Last week when the Raabta trailer was released, we just couldn’t help but swoon over the magical chemistry Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon exude on screen. Dinesh Vijan, better known for his films Cocktail, and Love Aajkal, makes his debut as a director with this modern love story with a historical rebirth saga. The over-two-minutes trailer has already broken a few records on the Internet last week and is all set to amaze the viewers today with its song launch which features Deepika Padukone. For those who don’t know, the xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, heroine is doing an item song in the film.
Raabta is the story of Shiv and Saira who travel through time for love. It’s a love story that could not be fulfilled in one lifetime. In the 2 minutes 20-second trailer, the Kuch Toh Hai Tujhse Raabta song (the unforgettable number from Agent Vinod) playing in the background weaves magic. It starts with the lead pair romancing in the beautiful locales of Europe and suddenly the narrative shifts into a tribal and ancient world where a beast ( Jim Sarbh) comes between the king and queen. Ending on a dramatic note when our antagonist, the beast, says, “Ek tha Raja, Ek Thi Rani, Dono mar gaye khatam kahaani”. So what happens to this Raja and Rani is what makes us curious to watch this reincarnation drama, releasing on June 9th.
The music of Raabta has been making all the right sounds on all the chartbusters. The first song, titled Ik Vaari Aa, just got released a few days back and is breaking the Internet since then. Sung by Arijit Singh, and music composed by Pritam, the song is a romantic melody and visually mesmerizing. It shows us the sizzling love story of this adorable couple. The beautiful lyrics are penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya.
Ever since the trailer of the movie was released, while some couldn’t stop swooning over the magical chemistry of the lead pair, others alleged that the film is a rip off of S.S Rajamouli’s 2009 Telugu blockbuster film, Magadheera featuring Kajal Aggarwal and Ram Charan. Apparently, Magadheera was also based on the theme of reincarnation and so was Saiyami Kher starrer, romantic saga, Mirzya.
