“India wants justice. Will break into their home and kill them,” says Saif’s character in the trailer to promote Phantom
The trailer of Kabir Khan’s upcoming directorial “Phantom”, featuring actors Saif Ali Khan and Katrina Kaif, has been unveiled — and it shows the duo in an action-packed avatar.
The two minutes and 42 seconds video begins with the visuals of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack of 2008 and shook the nation for 60 hours.
The trailer ends with the lines mouthed by Saif: “India insaaf chahti hain. Unke ghar mein ghuske marenge (India wants justice. Will break into their home and kill them).”
The screenplay of “Phantom” has been written in co-ordination with author Hussain Zaidi, and is an adaptation of his book “Mumbai Avengers”.
The first look of the film was unveiled on Friday, which had both the stars blindfolded with tri-colour, in the backdrop one can see Mumbai’s iconic The Taj Mahal Hotel burning. Both the posters were headlined: “A story you wish were true”.
This would be the first time that Saif will be working with Kabir while Katrina had teamed up with the director in the 2009 thriller “New York” and the 2012 action spy movie “Ek Tha Tiger”. “Phantom” is slated to hit the theatres on August 28.
SYNOPSIS: Phantom is a political thriller set in the volatile climate that exists in South Asia. Constant terror attacks against India have left the Indian people feeling vulnerable and angry. The Indian government and security agencies are helpless as the masterminds of the attacks are out of reach. When an infiltrator with plans to attack India is caught, the Head of India’s security agency and his team take matters into their own hands.
The film follows the protagonist Daniyal, whose journey to seek justice takes him to India, Europe, America and the volatile Middle East. Local assets in various countries help Daniyal, including Nawaz Mistry who works for an American security agency. Daniyal and Nawaz are drawn into a battle of wits with a shrewd and ruthless enemy. With the enemy hot on their heels, Daniyal and Nawaz against all odds try and finish the job they had set out to do. Along the way they find out that in a mission like this there is always a price to pay, in this case a very personal price.
