Bollywood actor Rajkummar Rao starrer ‘Newton’ trailer is out and it gives us quite a different impression of Newton.
The film revolves around Newton (Rajkummar Rao) who is assigned election duty in a naxalite area. While many believe that due to the constant fear of guerrilla attacks, no one will cast their vote, Newton decides to bring the change because “If you change nothing, nothing will change.” Despite the odds stacked against him, he tries his best to conduct fair voting.
Rajkummar plays an honest man in the movie, who is actually proud of his honesty. He rejects a girl’s proposal because she is underage. Later we see him going into the hinterlands of India, where he and his election team have to educate the people about voting and their rights. There he realises that for these people, elections make no damn sense, while for the rest feel it’s a joke. Within two minutes, the trailer drew a stark depiction.
The film is produced by Manish Mundra of Drishyam Films, best known for films like Masaan and Ankhon Dekhi. Newton had also won the CICAE Art Cinema Award in the Forum segment at 67th Berlin International Film Festival.
Directed by Amit Masurkar, the movie also stars Pankaj Tripathi, Anjali Patil, Raghuvir Yadav and Sanjay Mishra.
The film is slated to release on September 22.
