Mumbai: Director Nagesh Kukunoor’s ‘Dhanak’ has garnered fame at several film festivals and is now set to release in India. The makers have released the trailer online that has created a lot of buzz. With 'Dhanak', the noted filmmaker completes his humane trilogy after his award-winning films, ‘Dor’ and ‘Iqbal’. The Ayesha Takia-Gul Panag starrer ‘Dor’ and ‘Iqbal’ starring Shreyas Talpade had tugged the heartstrings with their simple but heartwarming stories and now ‘Dhanak’ is touted to be notches above.
‘Dhanak’ revolves around eight-year old visually impaired boy Chotu and his 10-year-old sister Pari, who has promised her younger brother, that he will be able to see by the time he turns nine. Happy and precocious Chotu is the life of his small village in Rajasthan, while Pari is his eyes and his best friend. Once when Pari sees a poster of Sharukh Khan (SRK) appealing to people to donate their eyes, she is convinced that her reel life hero can help her fulfill her promise to her brother. What unfolds is a magical journey that only the innocence of childhood allows to experience with their ability to see magic in every little corner of this complicated world.
Bollywood's King Khan, Shah Rukh also applauded the trailer by tweeting, "My best wishes to these beautiful kids & to Nagesh & Elahe."
