A contract killer loses his memory in an accident. He wakes up knowing only his name, and the company of a beautiful woman who wants to help him regain his identity.
Rajeev Khandelwal is less Jason Bourne (after all, the spy did wake up from an attempt on his life, with amnesia) and more Emraan Hashmi in the trailer for his upcoming thriller Fever.
The trailer gives us a few details about his character before the mind-altering accident: This is a contract killer, or as Rajeev finds it necessary to explain, “a professional assassin” or if you still don’t get it: “Jo paison ke liye logon ki zindagi ko khatam karne ka contract leta hai”. We see vignettes of the killer carrying out his contracts. In the midst of his bloody (we mean that literally) work, he also manages to seduce some women. Because in his own words, "Mere liye khoobsurti aam baat hai, aur khoobsurat ladkiyan roz ki baat hai". Okay then.
Then, the accident, waking up to realize his memory is gone, and in steps a mysterious woman — Gauhar Khan — who tells Rajeev’s character about his sordid past. Cue more kissing, some stripping scenes, and the film’s message: that there are three sides to every story — yours, theirs and the truth. To drum this into us, the trailer shows us this message three times.
The only reason to be excited about the Fever trailer is it gives us a chance to see Rajeev Khandelwal back in action. But we do wish the talented actor had chosen a better vehicle this time round.
