The much-anticipated trailer of Sadak 2 starring Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sanjay Dutt is finally out, marking filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt’s return to direction after almost two decades.
The trailer lives up to the buzz created by the countless behind-the-scene pictures, posters, and first looks of the film and is a sequel to the original 1991 romantic thriller Sadak, starring Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhatt in the lead roles. Sadak 2 takes over from there and chronicles how Ravi (Sanjay Dutt) fails to find meaning in life after the death of his beloved (Pooja Bhatt) until the mysterious Arya (Alia Bhatt) arrives at his doorsteps as a breath of fresh air.
The real journey of love, revenge and redemption ensues after the two along with Aditya Roy Kapur leave for a road journey to Kailash mountain. The twist in the tale arrives when a self-styled guru (played by Makarand Deshpande) plots to kill Arya.
Sadak 2 marks Mahesh Bhatt’s first collaboration with daughter Alia, amping up the excitement meter. The first instalment of Sadak, which was also helmed by Bhatt, was one of the highest-grossing Hindi films of 1991. Earlier on Monday, the film’s first look posters featuring Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sanjay Dutt were released, giving us an impression of how the characters have been built.
The newly launched trailer, clocking in at 3 minutes and two seconds, builds the three lead roles further and shows Alia to be a feisty young woman who is out to expose a fake guru running an ashram. Sanjay Dutt turns from resigned to fierce as the trailer progresses and Aditya Roy Kapur is seen at his relaxed best. Sadak 2 has all the elements of a romantic road thriller and from what we can gauge from the trailer, the music is set to add to the feel of the film.
Sadak 2 has been shot extensively in stunning locations across the country that includes Ooty, Mumbai, Mysore, and certain parts of Uttarakhand. It also stars a host of other stellar actors like Gulshan Grover, Jisshu Sengupta, Priyanka Bose, Mohan Kapur and Akshay Anand. Presented by Fox Stars Studios, Sadak 2 is under the banner of Vishesh Films Production and is directed by Mahesh Bhatt and produced by Mukesh Bhatt. The film is slated to release on online video streaming platform Disney+ Hotstar VIP on August 28.
