Newton Trailer: This Dark Comedy on Indian Politics Can’t Be Any More Indian
Aug 29, 2017
When you hear the title Newton, you assume the film is going to be about Sir Isaac Newton’s laws but when you watch the trailer of this Rajkummar Rao film, you will be surprised about how a man has made his life based on a simple rule, “If you don’t change nothing, nothing will change.” Rajkummar Rao as Newton is a man of principles who does not bend to the situations and only follows what is right, not just according to him but also according to the law of this country.
While the trailer explains that Rao`s character wantonly changed his name from Nutan Kumar to Newton in order to escape embarrassment, it is only much later that he realises the larger implications of his name. The trailer starts on a refreshingly real note, with a comic touch, when Rao encounters a suitor. His reaction to the suitor`s confession of being under-aged establishes him as a morally upright human.
The two and a half minute trailer sees the story unfold layer by layer starting with the scene where Newton and his family comes to see his prospective bride. With this story shot in the jungles of Chhattisgarh in central India, `Newton` couldn`t be more Indian in its taste for movie aficionados at a gala as prestigious as the 67th Berlin International Film Festival, says the film`s lead actor Rajkummar Rao. The film is scheduled to release on September 22, 2017.
