Raabta - a cocktail of reincarnated romance with a heft of fantasy

Film: Raabta

Language: Hindi

Director: Dinesh Vijan

Cast: Sushant Singh Rajput, Kriti Sanon, Jim Sarbh and Rajkumar Rao

Duration: 2 hrs 14 minutes

Sypnosis: A reincarnation drama with two lovers – Shiv (Sushant Singh Rajput) and Saira (Kriti Sanon) returning to the current century to conclude their once forgotten love affair. These two individuals go through their normal routines until their paths cross. They realize that they belong together, unaware of a connection formed hundreds of years ago. Drawn to each other, they go through a bedlam of love, fantasy, adventure and life, literally twice.

Review: Even after the roadblocks of a controversy of plagiarism for the SS Rajamouli film- Magadheera, the film has been successful in hitting the screens well. The concept of the film, we can safely say, is repetitive. But the movie is way better than the others for the sizzling chemistry of the lead actors – Sushant and Kriti. Though it is incomprehensible how a rich, eccentric and unhinged man who goes around kidnapping women is allowed to roam free in Europe, without any fear of authorities. If your mood speaks for a cute romance with a bulk load of fantasy, then this is the film to watch.
