Our Opening Day Prediction

‘Sonchiriya’ is what Bharat was called years back. It was called Golden Bird which means ‘Sone Ki Chiriya.’  This movie is a story of rebels written in dust, with their blood. It’s based on the 1975 conflict that took place at Chambal, India. With the kind of response the trailer has got, we believe the film will strike a chord amongst a certain niche section of the audience. Here’s why we think the film will strike a chord and can further do better through positive word of mouth.


The trailer of ‘Sonchiriya’ revolves around Chambal valley, the land known for its allegiance to the dacoits and the police asking the gangs to surrender in order to clean the Chambal valley and have no Dacoits left in Chambal as it is a place that belongs to the government and even the dacoits want to capture it and rule on it. Being a movie that includes Dacoits and their Land there is a lot of gun firing and bombing all over the seen, it attracts a certain kind of audience who is a fan of this kind of cinema.


Sushant Singh Rajput is in a never seen avatar. He is playing the role of the rebel who goes against his gang to fight for his cause. Bhumi is seen as a powerful woman who is on the run with a little girl. Before they take her in, the dacoits ask her caste. We see her beat up a man but ultimately gets captured by another, played by Jatin Sarna of Sacred Games. Ashutosh Rana plays a brutal policeman, put in charge of bringing order to the dacoit situation in Chambal. Oh, then there’s the one and only Manoj Bajpayee in the film. The film has a stellar ensemble cast of actors who’re known for their brilliant acting prowess.


There are fans of this kind of genre, and films which have been given this raw, real kind of treatment connected to the roots. We’ve seen films in the similar space like ‘Gangs Of Wasseypur’ amidst many more. Also, guns, fights, bad words, dacoits, action – all this brings in immense attraction. The fact that Abhishek Chaubey is directing it – he’s known and appreciated for his earlier work, right from ‘Ishqiya’ to ‘Udta Punjab’ is one of the  biggest USPs of the film. He’s also known to be an expert for handling such stories and narratives.
