DIAL 100 TO SCARE YOU : A sneak into the Manoj Bajpai Neena Gupta film

 

Manoj Bajpai and Neena Gupta starrer “ Dial 100” trailer is out with a bang. Viewers are struck awe after watching the trailer and rave reviews are coming across the industry and digital platforms. Going by the trailer, Manoj’s Nikhil Sood begins his shift in the control room just like any other day. And he ends up taking a call that gives him the creeps.

As he struggles to make sense of the strange nature of the call, he finds himself right in the middle of a sticky situation. It is a high stake life-and-death situation. His wife and son have been taken hostage by a troubled woman, played by Neena Gupta, who seems to be acting out of deep despair. Neena’s character Seema Palwa has lost her child and she, for some reason, holds the call operator responsible for her personal tragedy.

The trailer suggests a plot setup similar to the widely acclaimed 2013  American psychological crime thriller , “The Call” which had brilliant performance by Hollywood actress Halley Berry. In the Halley Berry film, a teenage girl is kidnapped by a serial killer and Halley Berry, a 911 emergency phone operator, still suffering emotionally from a prior botched up call,  receives the teenager’s panic ridden call.

Talking about Dial 100, Manoj Bajpayee said in a statement, “It’s a unique film with lots of twists and turns which will engage the audience till the end. I am feeling quite kicked about the fact that the announcement itself has generated so much interest and excitement. Dial 100 was an experience for me, and I am sure that the audience will have the same feeling after watching it.” Dial 100 is directed by Rensil D’Silva and produced by Sony Pictures. Apart from Manoj Bajpai and Neena Gupta the film also has Sakshi Tanwar also in the cast. The film will premiere on 6 August 2021 on ZEE5 .
