Those who have been missing Saif Ali Khan’s presence on screen lately, we have some amazing news for you. The actor is back in a never-seen-before avatar in his upcoming film ‘Kaalakaandi’.
The makers have rolled out the teaser of his upcoming dark comedy and it is going to make you fall for him all over again.
A glimpse into the teaser, and you just know there is definitely something great in store for you. The writer of cult film ‘Delhi Belly’ Akshat Verma is back this time to make his directorial debut with this dark and quirky film.
In this 37-second clip, Saif’s acting is so unerring that you can’t take your eyes off him.
The teaser gives us a glimpse of the plot and it looks pretty interesting. You see Saif doing weird things in front of a hooker. It shows montages of various scenes from the film, hinting that the story revolves around a single night. But that’s not it, there is a lot of mystery; you have cops, gun shots, robbers, car chase and Deepak Dobriyal making a menacing appearance.
However, what grabs all the attention is Saif donning a yellow feather jacket which metaphorically drops the hint that his character has various layers and shades.
Talking to Pinkvilla, Saif told, “Kaalakaandi is a film I’m so happy to be a part of! It’s a cross-section of Mumbai with underworld goons, doomed bankers and idealistic lovers all mixed together in this karmic tale about love, crime and living a lifetime in one night. Akshat has written and directed this unique movie and he is probably the only voice who tells it exactly like it actually is. Mumbai is a crazy, beautiful city and he has captured it perfectly in this very fun and very moving film.”
The film gives you a very familiar vibe of ‘Delhi Belly’ and the background score is something different because that’s not something you hear in our usual Bollywood movies.
The teaser is so engrossing that it wouldn’t be wrong to say that this might be Saif’s craziest role till date.
The film is set to release on September 8 this year and also stars Akshay Oberoi, Vijay Raaz, Shobita Dhulipala, Kunaal Roy Kapur and Isha Talwar.
