Citylights trailer: Rajkummar Rao, Hansal Mehta and Mahesh Bhatt come up with a hard hitting film!

After Shahid, the actor-director duo are once again back to knock the doors of the National Film awards…

Rajkummar Rao is all set to team up with Hansal Mehta again for another hard hitting film, and this time even Mahesh Bhatt has joined the party for Citylights. The film is said to be a remake of the international film, Metro Manila, and by the looks of it, this film too seems to be equally good. If we recall, Rajkummar and Hansal won the National Film award for their last release together, Shahid, which was widely appreciated by critics and fans alike.

The trailer shows a small town man entangled in the cobweb of debts and responsibilities and therefore decided to move over to a big city to earn good bucks, but his life gets even more entangled. It shows that in order to survive and in dire consequences, sometimes people end up following the route of crime and prostitution. The promo shows good potential to again be a strong contender for the National Film award in various categories.

The film marks the debut of Patralekha, who plays the character of the wife opposite Rajkummar. The film releases on May 30, 2014 and promises to repeat the success of Shahid, by being equally hard hitting and true to present day scenario. We can’t wait to watch this one. What about you BollywoodLifers? Watch the trailer and let us know your thoughts.
