What the Ra.One 30-second teaser tells us

Not too much, honestly. Unlike the 10-seconder which was packed with loads of potential spoilers, this one is a lot more straightforward, mostly showing Shah Rukh Khan doing varied mid-air kalabaazi.

The music kicks in and we see Khan zooming past between two trains. "This Diwali," the promo says before Khan, wearing armour (or perhaps the robotic version of Khan) falls to the floor of a room, the ground shattering with the impact. Then we see him flying towards a standing vehicle.

He" -- Khan does mid-air somersaults up the side of a building -- "Is the only" -- another fall down the side of a highrise, but a much more graceful fall, think Mission:Impossible -- "Protector" -- amid video-game dhishoom sounds Khan does a Magneto and flips cars all over the place; tuxedoed Khan leaps from within the trains; and, in an unrelated shot, armoured Khan lands on the hood of a car with a shattered windshield.

Khan looks inside and a female hand caresses his cheek.

Then, to the sound of his growling "I'm on," we see the shot the 10-seconder ended with, him standing next to a falling car.

Now having looked at both trailers, first impressions are that the film does indeed look seriously slick. Khan himself -- especially minus the armour -- who we got more blink-and-miss glimpses of in the ten-seconder, looks fitter, smarter (almost shinier) than we've seen him in a long time. He looks primed for action.

The effects look good and the whole vaulting up the side of a building is definitely quite something. There is, as pointed out yesterday concern about how original a superhero movie this will be, but if the whole film looks as good as the teaser and Khan pushes it on Diwali, there's a bumper opening ripe for the recordbooks.
