Raabta Trailer Is Same-To-Same As Magadheera, Says Unimpressed Twitter

Stills from Raabta trailer and Magadheera

Highlights

  • The first trailer of Raabta released on Monday afternoon
  • It also looks a little like Game Of Thrones, Twitter thinks
  • Like Raabta, Magadheera also told of reincarnation and revenge
The first trailer of Raabta, starring actors Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon, has reminded Twitter of another, older film - 2009 Telugu blockbuster Magadheera. Directed by S S Rajamouli, Magadheera had Ram Charan Teja playing the lead opposite actress Kajal Aggarwal and told of reincarnation, revenge and an interrupted love story that resumes 400 years later. Same to same, Twitter said after watching the trailer of Raabta, in which present-day Sushant and Kriti find their romance rudely hijacked by the villainous Jim Sarbh, just as he had in another life. It also looks a little like Game Of Thrones, Twitter thinks.
 
 
 
 
 
 
If Raabta is anything at all like Magadheera, which was a massive hit, perhaps it bodes well for its box office performance. Twitter is also hoping that the film isn't going to turn out like 2012's Dangerous Ishhq, an ill-fated attempt at past lives and love across different timelines which was meant to propel actress Karisma Kapoor back into the spotlight but tanked spectacularly. Bollywood's recent track record with reincarnation-themed movies has been spotty, ranging from hits like Om Shanti Om to turkeys like Mirzya.
Raabta is directed by Dinesh Vijan, producer of the Deepika Padukone films Love Aaj Kal, Cocktail and Finding Fanny. Deepika makes an appearance in a special song that she shot in Europe last year after completing her schedule for xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage, which was Deepika's Hollywood debut. Raabta is scheduled for June 9.
Meantime, Magadheera director S S Rajamouli has a monster weekend coming up soon - Baahubali: The Conclusion, part two of his epic fantasy starring Prabhas and Rana Daggubati, releases in two Fridays.
