“Have you ever met someone for the first time, but in your heart you feel as if you’ve met them before?”
― JoAnne Kenrick,
The Raabta Trailer clocks in at almost 2 minutes and 20 seconds and flirts with the aforementioned quote throughout its running time.
Shiv (Rajput) and Saira (Sanon) are soaked in love and bathed in undying passion. Their intimacy and ardor, which includes a now done-to-death underwater smooch (Read Gangster and OK Jaanu), lingers in every frame, with the Agent Vinod song, Raabta, playing in the background.
One half of the trailer is your usual candyfloss romance, with some witty exchanges between the lead actors and innocent flirting. The twist in the tale lies in the other part, when the action and romance unexpectedly take us to the ancient era, giving us a hint of reincarnation.
The nemesis in the lives of our protagonists is Jim Sarbh, whom we saw as the dreaded terrorist in the National-Award winning film Neerja last year. He is as menacing and threatening as he was in that thriller and could be the trump-card of Raabta too.
Singh and Sanon, meanwhile, portray the charm, vigor, pain and anguish of reincarnated lovers with aplomb. Subterfuge, rage and heartbreak, all seem to be crucial ingredients of this romantic drama.
All set to hit the screens on the 9th of June, 2017, it will be interesting and intriguing to witness whether Raabta is more Magadheera or Mirzya. With what we have seen in the trailer, hope it falls on the former side.
