    It’s hard to imagine Trapped working so effectively withoutRajkummar Rao. He lives every second of Shourya’s struggle for self-preservation.His journey is so illustrative of a migrant’s metropolitan melancholy as to make any attempt to add signboards to the storytelling is akin to shining torchlight to supplement sunlight.

    Trapped breaks the barrier for winning hearts with its content. It is so difficult for the reviewer to find a flaw. Overall, Trapped is a brilliant film with a crisp narrative that will keep you glued till the last frame.

    Trapped mocks the invincibility we assume to have acquired as residents of this magical city by painting Mumbai as a distant, dark and depressing land taken over by concrete zombies. Where everything that one craves in Mumbai — space, privacy, view, trees or people minding their own business — seem like a curse.Trapped is not an easy film to stomach.

    Certainly not for the weak hearted, weak stomachs and entertainment hungry souls of Bollywood, TRAPPED is a triumph in Bollywood’s claustrophobic thriller genre that is masterly crafted by Vikramaditya Motwane and brilliantly acted by Rajkummar Rao. If you want to get rid from the ‘trap’ of the routine Bollywood thrills and have the appetite to try something different and new then get ‘TRAPPED’ at your nearest screens.

    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.

    Trapped is a defining film for Motwane who has become braver in using small spaces and silence. It’s the beginning of a style that we must see in his next films.

    Vikramaditya Motwane’s ingenuous new film, Trapped, exploits this detachedness the city gets off on, simply by taking the island metaphor further

    …given the nature of the story, ‘Trapped’ does test your patience after a while. You also doubt the protagonist’s intelligence and sanity. Why would you rent a flat from a dubious agent, in an empty building? A few occurrences seem implausible. How come even fire doesn’t draw any attention? Nonetheless, the mounting tension makes you overlook these flaws and a bloated run time. ‘SH** happens’!

    The runtime of the film works in its favour. In less than 2 hours, your patience levels are fine. The absence of songs makes sure the pace of Trapped is not hampered.Watch Trapped this week. Be thankful that you have the option of opening a door and getting out. And make sure you double-check the locks before that door shuts and you’re, well, you know.

    Vikramaditya Motwane could have refrained from the Castaway inspired romantic conflict in the third act. While it doesn’t make the film any less effective, the same situation could’ve been used to convey grittier emotions. But the few inconsequential slip ups aside, Trapped is a film that pulls you into the void of fear and despair with remarkable ease. It’s a thriller compels you to think, analyse and pray. This is an intimate affair with the scarier prospects of a lonesome life in a big city. Insightful and effective, Trapped is a must watch for all movie buffs.

    Trapped is a unique and engaging thriller, bolstered by a fine performance by Rajkummar Rao. It might not appeal to frontbenchers with a taste of commercial cinema, but for those who want something different from Bollywood, Trapped is recommended watch for you, albeit a bold and uneasy one.

    Trapped engages. But, other than that you are looking out to escape the disgust.

    If you are in the mood for a no-frills thriller, then be sure to give Rao’s Trapped a shot. You will not feel like you are caught in a terrible movie.

    Trapped promises a brilliant performance by Rajkummar Rao. This engaging tale is not everyone’s cup of tea. Watch it for the love of survival dramas.

    ‘Trapped’ is like getting strangled in an urban jungle with fine performance and a unique theme catering to good cinema lovers.

    Allow yourself to get ‘trapped’ in Shaurya aka Rajkummar Rao’s world if you are seeking for something way different from the regular popcorn entertainers. This one needs a viewing purely for Rao’s stellar act.

    The trouble with Rajkummar Rao’s Trapped is that it is uneven. There are not enough genuinely scary heart-in-mouth moments. His despair stays on the surface when we want to see the soul.

    It is one thing to avoid high-pitched melodrama, but quite another to allow your film to lapse into complete lack of energy. Trapped has a promising premise and is interesting to begin with, but is unable to maintain those interest levels through its 102 minutes and 56 seconds running time.

    Trapped is a typical festival film, which has its moments but is tiresome to watch and makes you wonder if it would have been better as a short film.

    “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.

    Trapped is a 180-degree turn from the fevered romanticism of Lootera, but Motwane’s control over narrative doesn’t seem at all affected by the change of genre. In Rao, he has exactly the right actor for this kind of film: relatable enough to pass for an urban everyman, and talented enough to keep one’s attention for 105 minutes.
