The teaser opens with two males using a motorcycle as they speak about cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni. One of them says, “Is he a Sardar?” And the opposite one responds with, “No way, he is a Rajput. A Sardar! And, why are you even stuck between these castes – Rajput, Sardar etc.? He is very much like us. He came from grass root level and rose to this stature.” The first individual then explains Dhoni’s well-known helicopter shot.
Soon, they cowl their faces and equipment up for an assault. They bomb a gated compound and flee away earlier than cops emerge from contained in the compound and are seen inspecting a bundle mendacity close to the gate. The surprising revelation of a chopped off head comes throughout as a jolt because the teaser involves an finish. Before the tip, Parambrata makes an look as he’s handed over a message carved on a cleaning soap bar. The message says “gaddar khatam (traitors have been eliminated)” and he’s seen in handcuffs.
Sharing the teaser, Sudhir wrote on Twitter, “Watch! Introducing a rare talent: director Rajeev Baranwal. Terrific cast. Congratulations @001Danish ,@saugatam @Indranil160.

Said to be impressed by true occasions, the present Jehanabad is against the law drama set in a small city of Bihar in 2005. Given the teaser, the present appears to be set within the backdrop of the 2005 incident during which 372 inmates escaped from Jehanabad jail after a Naxalites assault in November 2005.
Sudhir Mishra is a showrunner for Jehnabad. His earlier outing was the Indian remake of the well-known Israeli present Fauda. Titled Tanaav, the present was set within the backdrop of tensions in Kashmir and traced a bunch of a particular unit cops as they handled numerous terror parts within the valley.
The present acquired blended critiques, when it launched this yr. The Hindustan Times’ overview for the present learn: “Tanaav is as much about the people and their lives as it is about Kashmir. And when I say people, it refers to both sides, the authorities as well as the militants. What the series does well is that it presents a human side of the ‘other side’ without glorifying or taking a stand either way. It shows the motivations, heroism, and faults every human has, regardless of their political affiliation and stance.”
