Kidnap is special... Everyone's looking forward to Sanjay Dutt's first major release this year. Everyone's looking forward to teen sensation and the heart-throb of millions, Imran Khan's next release after the blockbuster hit Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na. Everyone's looking forward to Sanjay Gadhvi's immediate release after the pulse-pounding blockbuster Dhoom 2.
Last but not the least, everyone's looking forward to Ashtavinayak's next biggie, after a string of hits. Quality is the middle name of this production house and success has become a habit for the Mehtas and their team at Ashtavinayak. Naturally, then, the expectations from Kidnap are gargantuan.
This writer had the exclusive privilege of watching the first promo of Kidnap, which will hit the screens with the prints of Singh Is Kinng this Friday. This is one of those rare promos that make you thirst for more. You want to watch it again and again and again...
The trailer packs in a lot of stuff in those 2/3 minutes. It has the edge of the seat feel, beautiful locations, rapid action, hot actors and most importantly, the confrontation between a boy and a man. Watch Imran fearlessly take on Sanju head on, after he has kidnapped his daughter, Minissha Lamba.
Imran challenges Sanju, 'Everything you do - eating, sleeping, walking, talking - will be decided by me.' To which Sanju retorts, 'Go to hell.' From there the promo takes you on an action-packed thrill ride with Sanju searching for his daughter relentlessly and Imran telling him, 'Hell is already here.'
Imran Khan looks dashing in the new avatar (watch the tattoo on his neck). The role is a complete contrast from his debut film. The menacing presence on screen is to be marvelled at. He looks amazing in this role of a boy taking on a man. Sanju, on the other hand, looks dapper in classy suits, while Minissha looks stunning.
The question is, who will win in this battle between boy versus man? Kidnap releases worldwide on October 2 by Indian Film Company/Studio 18.
