The First Poster of Kennedy Anurag Kashyap‘s next movie is out, and it looks like it will be a strange and interesting movie. The official plot summary says that the movie is about an ex-cop who can’t sleep and stays in different places while looking for forgiveness. The former police officer, who has been thought to be dead for a long time, works in secret for the crooked system.
Kennedy Anurag Kashyap’s next Movie poster
Kennedy Anurag Kashyap was made by Zed Studios and Good Bad Films. Rahul Bhat plays the ex-cop. On the poster, he looks scary, and Sunny Leone, the other main star in the movie, is standing in front of a door and screaming. The movie is a police noir, and the image fits right in with that style.
A gun and a Tchaikovsky Concerto were both in his hands. A masked man. The moon at full. Kennedy Anurag Kashyap’s movie has a striking, mysterious poster that fits what we know about the movie: “Kennedy is a ghost in the system looking for redemption,” is all the director said to Variety. However, the poster is an outlier in a marketing culture that focuses more on stars than ideas. The image also makes references to Kashyap’s other movies. Before the film’s premiere at the Cannes Film Festival’s Midnight Screenings section next month, Ranjan Singh, a producer at Kashyap’s production house Good Bad Films, and Sahil Kajale, a creative director at visual promotion firm Warrior’s Touch, who have worked together for about a decade, talked about how they condensed a two-hour film into a single image of Kennedy Anurag Kashyap, what the director told them to do, and the poster design clichés they’re
What kind of briefing did Anurag give you?
Ranjan: Anurag recommended that I make a poster in the “Giallo” style, which has a man in the center and a woman on the side who is either dancing or has a dead body. It looks like a B-movie noir, which is the type of movie Kennedy is. The Giallo style of image isn’t for everyone. Anurag and I tried it with Raman Raghav (2016), but not everyone got it. I called Sahil because I knew he could solve the problem.
What kinds of schedules were you making?
Ranjan: One week! They told us that the film had been chosen about 12 hours before they made the announcement. We thought the sign would be done by May. But then Cannes picked it, and Anurag called us from the airport to say, “We need a poster!” So I called Sahil and showed him the movie the next day at work. Over the next week, we worked on the picture together. But Anurag had a clear style, which made it easy for Sahil and the poster artist Bir Saaz to use his ideas. Instagram
