Direction of the film:
With Trapped, director Vikramaditya Motwane proves yet again his craft of realistic filmmaking. He made the Trapped character look so convincing that you will feel the pain of being stuck alone. According to the script’s demand, Motwani done justice his work.
The whole film is on the shoulders of Shaurya i.e. Rajkumar Rao. Undoubtedly, this ranks as one of his best performances among others like ‘Shahid’, ‘Queen’ and ‘Citylights’. In a 35th floors flat in an uninhabited apartment, Shaurya have nothing to eat, no water to drink, in such circumstances, the role of an innocent person who has zeal to live is played by Rao is very well.
Geetanjali Thapa is good in her cameo role.

Overall, Trapped is a brilliant film with a crisp narrative that will keep you glued till the last frame. If you are fond of seeing something new and different then you may love the movie.
