Makrand Deshpande’s movie based on a unique concept of sleep looks quite appealing
The multi-talented Makrand Deshpande is back with yet another venture Sona Spa – based on a Hindi play of the same name – written and directed by Makrand himself. While almost the entire cast of the play has been repeated in the film, Naseeruddin Shah’s character of ‘sleep god’ has been specially designed.
The trailer begins with the title track Sona spa mein aayega toh bachche sa so jayega and the movie’s theme deals with selling sleep! The futuristic film shows a different world where workaholic individuals, too busy to sleep, can hire sleep-workers at the spa run by Naseeruddin. The catch here is that the sleep-workers can also see the person’s dreams on whose behalf they are sleeping. Naseer says Sona Spa in slow motion in his inimitable style which instantly reminds us of his popular lines – Paap se phati dharti from the yesteryear musical blockbuster Tridev. Directed by Makrand and starring the versatile Naseer, Sona Spa looks quite capable of hitting the bull’s eye. Have a look at the trailer and tell us if you agree.
