Movie review: Vikramaditya Motwane's film `Trapped' is vocal too
'Trapped' – it's a statement. Trapped into a puzzle. Trapped confoundedly in mediocrity of the socio-economic spider-web. If you are going to a multiplex looking for a hardcore masala entertainer then `Trapped' would be a wrong choice straight away.

Because, initially it should be kept on mind that you are there to view a Vikramaditya Motwane film, who has earlier made movies like 'Udaan' and 'Lootera'. This time too, he maintains his track record by perfectly sticking to the genre he's best known for.

This time Motwane tells us an hour and 40 minutes-long gripping tale, where a confused lover accidentally locks himself up inside his newly rented Mumbai apartment. Trapped is a survival thriller which was shot in Mumbai in less than a month in 2016.

With Rajkummar Rao in the lead role who has earlier portrayed characters like Govind Patel, Shahid Azmi, Deepak Singh and Deepu Sebastian in 'Kai Po Che', 'Shahid', 'Citylights' and 'Aligarh' respectively, it was pretty natural that Shaurya (name of his character) of 'Trapped' will turn out be a stellar performance. As expected, the talented actor eases into the character very well. Geetanjali Thapa plays the character of Shaurya's love interest Noorie in the film, but unfortunately her character has little scope, however, she supports well with whatever she has been provided with, exhibiting her acting prowess.

Editing of film is superb. This time Dipika Kalra has not edited the film like last couple of times but his replacement Nitin Baid has done a commendable job.

Music has been composed by Alokananda Dasgupta, who is also a classical pianist and had earlier scored the tune for Ajay Bahl's debut film 'B.A. Pass'. Alokananda is the daughter of legendary film maker Buddhadeb Dasgupta.

In conclusion, on a serious note it can be surely said that 'Trapped' deserves a must watch tag for the audiences who are in pursuit of some realistic cinema.
