She hesitantly starts to go up to investigate but soon gives up. Desperate for food, Shaurya resorts to eating cockroaches , ants and pigeons and also starts talking to a rat for company. To his relief, it rains heavily after some days, and Shaurya collects as much water as possible in empty containers. He manages to survive for almost a week, but his health deteriorates due to starvation, dehydration and isolation.

In a final, desperate attempt to escape, Shaurya begins sawing through the balcony gate with a metal sheet, and ultimately succeeds. He climbs down five floors, almost falling off many times due to exhaustion, before managing to reach a floor which has no balcony gates and finally escapes the building.

Fainting due to weakness and fatigue, he is rushed to the hospital. A week later, he is visited by Noorie, who reveals that she is now married since she thought that he had abandoned her. Heartbroken and traumatised by the incident, Shaurya tries to return to his normal life, but he is shattered to see that his friends and colleagues had not even noticed his absence, as they are all too busy with their own lives. Trapped originated from the first-time screenwriter Amit Joshi, who had left his job in a telecommunications company to write full-time.

Joshi found the situation for the film when he was auto-locked inside his flat for half an hour in Goregaon , Mumbai. He received a synopsis for a film from Joshi that he found "really interesting". Mehta and Joshi worked for the next few months on the script and turned the page draft into forty pages. Motwane mentioned in an interview that the film's development, right from the time he got the e-mail to the start of the shoot, took four to five months to be completed.

After discussing the film with Rajkummar Rao , Motwane cast him, believing he had an "interesting vulnerability" and a "never-say-die attitude". His crew recced more than twenty buildings in the city when one of his assistant directors was walking around in Prabhadevi and saw an abandoned thirty- storey building that had not got an occupancy certificate. The crew would climb five floors every day with equipment, and on several occasions the elevator did not function, leading them to climb all thirty floors.

Motwane has a fear of mice , and as a result had characters of mice in the film which he felt was a "good opportunity" to get over his fear. The film was shot in chronological order in twenty days. He also decided to not go for a wide screen aspect ratio and rather opted for a more compressed look because of the nature of the film, as he wanted to create a claustrophobic feel.

When his film Bhavesh Joshi did not work out, he asked Rao if he could spare twenty days in the following month for Trapped , to which he agreed.

He said, "Once I figured out how he is, the rest was organic. Of course, how Shaurya would behave on the tenth day wasn't discovered until I actually did it. Rao found the role of Shaurya to be one of his most challenging works to date.

This hasty way of film-making made Motwane feel like it was a student project. Vikramaditya Motwane said in an interview that he was attracted by the film's theme of urban loneliness. The lead character, Shaurya, is an immigrant in the city and has an anonymous job. He is a loner with no friend or family to come looking for him if he goes missing. According to Uday Bhatia of Mint , all of Motwane's films are about individuals who are trapped in various ways by their life choices and social stations. The film's soundtrack album and background score were composed by Alokananda Dasgupta , with lyrics by Rajeshwari Dasgupta.

The album generally received a positive response. Devansh Sharma of Firstpost wrote about the song "Dheemi", which was voiced by Tejas Menon, "[it] explores the familiar zone of falling in love slowly and surely. But it differs from its predecessors in terms of the freshness it brings to the ears. That's not to say that the song doesn't have shades of gloom and melancholy. In the end, the title was kept. The poster featured Rao trapped in a balcony with his clothes displaying the word 'help'.

It remains a personal story, more like a leaf out of Shaurya's life than a cinematic celebration of a survivor. Masand included it in his "best film list" of Writing for NDTV , Raja Sen found it "compelling" but mentioned that the struggle shown in the film was "too linear and predictable".

    Jha praised Rao's performance and wrote: Overall, Trapped is a brilliant film with a crisp narrative that will keep you glued till the last frame. She wrote, " Trapped is one of those films taken to another level only on the strength of a powerhouse performance, and Rajkummar Rao will be remembered for this one for a long, long time.

    Archived from the original on 8 January Retrieved 8 January Last I remember I saw such a setting in 'Kaun' starring Urmila. No one can review Trapped without praising Rajkummar Rao. He has given a marvelous performance. He brought the perfect amount of hysteria in his voice when needed. It will make you pity the character and pray that he makes it out safely.

    Personally, I would say that it was even better than what we saw in 'Shahid', those of us who have seen 'Shahid' know that Rao set a high bar in that one. In just 1 hour 45 minutes, the movie boldly presents before us what a person will do when something like this happens, without actually caring if some of the scenes can be too much for some of the audience. Trapped is certainly worth a watch. You will feel like you are watching a film which is no way lesser in any aspects than any Hollywood survival movie, which we always say, "are so much better than Bollywood movies" Well, maybe not anymore!

    Trivia When director Vikramaditya Motwane read the script for the movie, he immediately knew that actor Rajkummar Rao would be a perfect fit for the role of Shaurya. Goofs While the protagonist spends a incredible amount of time trying to open the door via breaking off the door handle and trying to jimmy the key entry point with various tools when tying to escape, he does not even attempt to remove the butt hinge on the door, which could easily be dismantled with what he had available to him.

    Especially in a new building. Older versions can rust and jam over time or with various coats of paint, but the ones visible on the doors were new and would have easily come apart. Add the first question. Was this review helpful to you?
