The trailer of the much awaited Bollywood project, Raabta released yesterday and all is not well. The film features MS Dhoni fame Sushant Singh Rajput in the lead role. Undoubtedly, he is quite familiar to Telugu audience with the dubbed version of cricketer Dhoni’s biopic. After MS Dhoni, the actor is all set to impress the audience with this new project. But unfortunately, besides the richness in production values, this trailer gives a big shock to Telugu audience.
Raabta trailer looks like the exact replica of S.S. Rajamouli’s Magadheera. The story of Raabta also revolves around a dead love story and reincarnation of lead actors. If you watch the trailer, you will definitely remember Ranadev Billa, Mithravinda Devi and Kala Bhairava in the form of Jim Sarbh, Kriti Sanon and Sushant on screen in their respective roles. The only difference is, the present day love story between Kriti and Sushant has too many kisses than in Magadheera. Also, in the Telugu version, war happens between the kings, but it looks like aTribal fight in Raabta. Speaking frankly, it exactly looks like old wine in a new bottle.
After Magadheera turned out to be a blockbuster in Telugu, Bollywood actors like Hrithik Roshan and Shahid Kapoor had planned to do the remake of it, but due to some unknown reasons, it didn’t happen. But Raabta will make you remember Magadheera for sure.
Well! We wouldn’t know if it’s a remake or a copy or just a reference until the movie releases.
