A Thursday trailer out, film to release on February 17
The thriller stars Yami Gautam, Dimple Kapadia, Atul Kulkarni and Neha Dhupia
What happens when a cheerful kindergarten teacher draws a gun and holds the children hostage? A picture perfect day takes a nefarious turn as the perpetrator puts innocent lives at risk.
Disney+ Hotstar has released the trailer of A Thursday. Directed by Behzad Khambata, the hostage drama stars Yami Gautam Dhar. She is joined by Dimple Kapadia, Neha Dhupia, Atul Kulkarni and others.
The trailer begins at a kindergarten school, where Naina Jaiswal (Yami), the teacher, suddenly takes her students hostage. Why has Naina taken such a drastic step? Does she just want five crores, or has a bigger endgame? And what sort of a teacher threatens to kill children in alphabetical order ('really sorry, Aabeer, you're first')? The narrative is replete with doubts, twists and secretive schemes.
Talking about the film, Yami said, “I have never ever played such a distinct character like Naina! She projects so many diverse emotions. I have really put in a lot of effort to portray her in different shades. She is a teacher, who always looks after the children and she has taken them hostage, transforming her from a protector to a threat. That situation itself is so tense with multiple layers to it. A Thursday is an absolute roller coaster ride and I totally loved being a part of it!”
A Thursday is produced by RSVP Movies & Blue Monkey Films. It release on 17th February 17 on Disney+ Hotstar. It will also be available on Hulu.
