A man who has never drunk, smoked or done drugs in his life gets diagnosed with stomach cancer. Do whatever you feel like doing, his doc advises him. And that’s where the crazy adventures of Saif Ali Khan’s character in Kaalakaandi begins.

The trailer promises intense performances (look out for Deepak Dobriyal and Vijay Raaz apart from Saif himself), kickass dialogues (is CBFC letting through all those cuss words?), murder, lust and everything in between.

Check out the trailer here:

Setting aside rumours of the film releasing on Netflix instead of theatres, Kaalakaandi is all set for release on 12 January.

The makers released a funky teaser poster of the film earlier which showed Saif in silhouette against a bright pink background, his hair tied in multiple ponytails with fluorescent rubber-bands. The silhouette looms over a brightly lit skyline of Mumbai much like a bird of prey. Saif - clearly in his element - seems to hold a crazy crew together under his wings against the background of what looks like a cross between The Queen’s Necklace and Worli Sea Face.

The Akshat Verma (remember his Delhi Belly?) thriller-dark comedy was ordered 73 cuts by the CBFC and also stars Deepak Dobriyal, Vijay Raaz, Kunal Roy Kapoor, and Neil Bhoopalam.
