Adivi Sesh vows to protect patriots in Major teaser

The 94-second teaser introduces us to Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan, a wounded soldier standing in the flames

Published: 12th April 2021

Actor Mahesh Babu shared the much-awaited teaser of his upcoming production, Major, on social media. The film showcases the untold story of Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan, who lost his life during the 26/11 Mumbai attacks and was posthumously awarded the Ashoka Chakra for his bravery.

The teaser gives a sneak peek of the journey of Sandeep from his childhood to his death in the terrorist attack. Adivi Sesh has stepped into the shoes of Sandeep, who leads the mission to flush out the terrorists at The Taj Mahal Palace hotel, Mumbai.

The 94-second video introduces us to Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan, a wounded soldier standing in the flames. His father asks, "What does it mean to be a soldier? For the love of the country?" and he replies that those who love the country are patriots and also explains his motive to protect these patriots, as a soldier.

We then see a montage in which Sandeep relentlessly tries to save the lives of the people in the face of the attacks and also unleashes a barrage of bullets on the miscreants.

The teaser also showcases a glimpse of Sandeep's love story with his classmate, played by Saiee Manjrekar. The video concludes when Sandeep's superior asks him if he needs a backup. To which he replies, "Don't come up, I will handle them."

The teaser of Major also introduces the characters of Sobhita Dhulipala, an NRI hostage, and Prakash Raj and Revathi, who played Sandeep's parents in the film.

Directed by Sashi Kiran Thikka, Major is slated for release on July 2 in Telugu, Hindi and Malayalam.
