Trailer Review (3/5)
The trailer of Maidaan only gives a glance at the dusty past of Indian Football. The positive thing that people notice is its classic visuals and color contrast to give a more realistic view with a mesmerizing past.
But the negative point is there is no patriotic or bold background music. And another negative point is there is no bold dialogue. Dangal (2016) completes the actual essence of sports with its music as well. There is no reference for the character of Ajay Devgn as he has to play a bold role as a coach, so we have to wait for the official release of the movie to see his different roles in different situations.
It doesn’t mean that the music is bad but not that impressive. The music or film score is a very important criterion for the success of any film. Overall the trailer is so good and attach to the golden era of an Indian football team.
