Last week we showed you the poster of “Raabta” which stars Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon as the lead pair.

Today the trailer of this much awaited movie was released and it has definitely triggered the audience’s curiosity. So now, this movie and it’s lead pair have managed to grab headlines all through its making on account of their alleged link-up rumours, which both the actors have categorically denied. But one look at the trailer and the chemistry between them is evident and infectious. They make a fresh pair with all the trappings of making a hit on screen Jodi.

Coming to the trailer, 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 first half of the trailer is all candyfloss with the good looking pair weaving their magic and then we’re shown these characters in a prehistoric era with bloody battles, bloodshed and loss of lives. 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.

While it’s easy to draw comparisons and see similarities between Raabta and last year’s disaster Mirzya, we are sure it is too early to arrive at conclusions. The trailer surely seems to have a more modern flavor to it than Mirzya.

Pritam has composed the music for this film and we also get to hear a re-hashed version of the popular love ballad Raabta from Agent Vinod, in the trailer, that adds to the mystique of the film and plot.

Raabta is Dinesh Vijan’s directorial debut. It is co-produced by T-series and Dinesh and Homi Adajania’s Maddock films. The romantic thriller is slated for release on 9th June this year.
