Trapped is a Hindi-language Indian film directed by Vikramaditya Motwane. The film, a survival thriller, stars Rajkummar Rao, whose character is shut in a Mumbai apartment.

“Trapped” focuses on one man’s battle for survival. He is not on a betrayed island (‘Cast Away’) or a disconnected gully (‘127 Hours’) or a sea (‘Life of Pi’) however in a Mumbai apartment, appropriate amidst a swarmed road.

“Shaurya” (Rajkummar Rao) must cull up the “fearlessness” (play on words planned) to remain alive after he incidentally secures himself up his new leased flat in a devastate Mumbai skyscraper, for just about seven days. To compound the situation, his telephone battery kicks the bucket and since the building is without inhabitants, power and water or sustenance supply, Shaurya must take extraordinary measures to survive this sudden bad dream.
