If you thought the heroes in our films have learnt to play their age, Telugu director Sriwas’ forthcoming film Dictator will make your optimism take a nosedive. The under one-minute trailer of this Eros Now film, released on Friday, shows veteran actor Nandamuri Balakrishna, the sixth son of NT Rama Rao, playing a role which actors almost 10 years his junior have been acing with consummate ease for years now.
The teaser shows a rather chubby Balakrishna showing off his street-smart desi avatar, before transforming into his suave self in foreign shores. And before we recover from all this, we see our man romancing a girl, followed by out-of-place action sequences, beating up baddies.
Watch the teaser here:
Eros Now has also shared a brief summary of the plot. Dictator looks like a sad mishmash of all things that sell: A comedy-meets-action-drama which is not going anywhere.
The film also stars Sonal Chauhan and Anjali. Its music is by SS Thaman. Dictator is set for a late October release.
