Darbar Trailer & Box Office Report
The trailer for Rajinikanth’s Darbar, directed by AR Murugadoss, was released on Monday. The film stars Nayanthara as the female lead and has Rajinikanth playing a police officer after 25 years.
The trailer begins with Rajinikanth’s character Aadithya Arunachalam, Commissioner of Mumbai, beating up some people and telling his officers, “Police is not a job, we live to protect, we die to serve”. However, he’s also referred to as a killer, suggesting that the supercop will have grey shades to his character. The trailer shows us glimpses from the ‘Chumma Kizhi’ song and also scenes between Rajinikanth and Nayanthara.
Suneil Shetty, the villain, appears to be a gangster who tries to threaten Aadithya. There’s a hat-tip to Rajinikanth’s love for playing the villain too and he ends the trailer by saying ‘I’m a baaaad cop!’.
