Prabhas has something for ‘die-hard fans’

Saaho teaser promises a lot of action and some clever jibes

Saaho has been in the making for quite some time. Time and again, fans of actor Prabhas have stepped up momentum on social media forums asking the team to unveil the teaser/trailer. However, they had to be content with poster releases. The wait ended on Thursday morning.

Minutes after the teaser (in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Hindi) went up, fans called it a Mission-Impossible-meets-Fast-and-Furious venture from Telugu cinema. Saaho’s action choreographers are Kenny Bates, Peng Zhang, Dhilip Subbarayan, Bob Brown, Ram-Lakshman, Stefan and Stunt Shiva.

Director Sujeeth’s film will aim for a nationwide box office pull when it releases on August 15, hoping to cash in on Prabhas’s pan-India appeal after the success of S S Rajamouli’s Baahubali films.

While Saaho had always been promoted as a high-action thriller, the first few moments of the teaser begin on a gentler note, introducing Shraddha Kapoor who finds a soulmate in Prabhas. The visuals soon move into the action mode, intermittently revealing the other characters played by Neil Nitin Mukesh, Jackie Shroff, Mahesh Manjrekar and Vennela Kishore, among others. Amid all the high-octane Hollywood-style action sequences is the tongue-in-cheek jibe where Prabhas quips “die-hard fans”, when Shraddha raises a question on the violent people gunning for them.

The ambitious film has cinematography by Madhie, production design by Sabu Cyril, editing by Sreekar Prasad, background music by Ghibran, and visual effects supervised by Kamalakannan.
