Top 5 reasons to watch Saif Ali Khan, Katrina Kaif's 'Phantom'!

By now we all know what to expect from a Kabir Khan film. After Salman Khan starrer 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' has become the most loved film of this year, the maverick filmmaker is ready to hit the screens with his yet another blockbuster in the making titled 'Phantom'. The film is high on the must-watch list of movie lovers, and today we list out top five reasons for you to watch this action-packed drama on August 28, 2015. Take a look at reasons on why you can't miss this one:

Kabir Khan

Yes, he has turned out to be one director whose works you just can't afford to miss. All his films till now have been accepted well by the audiences across the globe. After 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan', Kabir's 'Phantom' is one of the much-awaited films of 2015. The controversial plot of the film has already let many wagging tongues do the talking. However, the filmmaker is quite sure that the audience will understand the theme and give much love to this one like they have done earlier. Eager now to watch this one?

Saif Ali Khan

The 'chhote' Nawab will be back on the silver screen after a long hiatus. It's always good to see Saif in roles which you usually don't expect him to fit in. His charisma and style is such that an urbane character looks tailor-made for him but that does not mean that Saif can't pull off other roles with elan. This suave actor will be seen kicking some butt off in this action drama. The plot of terrorism has intrinsically woven in the script and it will surely be interesting to watch Saif play a great role on-screen.

Katrina Kaif

The name is enough to drag people in cinema halls. Her beauty has besotted many and she has an ocean of fans across the globe. Katrina too will be seen on-screen after a long time. Her last release 'Bang Bang' with Hrithik Roshan might have minted much moolah at the Box Office but critics didn't seem any impressed. This time the leggy lass will be seen in a rather intense action drama, and of course from the looks of it she does look like a complete 'Afghan Jalebi'. We are waiting for the film to hit screens Kat!

Music

The music of 'Phantom' is taken care of by Pritam Chakraborty whereas the background score is done by Julius Packiam. The song 'Afghan Jalebi' is already riding high on chartbusters. It is sung by Asrar (Syed Asrar Shah). Another song titled 'Saware' by Arijit Singh is as melodious as you expect his songs to be. So, in this department too the filmmaker scores well!

Plot

The storyline of 'Phantom' revolves around the post 26/11 attacks in Mumbai. It also talks about global terrorism in general, reportedly. The screenplay of the film has been written in co-ordination with author Hussain Zaidi, and is an adaptation of his book 'Mumbai Avengers'. Interestingly, the film was earlier titled 'Daniyal Khan'. With controversial plot in place, we are expecting nothing less than any wireworks at the Box Office too. Book your tickets now!
