2018 Wrap Up: The most impressive trailers that came out this year
2018 will be considered as the most experimental year in Indian cinema as apart from done-to death masala films, we also saw a number of fresh and unique ideas brought on the table by some of the terrific directors (few debutantes too) of our film industry. Though the year may not have been a good one for the quintessential Khans of Bollywood, it was really great for small budget films which were driven by content.
This year, we saw some small films making the biggest impact on the box office all thanks to the content that they offered. They say that the success of a film depends partially on the response its trailer is able to invoke amongst the audience. How you cut and present your trailer is a very important factor these days.
Here we bring you a list of the most impressive trailers that we came across this year.
‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’
Now though this Anil Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao starrer is all set to release next year, its trailer was unveiled just a few days back. Breaking several stereotypes, the film is about an unexpected love story of two females. Yes, Sonam Kapoor will be playing a lesbian in this film. But look how beautifully and subtly the trailer reveals the film’s unique plot.
Personally for me, this one is hands-down the best trailer that we saw this year. Ayushmann’s reaction when he finds out that his third sibling is on the way is epic. The trailer creates a lot of intrigue and excitement. Eventually, upon its release, the film went on to become a huge success.
This year has been the year of the power-house performer, Ayushmann Khurrana. He gave two back-to-back hits with ‘AndhaDhun’ and ‘Badhaai Ho’. Just like ‘Badhaai Ho’, the trailer of ‘AndhaDhun’ too was extremely catchy. It generated enough curiosity for the audience to go and watch the film in theatres. Without a doubt, ‘AndhaDhun’ is one of the best films that released this year.
Vishal Bharadwaj treated the audience with a hilarious story of two sisters who just can’t live with or without each other. The trailer was so entertaining that I ended up watching it several times. Through these two sisters, the director tried to draw an analogy between the two warring countries – India and Pakistan. How clever this idea was!
‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’
Now, of course, ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’ is one of the most enjoyable films of this year. Kartik was back in his elements and the trailer was so entertaining that it instantly made the audience eager to watch the film.
Alia Bhatt once again showed her terrific acting prowess in this Meghna Gulzar directorial. For the first time, we saw a story that was so gripping that it was hard to believe that the film is based on a true story. Hats off to the writer and director of this film. Thank You for giving us a gem of a film.
In Bollywood, very rarely we get to see a horror comedy film. Rajkummar Rao’s and Shraddha Kapoor starrer ‘Stree’ is also one of the super hit films of this year. The film’s trailer was very captivating and Rajkummar’s dialogue and expressions were like an icing on the cake. Obviously, the viewers were glued to the idea of the film which resulted in it doing a great business at the box office.
Rajkumar Hirani is one of the best directors we have in Bollywood. The filmmaker has a very unique story-telling style that never fails to entertain the audience apart from delivering a social message in a very apt way. There’s no denying that the trailer of this Ranbir Kapoor starrer was one of the best ones that was unveiled this year.
If you are a parent or have young siblings or even niece and nephews, then after watching the trailer of this film, we bet you would be disturbed for some time. ‘Pihu’s trailer was really very arresting.
