Director Abhinay Deo’s Delhi Belly (2011) gave a shock to audiences with its no-holds-barred content. The film was also praised for Akshat Verma’s out-of-the-box writing. Verma is now making his directorial debut with Kaalakaandi.
The teaser of the film, which stars Saif Ali Khan, is just out. And it suggests the film is a quirky, wacky entertainer which sees the protagonist running around a lot.
It appears to be the story of a guy who gets entangled in a web of danger and how he manages to bail out. In this at least, Kaalakaandi seems to be on the lines of Delhi Belly.
The role seems tailor-made for Saif Ali Khan. He is a specialist in the kind of antics he does in the film, especially at the start of the teaser. The actor hasn’t had a hit for a long time and he must be certainly hoping to break the shackles with this film.
Sobhita Dhulipala stars opposite Khan. She does not appear in the first teaser, but she is said to have a meaty role in the film. Dhulipala made her debut last year with Raman Raghav 2.0 (2016), where she was praised for her act opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
