Have you ever imagined how would it feel to be locked up inside your own house? End up fighting your mental demon? Well, if you don’t feel disturbed at the end of watching Rajkumar Rao’s Trapped, it is a failure for the film. Even if it evokes a sense of helplessness in you and yet you are glued to it, the film gets your thumbs up.
Trapped starts by establishing a usual man, Shaurye who does his 9 to 5 job and is happy in his small little world that also includes his colleague who is now the love of his life. He wants to marry Noorie but not without having his own house. Shaurye sets on a hunt for a suitable house but settled for one which is quite a weird one. Something is not right with the flat that this man has chosen but his urgency doesn’t let him think beyond. What then rolls on is a terrific journey of a man and his fight with his loneliness.
Apart from showing the repercussions of living in oddly designed circumstances by the destiny, Trapped highlights the real fight within. It shows how is it to be a person who has nothing but his own self to love, argue, lose and hate. How would you deal with a mind that can only think about the difficulties you are in? How would you deal with the eyes that can only see the four walls of your room?
Trapped is also an example of how one makes a small budget film with a highly gripping story. Shaurye is trapped and the viewers sympathise with the character. If you could, you would help him get out of this unfortunate situation.
