The trailer of Vik’s Buro Sadhu features Ritwick Chakraborty in the lead. Buro Sadhu is Chakraborty’s eighth release this year and also stars veteran actor Chiranjeet Chakraborty and Ishaa Saha in important roles.
The trailer begins with Chakraborty’s monologue as he comments on his twisting state of mind and unusual perspectives of life. He also speaks of a hopeless circumstance and knows that there is someone who can turn the situation upside down. The trailer offers glimpses of series of events in Chakraborty’s life that as led him into such turbulent thoughts.
In a flashback, it is revealed that Chakraborty is not at all ambitious and doesn’t consider earning means to be essential. His moments of spending blissful times with his love interest, a girl in school uniform, is followed by a sequence in which the girl can be seen accusing him of not being serious about their relationship. At the same time, other people also start calling him to be a mental patient, while his fiancée, played by Ishaa Saha, waits for their marriage.
The more people start expecting from him, the more he gets cornered with blames and accuses. Amidst the series of failures, he starts delving into his psychological states and hallucinations. He contemplates that he has an alter-ego and sometimes, he cannot distinguish between the two.
Needless to say, the journey of Chakraborty’s character is the central theme of the film. While on one hand, he starts to realise that he is crossing the border of sanity, on the other, he remains completely towards the demands of society and people at large.
At the end of trailer, however, the apparently good-for-nothing character appears to be receiving some kinds of accolades and in that new direction, Chiranjeet’s character seems to play a crucial role.
Coming to the beginning of the trailer, whether Chakraborty refers to his alter ego or Chiranjeet’s character, having the potential to change the direction of his life, remains confusing and that is where perhaps the twist of the film lies too.
From the trailer, the film seems to have been shot quite cinematically. On the other music seems to lack originality. Chakraborty has undoubtedly opted for an unusual character for him; however, his style of narration seems to be same as in various other films.
Buro Sadhu is due to be released on 25 October. Watch the trailer below and let us know if you are keen to watch the film.
