Bollywood actor Nana Patekar, who stars in Marathi films as well, is back in a new film called Natsamrat. The trailer of the movie is out now. The stalwart is in top form for Natsamrat, which is apt for the movie’s title that means the Emperor of Actors. The trailer of the movie reveals that it is about a veteran theatre actor who has been the best of his lot, acting in plays based on William Shakespeare’s works. But towards the evening of his career, the Natsamrat is homeless and weary.
This movie actually reminded us of Amitabh Bachchan‘s film The Last Lear that has him playing a similar character, although he is not homeless. The Last Lear was directed by Rituparno Ghosh and produced by Arjun Rampal who also starred in it apart from Preity Zinta.
After this movie releases, comparisons between the two acting legends of Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan and Nana Patekar, will happen for sure. The Last Lear is a movie not appreciated by everyone. The story of Natsamrat though seems quite different and brings out the best in Nana Patekar. People love to see him in this avatar and we can already sense that the movie is going to be a hit at the box office.
Natsamrat releases on January 1, 2016. Watch this space for more updates on the movie!
