The Raabta trailer was out last week and we can’t wait for the 9th of June. Undoubtedly, the trailer looks beautiful. Everyone’s excited to see the new jodi of Kriti Sanon and Sushant Singh Rajput, while Jim Sarbh reprises his role as a villain. All the actors look good in the past and present timelines. Oh yes, if you haven’t seen the trailer, you must know that Raabta alternates between two different eras. Kriti and Sushant’s characters are lovers in both, while Jim’s character seems to be that hurdle in their relationship. It pretty much sounds like something you have already seen before. No need to rack your brains. Here are the movies Raabta’s plot seem similar to:
One of the first movies that comes to mind after watching Raabta’s trailer is Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Mirzya. The movie has similar alternating timelines, the first being a rustic, mythological love story, while the other one, a modern romance. While Mirzya didn’t do too well in theatres, let’s just hope Raabta does not meet the same fate.
This Southern romantic action flick, starring Ram Charan and Kajal Aggarwal has been the topic of conversation since the Raabta trailer has been out. Many have compared the two movies, which share the plot lines of romance, reincarnation, and revenge. If Raabta is anything like Magadheera though, it’s safe to say that the movie will be a super hit.
This Southern hit has been breaking records since its release and it’s only natural for filmmakers to be inspired by the epic fantasy drama. What Baahubali and Raabta have in common is a particular scene in the trailer, where Sushant is seen near a waterfall, with tribesmen in the background. Baahubali has a very similar scene, which makes us think that the idea might just be borrowed.
Sushant and Kriti make a fantastic pair. Their chemistry is off the charts and their witty dialogues to one another make our hearts melt. They remind us a lot of Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone from Tamasha. Ranbir and Deepika make a great jodi on the screen and Sushant and Kriti seem to follow their lead. If they are indeed together IRL, hopefully, things don’t go the same way as Ran-Deep.

You had almost forgotten this Kunal Kolhi film, starring Priyanka Chopra and Shahid Kapoor, until we just reminded you of it. Here, PeeCee and Shahid (who were also rumored to be dating at the time) played lovers across three eras. Their love was put to test in every era but in the end, they always ended up together. Can Raabta have a similar story? We hope not!
