On the release day of Sushant Singh Rajput’s film ‘Kedarnath’ with Sara Ali Khan, makers of ‘Sonchiriya’ have come out with the much-awaited teaser. 

The first teaser-trailer is over one-minute-long and will remind you of an era forgotten -- when the dacoits terrorised entire Indian villages and ran their own gangs, much before the mafias and dons took over.

Set in the 1970s, the film pitches Manoj Bajpayee and Sushant Singh Rajput as dacoits of Chambal valley, a much-dreaded place in India for loot and crime. Ranveer Shorey is another dacoit in the picture along with actress Bhumi Pednekar who has a meaty role too (we hope). 

‘Sonchiriya’ revolves around dacoits of Chambal valley. A second poster released of the film that focuses on the dry, mountainous terrains of Chambal, unlike the first poster that showed a group of men armed for combat. 


Directed by Abhishek Chaubey, who has helmed films like ‘Udta Punjab’, ‘Dedh Ishqiya’ and ‘Ishqiya’, is presented by Ronnie Screwvala's RSVP movies.

‘Sonchiriya’ will release on 8 February 2019.
