‘Trapped’ in ‘The Trap’ or a coincidence?

The much awaited Rajkummar Rao starrer Trapped is all set to hit the big screen. Rao’s promising acting skills and intriguing story line makes the trailer gripping, and leaves the viewer asking for more. While mystery is expected to be the main element of the movie, equally mysterious is the resemblance of the story plot of Vikramaditya Motwane’s Trapped and Kamasutra 3D’s director Rupesh Paul’s The Trap.

The film Trapped is about a man who is trapped in his own apartment and has to live inside it without food, water, electricity etc. The struggle to survive is what makes the film gripping.

The Trap features a girl who finds herself locked inside a dingy place and is unable to figure out how she ended up there. A horrific struggle along with thrill and mystery, The Trap has a promising trailer and is equally gripping as that of Rao’s.

This feature film stars Shravni Sahay who debuted in Nagesh Kukunoor's Maaya, Ye hai Aashiqui for UTV Bindaas and Mashaal for DD National. It also has Chirag Jani in the lead role along with Shravni. He played negative lead in the Puri Jagannath latest Telugu movie Rouge and in hindi movie Yahan Ameena Bikti Hai. He also played a major role in Surya's Anjan.

This uncanny resemblance of story plot leaves us wondering if it is a coincidence or not? Although Motwane has inculcated intricate details with Rajkummar’s acting skills taking it a step higher than the Rupesh’s The Trap, as the trailer lacks details but gives out the essence of being trapped in an effective manner.

The interesting fact is that the trailer of The Trap was launched four months ago but Trapped's was released just a month ago. So, is the resemblance between the two pure coincidence or just a slightly 'deliberate' act?

Rupesh’s flick being low budget will be launched on Vimeo on Demand on March 16 whereas big-budgeted Trapped will hit the big screen on March 17. Mysterious much?
