Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee starrer, Aiyaary‘s trailer is out and what may appear a patriotic film releasing on January 26, 2018, is just another action-packed espionage film.

Neeraj Pandey’s film deals with corruption, espionage and patriotism, all of which sound familiar when it comes to Pandey’s films. Be it Wednesday or his latest Naam Shabana, Pandey has somewhat an obsession with the genre that he just can’t try to make something new!

While the film’s trailer is promising with fine performances from Manoj Bajpayee, Nasseruddin Shah and Kumud Mishra, some to the edge of seat action sequences and Sidharth Malhotra’s attempt to deliver what can be called as his best performance till date. The film’s plot can be predictable just from the looks of the trailer!

The film showcases on a mentor and mentee, two army officers, who differ in their way of approach after some turn of events. While it’s pretty much evident that Sidharth’s character will go rogue in the film as per the storyline, Bajpayee’s role will somewhat be a father-figure, who bounded by duty has to bring down Sidharth at any cost, and then it’s all about the cat-mouse chase that will build most of the plot in the film.

Given the fact that the film is releasing on the Republic Day, the film will also focus on some elements of patriotism or maybe entirely the film will be all about patriotism.

While the film’s trailer has some high points and low points, the film will surely be one of the coolest espionage thrillers of 2018 with a fresh cast and Pandey’s creativity to deliver a masterpiece. But seriously, the director should step out of his spy universe for once and make something like MS Dhoni: The Untold Story.

Well, that being said, the film will release alongside Akshay Kumar’s Padman on the same date, what can be called as the first big clash of 2018. While the trailer has got all eyeballs on it in just half-an-hour, the fate of the film at the box office remains unknown.

Directed by Neeraj Pandey, Aiyaary will release worldwide on January 26, 2018.
