Fear syndrome , eerie shocks , ingenuity, nail-biting, edgy etc are the words which I would have otherwise used !

\n

There are moments but far and few.  One would imagine to be gasping and heaving as the movie advances but that happens thanks to a very few occasions 

\n

Desperate situations call for extreme and adventurous measures and so has been rightfully depicted in the movie. But is it enough to make it engaging enough to spend the whole evening ??

\n

By the way , occupancy certificate has not been in place so the building remains unoccupied for two years. For those who have seen the trailer and have some questions in mind regarding the logic , you know now!

Vikramaditya Motwane belongs to the handful European cadre of directors who believe in minimalistic means. I hope they have other dynamics to justify the box office demands too.

\n

Now talking about commercials the cost and the production values may not be astoundingly high however the distributors and exhibitors both need to collect.

\n

Trapped is the story of a young Rao in Mumbai who gets locked inadvertently in a 35th floor 2 bhk. In the absence of food, water and electricity, 35 story above the ground, he struggles to remain alive through the several days that it takes him to figure out an escape route.

\n

The immediate reference of a desperate struggle of a single character can be  a Hollywood Cast away or The Martian though vividly different. (minus the rat and some other beings 'not' harmed during the shoot ) . The cinematography has been inspired by the RGV school with close shots depicting a desperate being and some of them eerie as well.

Trapped review from other sources

TimesOfIndia.com 3.5/5

However, 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’!

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.
