Another teaser, more world building and more action. Ajay Devgn and Tabu are coming together for another suspenseful thriller. This time, Tabu has turned into a cop, whereas Ajay Devgan appears to be a nefarious convict locked up in prison. The second teaser of the film was unveiled on January 24, 2023. The new video further gives a peek into the intriguing world of Bholaa. Ajay and Tabu appear to be involved in a cat-and-mouse chase. However, their backstory still remains a mystery. Adding more suspense to the drama is the song, ‘aaj phir jeene kee tamanna hai” playing in the backdrop.
The 1 min 50 second teaser shows high octane action sequences, woven into the emotional narrative of a father reuniting with his daughter– only after overcoming a series of dangerous challenges and beating bad men to pulp. There are trucks crashing, bikes skidding, cars flying, blood gushing and bones crushing in the teaser–set to the tune of a recreated Aaj Phir Jeene Ki Tammana Hai. Bholaa is another name for Lord Shiva, the god of destruction, who is a recurring theme in the teaser.
Sharing the second on Instagram, Ajay Devgn wrote: “Jab ek chattaan, sau shaitaanon se takrayega…” Watch the video here:
‘Bholaa’ is an official Hindi remake of the Tamil hit ‘Kaithi’ and Ajay has directed it. It has been styled as the story of a “one-man army, set in one night, fighting a multitude of enemies in various forms, human and otherwise.” Ajay has helmed the film, which will also feature Tabu, Sanjay Mishra, Deepak Dobrial, Raai Lakshmi, and Makrand Deshpande in prominent roles.
Kaithi starred Karthi in the lead and was helmed by Vikram director Lokesh Kanagaraj. The 2019 action-thriller was a blockbuster and received tremendous critical acclaim. The film revolved around an ex-convict (Karthi), who decides to meet his daughter for the first time after being released from prison but gets caught in a face-off between police and drug mafia.
Previously, the makers of ‘Bholaa’ unveiled the first teaser of the film. In the almost one-and-a-half-minute-long teaser of ‘Bholaa’ an orphanage is shown where a little girl is asked to be ready, as one of her relatives is expected to visit her. The scene then shifts to prison, where jail inmates introduce Ajay as an intense and powerful man, whose identity is unknown. Towards the end of the teaser, there is a glimpse of the ‘Golmaal’ actor rambling his bike into a car before jumping onto it with a Trishul in his hand.
Bholaa is produced by his banner Ajay Devgn Films, T-Series Films, Reliance Entertainment and Dream Warrior Pictures. It will release in the theaters on March 30, 2023.
