The much-delayed political thriller ‘Phantom’ is finally up for a big release, and while everyone had been curiously waiting to watch the pairing of Saif Ali Khan and Katrina Kaif again on-screen, the trailer has left all spellbound with higher expectations!
The film is an official adaptation of journalist-author S. Husain Zaidi’s ‘Mumbai Avengers’ that tells a fictional story about how a man, along with his team, goes on a special mission to kill the masterminds who were involved in the 26/11 Mumbai Terror Attacks.
The cinematography and background sound looks brilliant and ensures the movie to be a treat for all the fans; some portions remind of director Kabir Khan’s debut film ‘Kabul Express’! The movie promises to be high on patriotism with powerful dialogues and a gritty and edgy storyline.
Saif Ali Khan looks dapper and handsome in his stubble avatar, in a role that is very much different from his “cool-lover-boy” image. The actor badly needs a big box-office hit and ‘Phantom’ surely looks like the money-spinner for him! Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub looks promising. On the other hand, Katrina looks gorgeous and comes across as the fun-element in the movie to keep the entertainment level high!
This trailer once again proves why Kabir Khan is the best director Hindi Cinema has got right now! The director knows how to make a movie revolving a political issue while maintaining the entertainment level! Be it ‘Kabul Express’,’New York’,’Ek Tha Tiger’ or the recently released ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, none of his movies have been a disappointment! And with the author of the book as the Screenplay writer, we can be sure of the movie being dark and to-the-point yet worth watching!

Produced by UTV Motion Pictures and Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, the movie is slated to release next month on 28th!
