Salaar is one of the most awaited films as Prabhas has teamed up with KGF fame Prashanth Neel. The film is all set to release on December 23, and the trailer was released yesterday. Fans of Prabhas are happy to see their favorite hero in a mass avatar. However, a majority of the audience did not like the trailer. Let’s look at five reasons why Salaar’s trailer did not click the way it was intended to.
Prabhas’s late entry into the trailer
The trailer of Salaar is 3 minutes 40 seconds and Prabhas makes an entry only after two minutes. Generally, when a promo is released, the impact needs to be created right away but that does not happen as Prabhas is shown in the last part. Though he makes the most of it, a section feels that the director got the trailer cut wrong.
Similarities to KGF
Yet another major aspect that has drawn criticism was that the trailer of Salaar reminded many of KGF. The world of Salaar, the dusty visuals, the theme, artwork, instantly remind us of KGF. This is also one factor that did not go well with many.
Lack of enough mass moments
As Prabhas enters very late into the trailer, there is not much scope to showcase mass moments on Prabhas. The ones shown are limited and do not create much of an impact. The thrills are just about okay and have been showcased in many Prabhas’ films earlier. The mass pulse that Prabhas generates is missing.
Lack of punch dialogues
Whenever a trailer comes out, there is one dialogue that catches the imagination of many. In every trailer, there is a hook line that the makers put which goes viral. But in Salaar there is nothing of that sort. The only dialogue where Prabhas says ‘I request’ also does not create any impact.
Lack of strong conflict
In one of his interviews, Prashanth Neel stated that the film is about two close friends turning enemies. But that is not shown much in the trailer. By the looks of it, the animosity between Prabhas and Prithviraj starts at the end of the first part. So, the strong conflict point is missing in the trailer. Now, only when we watch the entire film, we whether Salaar will impress us or not.
