On the occasion of Gandhi Jayanthi on Sunday, the makers of Gandhi Talks released the film's teaser. The teaser, which is filled with various glimpses of the the Indian rupee note with Mahatma Gandhi's portrait, has no dialogues. Accompanied by AR Rahman's music, Gandhi Talks is touted to be a dark comedy.
The 80-second teaser introduces us the four main characters played by Vijay Sethupathi, Arvind Swami, Aditi Rao Hydari, and Marathi actor Siddharth Jadhav. With Rahman's version of the bhajan 'Raghupati Raghava Raja Ram' playing in the background, we see them using different rupee notes for different purposes.
You can watch the teaser here:
While Jadhav sticks all the notes on his face, Hydari carries the money with her while getting ready. Swami generously offers a 2000 rupee note to a beggar only to see a group of beggars fight over that. Vijay Sethupathi rolls a few notes and uses them as a battery to run a toy, symbolic of how money can make things work.
Each of these characters also has a monkey toy with them. The makers are reportedly eyeing an early 2023 release.
Gandhi Talks is directed by Kishor P Belekar of Hajari (2020) fame. The AR Rahman musical is produced by Zee Studios, Kyoorius Digital Pvt. Ltd. & Movie Mill Entertainment. While Karan Rawat will be handling the cinematography, Ashish Mhatre will be editing the film.
