Vidyut Jamwal is a razor-sharp spy in new promo of IB 71
The film is directed by Sankalp Reddy
A new promo of the upcoming film IB 71 was released on Friday. Titled ‘IB operation 1: Intelligence in Action', the video showcases Vidyut Jammwal as a master spy from Intelligence Bureau taking charge.
The promo shows Vidyut and his team of undercover agents huddled in a hotel room. There is a knock on the door. Everybody gets on their guard. Vidyut even grabs a pen, just in case. The door is opened. A harried man introduces himself as an army officer who has been undercover in the ISI for years. He says that they have to run or else Pakistani agents will kill all of them tonight. Vidyut seems to trust him. He then asks the agent where he is from since his accent sounds north Indian. “Delhi,” the agent replies. “I am from sector 13 in Chandigarh,” says Vidyut. The agent smiles and says it is his favourite place in the city. As the agent turns, Vidyut twists his neck. “There is no Sector 13 in Chandigarh,” he says.
The film, which is based on true events of the Ganga Hijack infamously called 'The hijack that never happened', uncovers India's top-secret mission conducted by the Intelligence Bureau that made India win the 1971 war.
Talking about the video, actor-producer Vidyut said: "With this intriguing special promo, we wanted to showcase that the Intelligence Bureau is always alert no matter what. For a spy, it is not just the physical strength but also about having a razor-sharp mind and the ability to anticipate every move of the enemy. IB 71 is one such film that will give you a sneak peek into the thrilling world of India's Intelligence Bureau."
Director Sankalp Reddy added: "IB 71 takes a deep dive into the world of espionage and the psychology of a spy. With the film, the aim is to take our audience on a journey that showcases how Indian Intelligence, through clever manoeuvres, made us win the war."
