Saif Ali Khan is coming to thrill the big screen again, but this time he disguised himself into a completely dreaded avatar of an Aghori(ascetic Shaiva Sadhus) seeking for revenge and chasing his arch-nemesis. In some sequences of the movie, he is resembling like the legend Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean. Along with Saif Deepak Dobriyal also featuring in Laal Kaptaan with some hunting dogs, brutally killing people on contract. Although Laal Kaaptaan seems quite unusual and impressive.
