Teaser of the movie “Baazi”
Releasing a movie on Eid has became a ritual for super star Jeet, this year it was supposed to be his new movie Baazi. The whole team of Baazi had started shooting in London for the film to be on schedule but all the plans got delayed because of COVID19 pandemic. Finally the team has completed its shooting recently and currently the film is in post production stage. Production house Jeetz Filmworks are planning to release the film soon most probably during this winter. In this film, actress Mimi Chakraborty will be seen playing the leading lady opposite Jeet, for the first time. Apart from the lead pair the film will also feature Sabysachi Chakraborty and Bishwanath Basu in important characters. The film has been directed by Anshuman Pratyush who had made his directorial debut last year with Jeet and Shraddha Das starer Panther. His last film as a director was Puja release SOS Kolkata.
Baazi is an official remake of 2016’s Telugu film Nannaku Prematho featuring NTR Jr. Three screenplay writers Arnab, Bibhas and Anubhab has worked on the adapted screenplay. Recently the teaser of the film has been released. The teaser mostly focuses on the romantic track between Jeet and Mimi. It gives a brief hint of the drama between a father and son which was the main core of the story in the original Telugu film. The teaser shows high quality production values. DOP Ramyadeep Saha’s frames are looking visually rich. Although it is too early to comment about the film by watching a one minute long teaser but one can easily say that the whole treatment of the film is looking dated and repetitive. We have seen Jeet in similar scenes in several movies earlier and that is definitely not a good sign specially considering the bad fate of south remakes in recent past. In such a situation if Jeet will be able to bring back the crowd with his star power or not, only time will tell that.
