Ajay Devgn is all set to win hearts and minds with his upcoming movie Maidaan. In this film, he portrays the role of Syed Abdul Rahim, a coach who takes a Kabir Khan-like approach to coaching sports. Maidan teaser of the Boney Kapoor production was released on Thursday and it left a great impression on viewers.
Maidan Movie teaser takes us back to the 1950s and introduces us to the Indian football team that qualified for the Olympics for only the second time. What’s remarkable about this team is that they play the “greatest game” barefoot. We are then introduced to the team’s coach, Syed Abdul Rahim, played by Ajay Devgn. The teaser shows us glimpses of intense training montages, stunning goals, and electrifying pep talks.
Maidaan also stars Priyamani and is directed by Amit Sharma, the director of the critically acclaimed film Badhaai Ho. The music for the film is composed by the legendary AR Rahman. Due to the Covid pandemic, the film has faced several delays. Last year, Priyamani spoke to HT about the delay, saying, “We finished shooting some time back, the entire film is finished, but it had to be shifted. The makers also had to face a lot of difficulties because of Covid, they couldn’t get the crew and the actors to fly down. We followed all protocols…and now looking forward to releasing it. It is going to be a different film. It’s a different take even for Amit Sharma, who has directed a film like this and added another feather to his cap.”
Ajay devgan Maidaan will be released on June 23, 2023. It was earlier slated for release on October 15, 2021, but was delayed due to the pandemic. There was also some controversy about the film clashing with SS Rajamouli’s RRR, in which Ajay Devgn also had a short role. Boney Kapoor expressed his displeasure about the scheduling conflict, saying it was unethical for RRR’s team to announce the release on the same day as Maidaan.
In conclusion, Maidaan promises to be an inspiring and riveting film that showcases the determination and grit of the Indian football team of the 1950s.
