Judging by the teaser, it looks like Republic is going to be a critical take on the Indian political system. The 54-second teaser is filled with powerful dialogues penned by Deva Katta, about how the ruling powers are making civil servants their slaves. It also touche upon how feudalism is very much alive in the constitutional systems. Even though the whole teaser hints at the clash between a politician and a civil servant, the reasons behind it aren’t revealed.
Sai Dharam Tej’s new avatar and his characterization also make the teaser worth a watch. It is going to be a refreshing one, not only for him, for the audience as well, as he is moving beyond his romantic hero image. Overall, the Republic teaser promises a gripping actioner that questions the ruling system and procedures of India.
Produced by J Bhagavan and J Pulla Rao under the JB Entertainments banner, Republic features music by Manisharma. The film is due in cinema halls on June 4.
