There’s no doubt that Bollywood cinema has its fair share of action heroes and actor Akshay Kumar has, and continues to make a name for himself in that department with a flurry of titles, current and upcoming. That said, the May 1, release of his latest, Gabbar from director Krish is now getting a full-on headstart with a full trailer featuring Kumar as a dark vigilante delivering justice to an unjust system, joined by the supporting performance of actress Shruti Haasan. Of course, as is the nature of Bollywood action, the delivery entails a Smörgåsbord of big kicks with bigger leaps and stunt sequences as usual, which should be fun anyway you cut it.
This is one such story of a man remorselessly wronged by the establishment. One freak incident results in everything he held dear taken away from him. Predictably, the system doesn’t seem to care – let alone resolve. That’s when Ajay (AK) takes matters in his own hands. An underground vigilante army, a secret identity, an elaborate modus…all of these combined make a ‘GABBAR’ – a true hero, with dreadful villainous instincts.
Check out this week’s new trailer, and don’t miss a beat ahead of Kumar‘s upcoming releases after this!
