As part of the build-up to the mega trailer launch, team Kaabil will be releasing a string of teasers, stills and motion posters starting October 21. The theatrical trailer, which is scheduled to be out on October 26, will reportedly be attached to the prints of Shivaay and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
Directed by Sanjay Gupta and produced by Rakesh Roshan, Kaabil stars Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam in the lead roles. It is a revenge-thriller, in which the lead pair plays visually impaired characters. The concept is fresh, but the film is most likely to face stiff competition from Shah Rukh Khan's Raaes, which arrives in theatres on the same day as Kaabil, January 26.
Kaabil needs to work for Roshan, since his previous film, Mohenjo Daro, tanked at the box office, and the one before that, Bang Bang, couldn't achieve blockbuster status. Roshan is a superstar, who enjoys a loyal fan-base and therefore back-to-back underperformers from him comes as a dampener for followers. He will hopefully strike gold with Kaabil.
Meanwhile, here is what social media users have to say about the subtle Kaabil teaser, which hardly has any visuals, but is big on background score and some very strong dialogues.
