India’s first homegrown sci-fi spaceship film Cargo directed by Arati Kadav is making waves ever since its first look came out.
Makers now shared the teaser of the film that is set on a spaceship. The dystopian drama has been officially selected for screening at the MAMI Mumbai Film Festival.
The 58-second-teaser of the film delves into a territory not explored before in Hindi cinema.
Starring Vikrant Massey and Shweta Tripathi in leading roles, the film takes the audience on a journey with Prahastha (Massey) who plays a demon operating the Post Death Transition services on a space station orbiting Earth with his astronaut colleague, played by Tripathi.
Kadav is known for her work in the sci-fi genre and has previously won accolades for her shorts Time Machine and Raavan.
A story that plays with human emotions and Indian culture set in a quirky whimsical landscape of after-life in space at its core, Cargo looks like something fresh off the bandwagon.
The film has been produced by Shlok Sharma, Anurag Kashyap, Navin Shetty, and Arati Kadav.
Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh also announced the new project’s details on social media.
He wrote on his official Twitter handle, “Teaser of science fiction film #Cargo… Stars Vikrant Massey and Shweta Tripathi… Directed by Arati Kadav… Produced by Navin Shetty, Shlok Sharma, Arati Kadav and Anurag Kashyap.”
