Missing is a psychological thriller movie written and directed by Mukul Abhyankar and produced by Shital Bhatia, Shabana Raza Bajpayee, Vikram Malhotra, Shri Adhikari Brothers, Anand Pandit & Roopa Pandit and starring Tabu, Manoj Bajpayee and Annu Kapoor in the lead roles.
The trailer of the movie is recently being out and it is scheduled to release on April 6, 2018, clashing with Irrfan Khan starrer “Blackmail”. It involves a cop (Annu Kapoor) investigating a kidnapping case by shooting all the tough questions at the parents (Tabu and Manoj Bajpayee) who are playing Mr. and Mrs. Dubey. Their daughter Titli gets kidnapped when her parents are busy making out in another room. But does love actually dominate their equation? Kapoor’s character does not think so. He considers everyone a suspect, including the mother, the father and the third wheel that may very well be the brains behind the kidnapping.
The idea of the abduction of a toddler is heart-wrenching. To sauce it up with an extra-marital affair of her father (as the closing moments of the trailer hints at) comes as an unpleasant development. But to jump to a conclusion before the film actually unfolds before us would be an injustice to the writer and the director. Given that it boasts of an ensemble cast of seasoned actors like Annu Kapoor, Tabu, and Manoj Bajpayee, one can only hope they populate the movie because of the script’s potential.
The first trailer of the movie set the pace for a gripping thriller in which Tabu and Manoj Bajpayee playing the characters of Mr. and Mrs. Dubey who are searching for their 3-year-old daughter “Titli”. The trailer shows the couple holidaying in a resort, who later find that their daughter is missing. Then, they hire a tough investigating officer, Annu Kapoor, who looks convinced enough that there’s something fishy about the father of the child (Manoj Bajpayee). As Kapoor in one of the scenes says that the reaction of the mother was obvious, but there was something suspicious about the father’s behavior. Annu Kapoor keeps everyone under suspicion, and also feels that there is someone who has most probably abducted the child. What comes around the end of the trailer is the probably an extramarital affair angle where a woman looks like linked to the father. Amid the gritty thriller, all the three actors look in top form and create a sense of gripping story among the audience.
Missing is slated to release on April 6, 2018, along with Abinay Deo’s black comedy “Blackmail”, so, all the Friday Fans, do watch this psychological gripping thriller movie coming to you next month.
