Aurangzeb like the title suggests is not a historical film but a modern day crime film.
Produced by Yash Raj Films, the film is written / directed by Atul Sabharwal who had earlier penned such films like My Wife’s Murder, Phir Milenge and Darna Mana Hai.
While the trailer is a reminiscent of the crime films of the 80s of gangster families versus upright policemen with double roles put it, the film is set in today’s times and the actors seem to do justice to their respective roles. It gives the impression of a crime drama and is hard hitting from frame one as one expects from a crime film.
And as the film’s catch line goes, “To bring down a criminal, the law will have to think like a criminal.”
The film is slated to hit the screens on 17th May 2013.
