Trust Abbas Mustan to go back to one of their iconic movies as an inspiration to Abbas' son
Mustafa's debut movie, Machine. This time their source of inspiration seems to be the very iconic Baazigar. The same that gave Shah Rukh Khan his superstardom as well as his first Filmfare Award for the Best Actor. The same Baazigar Baazigar that has Shah Rukh Khan pushing off Shilpa Shetty's character to her death even before the movie reaches interval. The same Baazigar that has the immensely popular Yeh Kaali Kaali Aankhen (a potential candidate for another recreation a la Humma Humma and Tamma Tamma Loge). The same Baazigar... okay, you got the point right?
Well, the trailer for
has just landed, and it nearly succeeds in portraying the latest star kid on the block, Mustafa Burmawalla, as this all rounder talent, who can dance, flirt, sing romantic songs, drive on the fast lane with ease and have no regards for traffic rules. As his character proudly says to Machine Kiara Advani's, ' Main brake par paon nahi rakhta...kyunki mujhe maut se darr nahi lagta!' Supposedly cool line, but shows his total disregard to the safety of other passengers. Anyway, there are a couple of ho-hum songs (one of which riffs off Padosan's Ek Chatur Naar) that show the romance between Mustafa and Kiara Advani (Looking very pretty, but not getting much scope apart from being a eye candy, atleast in the trailer). Then things start getting a bit interesting, when we see Dalip Tahil, and has Mustafa try to push him off a building (in a later scene, he seems to have done the deed). From this moment, things began to go Baazigar way... an anti-hero, Dalip Tahil, car racing (something that was an important part in Baazigar), a second heroine, and pushing someone off the building....
Watch the trailer here...
So how did you find the trailer of
Machine? Did it also remind you of Baazigar?
