The trailer of Dinesh Vijan’s directorial debut Raabta promises a fresh and sinister take on reincarnation love sagas. Vijan has previously produced films like Love Aaj Kal, Cocktail and Badlapur. Starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon, Raabta starts off as a breezy romance between the leading pair, and then takes an unexpected turn. We’re taken to a period setting which tells us about the royal past life of these characters.
The film’s antagonist is Jim Sarbh, who was last seen in a stunning performance in Neerja. Going back and forth in time, the film has been mounted on an epic scale and the visuals are reminiscent of films like Magadheera and more recently, Mirzya.
Raabta’s music is composed by Pritam, with lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya and Irshad Kamil. The trailer also features a recreated version of the slow-burn, bluesy track ‘Raabta’ from Agent Vinod, composed by Pritam and written by Bhattacharya. Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Homi Adajania and Dinesh Vijan, Raabta releases on 9th June, 2017.
