THE Warner Bros released today (2) the first drama trailer Blinded By The Light that receives the national title of The music of my life.
So the screenwriter, director and producer Gurinder Chadha presents a story packed by the melody and lyrics of the timeless songs of Bruce Springsteen.
The music of my life tells the story of Javed (Viveik Kalra), a British teenager born to Pakistanis, growing up in the city of Luton, England, in 1987. In the midst of the economic and racial turbulences of the time, he writes poetry as a way to escape the intolerance of his hometown and the inflexibility of his traditional father.
However, when one of his colleagues introduces him to the “Boss” song, Javed sees parallels between his simple life and Springsteen’s striking lyrics. As Javed discovers a cathartic escape from his own repressed dreams, he also begins to find the courage to express himself in his own voice.
