The trailer for Vivek Agnihotri’s The Vaccine War, dropped on Tuesday, gives us a glimpse into the lives of a set of Indian scientists who raced against time to come up with the country’s own COVID-19 vaccine in the face of media criticism.
The three-minute-long trailer introduces Nana Patekar’s character who leads a group of scientists engaged in developing the vaccine, which would be known as Covaxin, as part of a top-secret project. Pitted against him is Raima Sen’s journalist who believes that India wouldn’t be able to come up with the vaccine.
As the trailer unfolds, the scientists are shown striving towards their goal with unwavering dedication and faith in spite of the destruction caused by the virus.
The Vaccine War has been written by Agnihotri and produced by his spouse Pallavi Joshi. It features Anupam Kher, Nana Patekar, Raima Sen, Pallavi Joshi, and Sapthami Gowda in lead roles.
Dubbed as India’s first bio-science film, The Vaccine War will arrive in theatres on September 28.
