Could Randeep Hooda and Aishwarya Rai’s Sarbjit, the biopic of an Indian farmer sentenced to death in Pakistan on charges of terrorism and spying, prove to be the best Bollywood film of 2016? If the film’s trailer, released on Thursday, is any measure, this Omung Kumar-directed biopic is sure to raise the bar a few notches.

Starring Hooda in the lead and Aishwarya playing his sister Dalbir Kaur, the trailer focusses on the plight of Sarbjit’s family, especially his sister. It also showcases the life inside Pakistani jails and how inmates are treated there. Hooda is in his elements and looks every bit the character he is playing. He has lost weight and the cynical attitude that seeps in after spending many years in a claustrophobic space is quite visible on his face.

Aishwarya too looks stunning in her de-glammed avatar. She has been shown fighting for justice in Delhi and other places.

Though Kumar, who earlier directed Mary Kom, preferred a dramatic trailer, he still manages to give the feeling of a biopic. It’s clear that the spotlight will be on Aishwarya, but Randeep Hooda is difficult to ignore.

Sarbjit will hit the screens on May 20, 2016.
