After a long wait, the trailer of the much-anticipated Tollywood movie Vakeel Saab starring Pawan Kalyan in the lead was released on Monday. Sharing the trailer on Twitter, the film’s production company Sri Venkateswara Creations wrote, “Ultimately Justice will win when you’ve the right person on your side.”

Promising a powerful and gripping legal thriller, the trailer features excerpts from the courtroom where we see Pawan Kalyan representing the movie’s three female leads while Prakash Raj is seen as the opposing counsel. Different versions of an incident are presented by both sides. Prakash Raj is seen presenting arguments that indulge in character assassination of the three women and accusing them of harming the accused men, while Pawan Kalyan tries to prove otherwise. The two minute and nine seconds long trailer also has action sequences where Pawan Kalyan is seen taking down some goons.
