Flickering tube lights, blazing gunfire, multiple explosions, debris, bleeding patients gasping for air – they can all be found in the trailer of ‘Mumbai Diaries 26/11’.
Historic events are repeated several times on the screen and they work to not only remind the viewers of the horrors of 26/11 but also aids in remembering the many who lost their lives in the attacks. The tragic 26/11 Mumbai attacks have been the subject for several films and series, each focusing on different angles, stories and aspects. ‘Mumbai Diaries 26/11’ focuses on the workings of a hospital dealing with the casualties of a city under terrorist attacks.
Actors Konkona Sen Sharma, Mohit Raina, Satyajeet Dubey, Tina Desai, Shreya Dhanwanthary, Mrunmayee Deshpande, Natasha Bharadwaj, and Prakash Belawadi, among others, star in the show.
Mohit plays a senior doctor who is assigned a group of young trainees on the day of the unfortunate attacks & they must now step up and take unimaginable responsibility even if it’s their first day. Although the series revolves around the doctors, nurses and paramedics, the trailer gives you a bit of everything – from the terrorists speeding on the roads of Bombay to the police officers putting their lives on the line to catch them.
Intertwined are the roles of journalists and people fearing the loss of their loved ones. Apart from the thrilling background score that adds to the horrors of the screen, what stands out is the reflection on the dilemma doctors face when they have to choose “the human body” over “the human character” as they treat victims and terrorists alike.
Created by Nikkhil Advani & Emmay Entertainment and directed by Nikkhil Advani & Nikhil Gonsalves, ‘Mumbai Diaries 26/11’ begins streaming from September 9 on Amazon Prime Video.
