The trailer of this film is very interesting in terms of story as it is inspired by the real life incident,1959 case of KM Nanavati that changed the face of the Indian judicial system. The trailer of the movie, produced by Neeraj Pandey and directed by Tinu Suresh Desai, has already created much curiosity among cinema lovers. The movie will hit the screens on August 12.


As shown in the trailer, the story revolves around the three gunshots; by Rustom (Akshay Kumar). Here Akshay is a commander in navy who is peacefully dedicated to his work and along with that, he is a good loving husband but when he finds about his wife’s (Ilena D’cruz) affair, he shoots her lover Vikram (Arjan Bajwa). He becomes a topic of debate among the media along with people discussing and questioning about his patriotism which makes the film a very interesting thriller. The question that is he a traitor, murder or a patriot, that the promo leaves us with, has lead to immense curiousity.


Akshay Kumar and Neeraj Pandey as a team have given us films like ‘Special 26’ and ‘Baby’ in the past. Though, Neeraj has just produced ‘Rustom’, not directed it, one has high expectations from the film because the two of them have teamed up again.


Akshay Kumar is currently dominating the industry with backto-back hits, even this year in terms of ‘Airlift’ and ‘Housefull 3’. While he has paved new trend with films like ‘Special 26’, ‘Baby’ and ‘Airlift’ that have been hits, the industry and the audience has high expectations from him. It’s like, the man can do no wrong. His choices have been superlative, and he seems to now be pleasing both – the masses and classes. ‘Rustom’ just seems to be yet another step in that direction.


The music for ‘Rustom’ is composed by Arko Pravo Mukherjee, Raghav Sachar, Ankit Tiwari, and Jeet Gannguli. The lyrics are penned by Manoj Muntashir. The first song from the album, “Tere Sang Yaara”, sung by Atif Aslam is a melodious track and composed by Arko Pravo Mukherjee. It has already struck a chord with the audience. The second track of the movie, titled “Rustom Vahi” is sung by Sukriti Kakar. All lyrics are penned by Manoj Muntashir and the entire album sounds great.


Currently one sees that there is a trend of films based on real incidents, or real cinema doing well. Since ‘Rustom’ is also inspired by true events, the film has immense curiousity among the audience. And especially since Kumar’s ‘Airlift’, another real-life incident based film did well, the audience is looking forward to this one as well.
