‘Irada’ trailer: Arshad & Naseeruddin-starrer is a dark thriller

After enthralling audience with superb performances in ‘Ishqiya’ and ‘Dedh Ishqiya’, Arshad Warsi and Naseeruddin Shah have reunited for ‘Irada’, the trailer of which was released on Tuesday, January 24. Directed by debutante Aparnaa Singh, the movie also stars Divya Dutta, Sharad Kelkar, Sagarika Ghatge and Rajesh Sharma in important roles.   

Arshad shared the link of the trailer on his Twitter handle by writing, “#Irada accha hai aur sachha hai! #IradaTrailer is here-17th Feb '17.”

‘Irada’ is a suspense thriller and the trailer is quite intriguing. The little-over-two-minute-long trailer opens with Naseer’s voice speaking a verse hinting of revenge and a scene of blast in a factory. Arshad plays an NIA officer who is summoned by the chief minister, played by Divya Dutta, who orders him to close the case. “Without a noise of voice mail, put it in spam,” she instructs Arshad’s character.

Arshad plays a serious role, but brings his quintessential comic touch with his dialogues. Naseer plays a retired army officer seeking revenge for his daughter. He is seen saying a lot of things through his verses, as Arshad puts it. Sagarika of ‘Chak De! India’ fame plays a journalist who is also investigating the bomb blast, while Sharad plays a ruthless businessman, who doesn’t care for common people’s wellbeing.   

‘Truth lies beneath the surface,’ the trailer says. ‘Irada’ has been bankrolled by  Falguni Patel and Prince Soni, and is slated to hit screens on February 17.
