Enjoy the Rhythmic Swaying of the ‘Trishna’ Teaser Trailer

There’s a lot of dancing going on in this trailer for Michael Winterbottom‘s Trishna. Typical Bollywood style numbers with their elaborate flair. Intimate undulations between two people falling in love. The kind of dance moves that happen between sheets. They’re all there, and they all look stunning.

Winterbottom seeks to confound here a bit, combining several elements from past films and making something that looks nothing like anything he’s done before. There’s a dash of 24 Hour Party People, the sensuality of 9 Songs, and maybe even a taste of A Mighty Heart‘s dramatics, but over all, this story of star cross’d lovers looks like a new animal.

It stars Freida Pinto and Riz Ahmed as the daughter of a rickshaw owner and the son of a land developer that only have eyes for each other. How much do you want to bet that their love is forbidden?

Sink down into the poetry of it all for yourself:

Gorgeous. Exquisite. Winterbottom has crafted yet another beautiful piece.

Now, the only question is whether he and his production got every other element right. Our one clue that they did is in the way Pinto can smash a heart to bits with just a look.

What do you think?
