Vikrant Massey gets entangled in a series of difficult but hilarious situations over the course of a stormy night after finding a car filled with smuggled gold and cash in the latest trailer of Devang Shashin Bhavsar’s upcoming black-comedy film Blackout, also featuring Mouni Roy and Sunil Grover.

Dropped by production house JioStudios on Thursday, the two-minute-40-second-long trailer, depicting events spanning a chaotic night, opens with a city-wide blackout. A storm rages outside as Vikrant struggles to drive his car amidst incessant rainfall and a power outage that impairs visibility.


Suddenly, his car crashes into a vehicle filled with smuggled gold and cash. Succumbing to greed, Vikrant loots the valuables, feeling a rush of excitement as he drives away. His car is soon halted by a drunken Sunil Grover, who appears menacing in a beanie, long hair and a silver locket. Sunil demands money and exotic wine as he gets into the car.

The following scenes show Vikrant in a graveyard, where he encounters Saurabh Ghadge and Karan Sonawane, who offer to help him for money. They are later stopped by a police officer who asks if they are carrying explosives. A completely drunk Sunil replies, “Bomb nahi laash hai humare pass (We don’t have a bomb but we have a dead body).”

Sunil, Saurabh and Karan are then seen partying in a club while a frustrated Vikrant exclaims, “Tum teen world class pagal mere sir pe aake kyu baithe ho (Why are you three crazy people tormenting me)?”

The quartet is later joined by Mouni Roy, who asks for a lift on this turbulent night. Subsequent clips show a police pursuit with Sunil shooting at the police vehicle. Vikrant and his gang navigate winding roads as a photographer (played by Jisshu Sengupta) takes their pictures and later points a gun at them.

Vikrant curses his fate and finds himself trapped in a warehouse, fighting for his life alongside Mouni Roy, as explosions rock the area and bullets fly from all directions.

The trailer also features All We Imagine as Light star Chhaya Kadam and Ruhani Sharma.

Produced by Jyoti Deshpande and Niraj Kothari, Blackout is slated to stream on JioCinema from June 7.
