Qaidi Band Starring Anya Singh andamp Aadar Jain Takes Jailhouse Rock To A Not So Good Level
For the past couple of days, two people have been making headlines because of promotional posters released by Yash Raj Films. For those who couldn’t figure it out yet, we are talking about the newcomers Anya Singh and Aadar Jain, who are all set to floor us with their upcoming movie ‘Qaidi Band’. Aadar Jain is Ranbir Kapoor’s cousin andRaj Kapoor’s grandson. The movie’s much-awaited trailer was finally released today and in all honesty, the trailer gave away the whole gist of the film and did not intrigue us at all.

The trailer starts with a scene of jail inmates fighting and placing bets and doing all sorts of random things to make money. The plot then gradually shifts to the under-trials forming an orchestra band to perform on Independence Day. The under-trials soon put their hopes of freedom on music and start giving their best, but right when they are about to be released, something unexpected happens. While, at some places it looks like a combination of Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Rockstar’ and Farhan Akhtar’s ‘Rock On’, there is another movie that is based on similar lines. The movie is ‘Lucknow Central’ and talks about a jail inmate who forms his band inside the jail. It stars Farhan Akhtar, Diana Penty, Gippy Grewal, Ronit Roy and Deepak Dobriyal among others. Check out the trailer here.
The concept is interesting and different from what YRF usually delivers, but the trailer did not impress us at all. Further, the lead pair failed to stand out, although some of their dialogues were really amazing. It is written and directed by Habib Faisal and produced by Aditya Chopra. Whether this movie manages to leave an impact on the audience will be known on August 25, when it hits theatres.
