John Abraham-starrer Batla House is based on the 2008 encounter where two suspected Indian Mujahideen terrorists were killed and several others were injured in Delhi. The incident is famously called the Batla House encounter.
Directed by Nikkhil Advani, the film has John play Sanjeev Kumar Yadav, the former assistant commissioner of police who led the mission.
The makers have just shared the first teaser of the film. The small video creates tension and at the same time generates an interest in the film.
The teaser gives you a sneak-peak into the tense and thrilling encounter between both the parties. We are shown the two suspected terrorists firing bullets in order to get out alive and the police team fearlessly combating them. Someone can be heard yelling, asking them to stop.
We only see John’s back as he says, ‘What happened that day in Batla house? Were we wrong? Was I wrong?’ The lines offer hope that the film might present an unbiased view of the encounter. But one can only be sure once the film is released.
The storyline and the setting brings back memories of Shootout At Lokhandwala (2007) and Shootout At Wadala (2013). In the latter, John was at the other side of the law in the role of the late gangster Manya Surve.
Batla House will be released on 15 August. The film will be clashing with Akshay Kumar-starrer Mission Mangal and Prabhas’ Saaho.
