Okay, first of all, I wanted a different title for this post, but I thought not many people would relate to it and click on it. Now that you’re already there, here is the title of this article originally: “I’ve watched every Salman Khan trailer since I wanted to and the main difference I noticed was the quality of the streaming ( from 480P to 1440P). ” The Radhe trailer is finally here and 45 seconds later to find out how Salman Khan’s cop is not a “ normal ” policeman but a “ specialist ”. As the trailer progresses, it gives you a flashback to a lot of things you’ve seen before. It got me coming back to watch every one of his trailers from Wanted, and OH MY GOD, I cracked a formula.
So if you put together a Salman Khan movie trailer, I think there is a formula made up of three milestones that you will get with a particular set of instructions. First of all, you will have to introduce a problem. No problem. Big, small, family, countryside, village, vintage. Then you will need to introduce a problem solver i.e.Bhai.
Now, to set the tone, you will need to give some “mujh par ek ehsaan karna”, “dil main aata hoon, samajh mein nahi”, “ek baar jo main engagement kar di” and “dil kholke nahi, Dell kholke dekho” ( okay, not the last) of the adrenaline pumping lines to the film’s lead role ie Bhai. This will create a kind of “Bhai toh Bhai hai” aura around her character, which will lead to “where is bhabhi?”
After recording the character of Bhai (as Radhe), Bhai moves on to Bhabhi, who most (or I guess all) of the time aren’t impressed with his style (or existence) at first, but the trailer immediately launch a dance floor in between. . Bhai, set of Bhabhi. And after?
Where is the creator of the problem that you introduced before the Bhai-Bhabhi trail? Bring the bad guy! No villain has ever had a chance against Salman Khan. The manufacturers even tried to bring Pakistan in, but Bhai won. Forget Pakistan, the makers tried to plant a mountain against Bhai, and he shook it without putting a hand. Bhai 1 – Mountain 0.
At this point, you’re already 75% of the trailer. Now design a quick cut featuring dance footage, lots of action sequences laced with the album’s signature song. And now you will be an expert on how to complete the trailer. Yes. With another seeti-maar dialog (the Eid plug-in will be preferable). Here is! Here you have the trailer for a movie that will go to the box office and earn a minimum of 100 crore.
Even so, if you see the Ek Tha Tiger (2012) and Jai Ho (2013) trailer back to back, you’ll understand what I’m trying to make here. Yes, I understand that it is also a question of budget, but the difference is much wider than the lush pitches. Another example is the comparison of the Sultan (2016) and Tiger Zinda Hai (2017) trailer with Race 3 (2018). That says a lot about how the filmmakers came up with a formula for creativity that should finally come to an end.
Now to wrap this up, I was never a hater of Salman Khan, and I really enjoyed most of his movies even before Wanted. I am not against any artist; I am against restricted creativity in promoting the art of this artist. Salman fans adore him like a star, and they deserve a lot better than that. I know many will disagree with this and blame me in the comments, and it’s totally their choice, but if you enjoyed reading this post, then share it with three of your friends and have too much fun.
