The makers of Dial 100 have described the show in these words: “One night, one call, can change your lives. Expect the unexpected with Dial 100.” And honestly one really is counting on that tagline considering that the entire show seems to have been revealed in the trailer which is a quarter shy of 3 minutes long. The only thing left for the audiences to find out is if Manoj Bajpayee is able to save his loved ones. Having said, the trailer is engaging and intriguing.
Bajpayee plays Nikhil Sood, a cop stationed at an emergency helpline centre, who receives a call from a woman sobbing on the helpline but she isn’t looking for help. Instead it is revenge that she seeks. And it’s all laid out against the backdrop of time.
It’s Bajpayee versus Neena Gupta (playing Seema Pallav) , the woman who kidnaps his wife Prerna (Sakshi Tanwar) & takes her as a hostage as she demands justice for the wrongs she and her middle class family suffered at the hands of the system.
Dial 100 has been directed by Rensil D’Silva, presented by Sony Pictures Films India and produced in association with Alchemy films.
The show will premiere on ZEE5 on 6th August. Catch the trailer for Dial 100 here –
