The trailer showcases Yami Gautam as a brave crime reporter who is persistently searching for the truth behind the sudden disappearance of a young theatre activist. The film is a quest for answers on what’s right versus what’s the ultimate truth.
Director Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury said, “True life events inspire me to tell different stories and LOST was conceptualized the same way. The movie will make you question, introspect, and tug at your heartstrings. I am extremely happy with the performances of all my actors Pankaj Kapoor ji, Pia Bajpayee, Rahul Khanna, Tushar Pandey and of course Yami Gautam. Yami has portrayed the character of an investigative journalist with a lot of modesty. In fact, portrayal of all characters in the film have been extremely authentic and credible. I am very glad that Zee Studios, Namah Pictures, Sam Fernandes, Indrani Mukherjee and ZEE5 have come together to showcase the journey of a crime report with the hope that audience will realise that everything heard or seen is not always the truth. We can’t wait to see audiences’ reaction to the film.”
Speaking about the film, producer Shareen Mantri Kedia of Namah Pictures said, “We, at Namah Pictures, love to tell stories that engage, entertain and inspire. “LOST’ was one such incredible story that was waiting to be told. The amazing team of actors and technicians made the journey of bringing this film to the audiences even more exciting.
Yami Gautam Dhar, said “I am excited that the film is finally releasing, and the audiences will get to see a character which is so close to my heart. It is an ode to many journalists who go to great lengths in search of the truth while also walking that fine line which threads the very integrity of media & humanity! The movie represents a higher quest and a search for lost values of empathy while raising the right questions. Whoever has watched the film so far, had a very positive and overwhelming response to it, so I am eagerly waiting for the release now, to see how the audiences enjoy the film.”.
Pankaj Kapur added, “LOST is story about the struggles and repercussions the crime reporters have to go through. Portraying the role of a crime reporter’s grandfather was invigorating as it took me closer to the challenges, they face day in day out. But the beauty of the character is the warmth and the bond he shares with his granddaughter (Yami) and becomes her source of continuous strength and resilience. I am delighted that the movie is releasing on ZEE5 and will reach a wider audience.”
Rahul Khanna commented, “LOST has a powerful narrative and nuanced characters. My role is unexpected, and I had a unique experience working with Aniruddha and his team. With ZEE5, the film will not only reach the correct audience, but also a global one.”
‘LOST’ will exclusively premiere on ZEE5 on 16th February
