Ittefaq trailer: A promising whodunit starring Sonakshi Sinha, Sidharth Malhotra, Akshaye Khanna
‘Tumhare jaise bhutte hum roz sekte hain (We roast corn cobs like you everyday), ’ a stern Akshaye Khanna tells a frustrated Sidharth Malhotra in the trailer of Ittefaq.
Akshaye is back as the no-nonsense cop after playing virtually the same role in Sridevi’s Mom. Also back is Sonakshi Sinha as a ‘misunderstood’ woman who gets attacked by a murderer in her own home. But she could be lying, maybe she welcomed the man, Sidharth, in her home and later decided to lie about it.
The film promises a classic old whodunit with the story being told from two perspectives. Two murders have happened and the two suspects, Sonakshi and Sidharth, are hell bent on their own, two very different versions of the same night. One of them is definitely lying but who is it?
The film is the late filmmaker BR Chopra’s grandson Abhay Chopra’s directorial debut.
Ittefaq is an adaptation of a Yash Chopra film by the same name. The 1969 film starred Rajesh Khanna, Madan Puri and Nanda in lead roles. While Sidharth steps into Rajesh Khanna’s shoes, Nanda’s role will be essayed by Sonakshi. Akshaye plays Madan Puri’s role.

The film was shot on a 50-day non-stop schedule. Co-produced by Red Chillies Entertainment, Dharma Productions and BR films, Ittefaq is slated for a theatrical release on November 3.
