Aurangzeb Movie Stills....

After the blockbuster success of their last major outing, JAB TAK HAI JAAN, India's premier production house, Yash Raj Films' next offering is a high octane action drama AURANGZEB that sees Arjun Kapoor back on the big screen after a successful debut (courtesy YRF!), ISHAQZAADE. The film also marks the debut of Sasha Agha, daughter of popular actress-singer, Salma Agha, and boasts of an ensemble cast comprising of the likes of Rishi Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, south super star Prithviraj and Swara Bhaskar. 


Keeping the dark, serious and tense dramatic subject of the film in mind, music is composed by two young and relatively fresh talents, Amartya Rahut and Vipin Sharma, both of whom are highly rated as passionate composers.

The number already making a mark and striking a positive chord with the Gen X is 'Barbaadiyaan', a lively club dance track that has a lively rhythm and superb arrangements. Rendered superbly by Sasha Agha (a worthy successor to her mother's singing legacy), who also features in the dance track along with Arjun Kapoor. Giving a good support is Ram Sampath. Puneet Sharma's lyrics are certainly a departure from the usual dance numbers. 

Another sad situational 'sufi' outing, 'Jigra Fakira', is composed by Vipin Sharma. The classy Hindustani arrangements add to the old world charm but at times the all Punjabi lyrics are a bit too difficult to comprehend. 

The title track, 'Aurangzeb', composed-penned by Vipin Sharma is a slow paced, situational theme piece that successfully imitates the painful mental condition of the lead protagonist- tired and broken down after a bloody battle. The chorus led by Marianne D'Cruz, Aiman is the USP of the track. 

The audio of AURANGZEB is indeed an expert’s pick with classy music, and the addition of so many instrumentals adds to the class of the album and our favorites are 'Barbaadiyaan' and 'Jigra Fakira'. What must be mentioned here is that the album is not mass appealing, and that is the only drawback here as most of Yash Raj Films' music has always been stand by both mass and class.


A family of Policemen...A family of Gangsters... 

Under the guise of a respected citizen, Yashwardhan (Jackie Shroff) runs a parallel world - a world, where he is the Emperor. 

To bring down a criminal... the law will have to now think like a criminal! 
When Vishal (ArjunKapoor) is planted in Yashwardhan's world in place of Ajay (ArjunKapoor), the lawmakers (Rishi Kapoor & Prithviraj) roll the dice and a sequence of events unravel - something much more than what Vishal bargained for, as he finds himself in a predicament that puts him to the test! 

AURANGZEB is all about a world where Kingship knows no Kinship and where there can be only one Emperor! 

Yash Raj Films’ this newest endeavor arenas the police family against the gangster family, but plants a twist in it. Rishi Kapoor, who has never put on the cop uniform in his 33-year career, will be seen in the police avatar for the first time in Yash Raj Films’ Aurangzeb. And to confront him there is the head of the gangster family Jackie Shroff, who has a crime network under the hood of a real estate empire. In this cop family opposed to gangster family tale, Rishi, Prithviraj and Sikandar Kher will seen challenging Jackie, his wife Amrita Singh and son Arjun Kapoor.

The turn comes when Rishi plants Arjun’s double into the gangster family to uncover their criminal underground. Arjun is Aurangzeb – the king who gives importance his throne above relationship. As of now it seems, the movie has great possibility to be a new-age suspense drama, and we hope director Atul Sabharwal doesn’t disappoint. It’s Arjun’s second film and we are really looking forward to see if he has the staying power!

Moreover it will be exciting to watch Rishi Kapoor in a new avatar. He is one actor who has been doing a great variety of roles in the last few years – more than he ever did when he was at the peak of his fame.

The film is scheduled to release on 17 May, 2013.
