#raabtatrailer The parallel storytelling doesn't work for me in this case. Seems like another version of Magadheera and MIrzya.Not impressed? Anuj Radia (@TheAnujRadia) April 17, 2017

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.
