Ziprya trailer: Appeal of gritty story lost due to overdose of slaps, chases and trains


Debutant director Kedar Vaidya's film is based on late author Arun Sadhu's Marathi novel of the same name.

Debutant director Kedar Vaidya’s Ziprya explores the dark underbelly of Mumbai. The film revolves around street urchins and the life of crime that defines them.

But the trailer of the film, which was recently released, goes overboard showcasing the disturbing and troublesome life they lead. An overdose of slaps, chase sequences and Mumbai’s local trains are generously strewn around. In fact, the many slap sequences in the trailer itself make you wonder how many the film would have.

Better editing could have made the trailer interesting. The film’s teaser was also unappealing. As the scenes are repetitive, it would have been a good idea to shorten the trailer’s length of three minutes.

Coming to the positive points, it looks like the film is shot realistically and boasts of some good camerawork. Chinmay Kambli, Amruta Subhash and Prathamesh Parab seem to have delivered high quality performances.

Ziprya is based on late author Arun Sadhu’s Marathi novel of the same name. It tells the story of Ziprya (Kambli), who works as a shoeshine boy at a railway station in Mumbai. He gets involved in the world of crime because of the company he keeps. This worsens his relationship with his elder sister (Subhash).

Ziprya will be released on 22 June.
