5 Thoughts I Had While Watching The Trailer For Sooryavanshi. One Of Them Definitely Was Where is Katrina Kaif?
Here’s presenting the next crappy Bollywood release- Sooryavanshi. I have to say, I had a few expectations from this one but from what I can see, it’s just another Rohit Shetty movie, so now I have no expectations. All his movies are so similar he should have his own genre. Wait, actually he does. Three police”men” are fighting terrorists and making cars fly with their stellar action skills. I am not kidding I have seen more cars fly in this trailer than I have Katrina Kaif who is basically the wifey side kick. They’ve just stuffed so much into this one trailer it feels like you are watching the whole movie and it sucks. Here are my two cents on this trailer, have fun!
PS: Don’t blink while you are watching it or you will skip Katrina all together.
- Okay, why did I just watch crappy three trailers in one? It really feels Rohit Shetty has mindlessly mixed Singham (obviously), Rowdy Rathore and Simbaa. For the fourth instalment of his cop drama, he just decided it would be easier to create a mash up because why create original characters? Frankly, it looked too damn cluttered. This trailer is a melting pot of all Bollywood movies with sappy emo drama, action that defies the laws of physics and the slap-stick comedy that Rohit Shetty is so well known for. Being a Bollywood buff, I should’ve loved it, but I was laughing at how stupid all of it is throughout. Originality in Bollywood really seems like it has left the building for good but when it comes to Rohit Shetty, I am starting to think he never had much of it anyway.

- Can someone tell me what the hell Katrina was made to do in that trailer? Why was the leading woman, the only woman amongst three men, made to look like a gharelu sidekick? This is the third action movie trailer in a row that has the woman acting like she is too fragile to actually take part in the action. Is it that tough for our audience to accept a woman in mainstream cinema actually contributing to the plot of an action movie?
- In four and half minutes, the most Katrina has done is slap Akshay Kumar, romanced him on the bike (which seems not only ridiculous but also highly unlikely, but then again who needs to look ahead while operating a bike?) and held his hand while walking behind him as the three men do their power walk with guns blazing. I don’t think it would’ve made a fuck of a difference if she wasn’t in the trailer at all and that makes my blood boil. So, being as vela as I am, I did a little math. Katrina features in this trailer for all of 20 seconds out of four and a half minutes. It isn’t important to show the woman at all, is it? What role does she have? I have seen more cars flying around in this trailer than Katrina.

- We all know how much Rohit Shetty loves bikes, cars and helicopters but this time it feels like he has tried to cram every single action sequence he knows into four and a half minutes. No seriously, what was that sequence where Akshay climbs onto a helicopter directly from his bike and then he clings on to it like he is George of the Jungle. Or when someone fires a huge ass missile looking bullet at Ajay Devgn and he literally moves less an half an inch to dodge it and when it hits the car right behind him not only is he not hurt but he doesn’t even flinch, which only brings me to one conclusion- he is wolverine. Also, what is Ranveer Singh’s entry? How is not hurt after the car he is sitting on burst through a wall? That kind of invincible power would be fun to have, no? Please note: Katrina has no action sequences for us to laugh at. But that is no surprise since there is no way she would’ve been able to do everything these three men have done, right? *rolls eyes*
- This is the same maar-dhaad-masala nonsense that has plagued Bollywood for ages now. I know we hate change, but seriously it feels like Rohit Shetty has been making the same movie over and over again. Maybe that is all he knows or maybe he had one original thought sometime in his life and it died of loneliness.
