If you are a fan of Drishyam like most Mohanlal and Ajay Devgn fans, Sony LIV now presents a series that is sure to pique your interest. Named Tabbar, the series constantly states 'only family matters' through both words and actions in its recently released teaser.

The first scene in Tabbar teaser sees Pavan Malhotra trying to get rid of a body while his wife, played by Supriya Pathak, watches with a scared and teary-eyed face.

See the teaser here:

We are then taken back to the times when the couple was happy living in a big city and visiting a gurudwara together.

The 52-second clip also shows shots of Pavan with two of his sons. Music plays an important part in this teaser. There is also a thunder effect which works well for the teaser, hinting at the impending thrill and horror. Apart from that, a dog barking, which is often considered a sign of bad luck, is also shown.

We see the actor checking his watch and igniting a fire on the mortal remains of a victim. He is also seen playing the piano.

The real scare comes with individual portraits of the artists. While Supriya is seen with blood on her hands, Ranvir Shorey gives a bland expression while Pavan is left in shock.

The last scene which combines wetting with blood, hinting at two murders, is quite a scene.

Tabbar, much like Drishyam, appears to be the story of a man of the house trying to cover up for his family's crime - murder. This time though, instead of a daughter, we have the wife in action.

Having seen what Supriya Pathak is capable of as an actor, the role suits her the best. However, whether the trailer will be able to tap more into the sin or give us more insight into the series, is something that is left to be seen in the Tabbar trailer.
