Madhur Bhandarkar’s directorial venture, “India Lockdown” trailer is out on Thursday. A film will revive your memories of this drastic phase when a sudden lockdown was imposed in the wake of COVID-19. The film is going to send shivers down your spine as the whole scenario of the lockdown surfaces before our eyes.
The story revolves around four characters and all they have to face and undergo in those 21 days of lockdown. The movie recreated the chaos and horrors penned aptly and beautifully by Amit Joshi and Aradhana Shah.
The movie makes us remember the time when we all were trying to come to terms with the situation and get our life back on track. We were witness to the silence around us, with empty roads, people with masks and authorities in PPE kits. Visuals of the people facing COVID-19 and the situation they faced keep on appearing on Television sets and social media channels like their worst dreams.
Through the movie, we will again get to witness the horrifying visuals of migrant workers with their children walking miles to reach their homes. Many people had lost their Jobs, and nobody ever thought of how sex workers would be surviving as their streets got empty. The film narrates the traumatic tales of humans that suddenly changed.
It is a thought-provoking movie, and why not as incidents suddenly happen and life gets into jeopardy. All around there was chaos, yet there was also hope and courage.
