Earlier this evening (March 7), the official trailer of Salute was unveiled and it has caught the attention of the fans. The makers have played it low and grounded with the trailer, giving focus to the main conflict. From what we see, it looks like Salute will be an intense investigative cop thriller that will be driven more by content than action. The trailer shows good promise, making us eager to watch the film.
