It is intense, dramatic, historic and bold - the trailer of the much-awaited film Rangoon is finally out. It shows how love blooms in the time of war, with actors Kangana Ranaut, Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor highlighting the stormy affair between the characters.
The over three-minute long trailer opens with war planes hovering over a wide landscape and airstrikes. Putting the story in motion, the trailer takes one back to British India, with the freedom movement at an all time high.
Amid all the turbulence for independence, the main spotlight is on a love triangle between an actor, filmmaker and a soldier.
Did you know Kangana Ranaut almost signed an adult film?
In the Vishal Bhardwaj directorial, Kangana plays the role of a seductress Julia and Saif is the filmmaker who loves Julia. Shahid is the soldier named Nawab Malik who falls for Julia during a train journey.
Despite the stunning visuals, it is the dialogues that add a zing to the trailer. Be it the way Kangana says 'bloody hell', or her getting irritated and asking Shahid if he will even follow her to the bathroom.

Rangoon is set in the early 1940s, around the time of World War II. It narrates the story of how the relationship between three people - Saif, Kangana and Shahid - changes when she is sent to Burma to motivate the soldiers.
In terms of looks, Saif is the classy and sophisticated filmmaker, and Shahid sports a rugged look - who gets on board to keep Kangana's character safe during her trip to Burma.
Rangoon, backed by Sajid Nadiadwala and Bhardwaj, is slated to release on February 24, 2017.
