After trending on Twitter for more than a week, the first trailer of Akshay Kumar’s next film, Baby is out. In a tightly-knit teaser, director Neeraj Pandey packages the thrill of a terror plot and peppers it with some political sizzle.
Directed by Neeraj Pandey of A Wednesday and Special 26 fame, Baby is an action thriller where Akshay Kumar once again takes on ‘terrorists and corruption in the society’. Tapsee Pannu also features in the movie.
Pakistani actor Rashid Naz plays Maulana Abdul Rahman, the mastermind and founder of a terrorist group that has with operations all over the world. The trailer begins with Naz’s haunting voice as he says, “Jab tak Kashmir se India wapas nahi jata, tab tak Rahman aapki giraft mein nahi ayega.”
Danny Denzongpa essays the role of master strategist and chief of an undercover unit. Rana Daggubati plays another member of the unit while Anupam Kher, who marks his hat-trick with Neeraj Pandey (A Wednesday, Special 26 and now Baby), is the tech support of the unit in Baby.
At one point, Kay Kay Menon, who has a cameo in Baby, is seen behind the bars saying, “Suna hai Kasab ko AC wala kamra diye the ye log, usase to jada hi kiye hain hum.”
However, the trailer does not reveal who or what ‘BABY’ is.
Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Shital Bhatia, Cape of Good Films and Crouching Tiger, the film is slated to hit theatres on January 15, 2015.
