Chandraprakash Dwivedi said “No comments for now. I suggest you wait for a few days to know the truth.”
Mohalla Assi stars Sunny Deol, Sakshi Tanwar, Ravi Kishan, Saurabh Shukla, Mukesh Tiwari, Rajendra Gupta, Mithilesh Chaturvedi and Seema Azmi in key roles.
All in all, there is nothing new or fresh that one saw. The film has been in the cans for a while now and we do hope that it will see the light of the day this year.
There has been no official announcement about the release date of the film yet.
