Aiyaary is a crime drama directed by Neeraj Pandey, who has made films like Baby and Special 26 with Akshay Kumar.
The almost three minutes long trailer gives a sneak peek into the relationship of a mentor Manoj Bajpayee and his protegee Sidharth Malhotra. The intense look of both the actors is setting the tone of the film and adding to the elements of the thriller are versatile actors Naseeruddin Shah and Anupam Kher. From the look of it, it seems the film is a battle between two army officers who have their own ideologies and ways of getting things done. The trailer also hints at a scam that will harm Indian Army’s reputation.
Manoj’s character Colonel Abhay Singh is on a lookout for Sidharth aka Major Jai Bakshi, a surveillance officer. In the trailer, Manoj tries to gauge the meaning of the words “Aiyaar” and “Aiyaary” and for him ‘aiyaar’ is someone who remains in disguise to fool others. Director Neeraj Pandey explained the title of the film to Mumbai Mirror, “Aiyaary has been a special project with a very exciting ensemble. ‘Aiyaary’ means the ultimate trickery. The word ‘Aiyaary’ fabulously sums up what a Soldier resorts to ultimately in the face of extreme crisis. His intelligence, sharpness and wit not only bedazzles his own troop but also earns him the respect of his enemies.”
