One of India’s most respected filmmakers overseas, Anurag Kashyap is back with his latest psychological thriller, Raman Raghav 2.0. The trailer of the film starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Vicky Kaushal is dark, gloomy and chilling.

The trailer opens with Nawazuddin, who plays a serial killer on the prowl, talking about his victims inside a police station. He gives the details of his murders and hints towards the absence of a pattern in his crimes.

Later, you meet a cop, Kaushal, who is disturbed in his personal life. Because of his sadism, his love life is heading nowhere, and then, he attracts the attention of Nawazuddin. A cat-and-mouse game begins at this juncture which can end either way.

The backdrop of metropolitan slums and low income group flats enhances the darkness of Kashyap’s world. Jay Oza’s mostly hand-held shots keep the audience engaged.
