The makers of Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain have released a gripping trailer of the social thriller based on the Bhopal Gas Tragedy. One of the biggest chemical disasters of all time, the Bhopal Gas Tragedy has been shrouded in controversy ever since it happened on the night of December 3, 1984 and the film tries to recreate the events that led to the catastrophe.
The trailer of Bhopal: A Prayer For Rain holds an elusive promise that the film will tell the untold story of what actually happened that night. As locals welcome the pesticide plant Union Carbide Corporation plans to setup in their city, an Indian journalist begins his informed struggle against this move. A lifestyle journalist from abroad tries to help him raise his voice against the potential threat of having a pesticide plant setup in a densely populated area. However, their effort fails and the factory continues to spew poison in the heart of Bhopal.
The film showcases an international star cast, with Martin Sheen, Kal Penn and Mischa Barton playing prominent roles – a first for any Indian film. Martin Sheen plays the part of Union Carbide Corporation’s CEO Warren Anderson. Mischa Barton is a foreign based lifestyle reporter who tries to help an Indian journalist played by Kal Penn to raise a voice against the dangers of having a pesticide plant at the heart of a city. Rajpal Yadav and Tannishtha Chatterjee represent the unfortunate local people in Bhopal: A Prayer For Rain.
Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain, directed by Ravi Kumar and produced by Sahara Movie Studios and Rising Star Entertainment will release in India and abroad on 5th Dec, 2014.
