The trailer opens with a handcuffed Javed Iqbal walking towards the court. His voiceover in Punjabi describes his wicked plans on how the disappearance of 500 children in Lahore each year is no big deal because 1 lakh more children are born every year. This spine-chilling voiceover continues throughout the trailer and gives viewers a glimpse into Javed’s notorious mind.

Yasir who is playing the notorious killer has aced the performance as his appearance in every frame makes you feel uneasy. His expressions are sinister and atrocious, instilling fear and dread at the thought of the lives the actual killer has taken.
