Did You Know?

Trapped is Vikramaditya Motwane's third feature film directorial venture. His first film Udaan was selected to compete in the 'Un Certain Regard' category at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival.See more »
Plot holes: 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.See more »

A must watch not to be missed thriller., 19 March 2017
Author: Aatir khan from NEW DELHI

we all Can do things we otherwise Wont even think of, only if we are tested under right circumstances. initially after trying everything that every human in his situation would do and even much more, he gives up hope but only after beautiful sign from his GOD he realize that his life is worth living and he cannot waste it , and that was the ONLY motivation he had throughout the story that was dividing the often bleak line between his life and death. And now as i have seen it i don't think anyone could have embodied Shaurya better than Rajkummar who did an amazing job of playing a guy who met his real self in the face of his 'worst nightmare' .

STORY : 10/10 SCREENPLAY AND DIRECTION : 10/10 PERFORMANCE : 10/10 PRODUCTION: movie did a great job of sticking the story to the point and cutting all the unnecessary cost of production. music was commendable.

other than that personally i felt movie also had a tone of modern hi-rise culture under which people have lost the real connection and empathy for others and also as we do not realize how alone and 'TRAPPED' we are until things turn for worse.
