A thriller that captures a young man's desperate attempts to escape from the isolation of an apartment in the heart of Mumbai.

On the brink of getting married and beginning a new life, Shaurya believes he has found the ideal home for himself and his bride-to-be. In a strange turn of events, Shaurya finds himself locked inside of this apartment. He is unable to escape this prison floating above the chaos of the rest of the city. With nothing but bare essentials, fast running out of food, water and connectivity, Shaurya's dream home transforms into a nightmarish trap.

Battling the demons of his past, the circumstances of the present and the seemingly insurmountable odds that are destined to test his immediate future, Shaurya becomes our vehicle for viewing humanity at both its frailest and strongest.
Verdict: Rajkummar Rao shines as the solo hero of this survival drama. It is said that the most populated cities have the loneliest people residing there. Trapped somehow proves this statement and reveals how mechanical and mundane lives are in the city that never sleeps. After the terrific period romance drama Lootera, Vikramaditya Motwane is []... ...Read full review

But Trapped builds a premise that engulfs this situation with sufficient dread and keeps one desperate, fearful and yet hopeful for the films lead even as things deteriorate progressively with every passing scene. ...Read full review
That `Trapped` manages to grippingly hold your attention with such an underwhelming setting is an achievement in itself. That it could invade your senses makes it worth every minute, without any break, in the theatre. ...Read full review
Something that blew my mind when I first moved to Bombay over a dozen years ago was the fact that alcohol is home-delivered. Everything, in fact, is delivered to the doorstep, at all times of day and night, and you can go months on end without leaving the house - if that`s what you want. Man might not be an island, but this particular island city specialises in letting you create your own self-sufficient bubble.Vikramaditya Motwane`s ingenuous new film, Trapped, exploits this detachedness the city gets off on, simply by taking the island metaphor further. This claustrophobic little film is the story of a man realistically locked inside a high-rise apartment, and - in form and structure - this is a survivalist film, a genre primarily made up of singular protagonists marooned on deserted islands. ...Read full review
From his debut in Dibakar Banerjees Love Sex Aur Dhokha, in which he played a misguided shop attendant who makes a sex tape with an unsuspecting young woman and sells it to get out of a debt, to his role as a poor migrant in City Lights who turns to desperate measures to provide a better life for his family, Rajkummar Rao has brought nuance and layers and unmistakable grace to the various iterations of the `everyman` that he has built his career playing. Few actors have revealed such a gift for taking categorically nondescript men and turning them into memorable characters. ...Read full review
