Raabta in cinemas now.

Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon starrer romantic thriller Raabta has finally hit cinema screens worldwide today and the reviews are pouring in. Apart from Kriti Sanon and Sushant Singh Rajput, the film also stars Jim Sarbh in a pivotal role. Raabta is Dinesh Vijan’s directorial debut. It is co-produced by T-series and Dinesh and Homi Adajania’s Maddock films.

The movie tries to bring back the classic Bollywood love story with the “janam janam ka saath” backdrop. Sushant plays Shiv while Kriti plays Saira. The film spans across two timelines, the first being the contemporary urban times and then goes into a prehistoric era with bloody battles and bloodshed. There is Jim Sarbh of “Neerja” fame added to this scenario and he makes it a love triangle of sorts. Raabta actually means an “unexplained connection” and the three lead actors here are shown to have a karmic connect.

As far as the first reactions to the film goes, it has been a mixed bag. Let us take a look at what the people from the film industry have to say about Raabta.

  • Ayushmann Khurrana was highly impressed with the film.

  • Vajir Singh, the editor of film trade website box office India loved both the timelines the film ventures into.

  • Actress Naaz Norouzi was left speechless after the movie screening.

  • Here is what casting director Mukesh Chhabra had to say about the film.

  • Film Journalist and anchor Faridoon couldn’t get over the lead pair’s chemistry.

  • Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh did not need too many words to describe the film. He was not impressed at all.

  • Ditto with Film critic Rajeev Masand. Raabta = Raabish!!  Ouchh!

  • And how can Kamaal R Khan KRK be left behind, He ripped Raabta apart in his trade mark style.

So, reviews on Raabta so far are pretty polarizing. Catch the film in a theater near you to decide for yourself.
