Critic reviews and ratings

  • ...is a brilliant film with a crisp narrative that will keep you glued till the last frame.

    Critic rating (?)

  • 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.

  • Director Vikramaditya Motwane deserves credit, not just for delivering on the construct, but for opening doors to filmmakers who will now dare to pitch a concept without worrying about the traditional yardsticks that govern the commerce of cinema.

    Critic rating (?)

  • 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.

    Critic rating (?)

  • Audaciously enough, Motwane feeds off the negativity of disastrous coincidences to explore a human being’s most profound fears as well as marvel at his dormant instincts.

  • More than a good film, Vikramaditya Motwane has made a very intelligent one.

    Critic rating (?)

  • Vikramaditya Motwane’s brilliance lies in turning this unsuspecting setup into a hellish playground.

    69

    Critic rating (?)

  • The film is compelling but it could have been more cleverly plotted, though, having said that, I wonder if that would have gotten in the way of how audiences relate to the everyman aspect of the horror.

    69

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...do watch Trapped for its artistic audacity, if nothing else.

    69

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...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.

    69

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...meticulously written and directed...

    69

    Critic rating (?)

  • Director Vikramaditya Motwane gives Bollywood a fantastic albeit loopholed survival thriller in Trapped.

    69

    Critic rating (?)

  • Time games, inventive soundscapes, Rajkummar Rao: there’s lots to love in ‘Trapped’.

    69

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is a wholly involving drama that you become quickly invested in. The bulk of the credit for that goes to the film’s incredible leading man who delivers his finest work here.

    69

    Critic rating (?)

  • With him the film takes the audience to the edge of the seat and also makes it face its own weaknesses and resourcefulness in crises.

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • Even at a 100-something minutes, Trapped feels a tad stretched, but Rajkummar Rao ensures that the film is never less than watchable.

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • Given Motwane’s skills at creating emotions, and Rao’s ability to channel them, Trapped doesn’t take us as far over the edge it could, or should have.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...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.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...the film is unable to maintain those interest levels through its 102 minutes and 56 seconds running time. This promising premise combined with the formidable talents of Vikramaditya Motwane and Rajkummar Rao should have added up to much more.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is a disappointing film from a good director. What surprises you is the mismatch between a subject and the natural style of Vikramaditya Motwane.
