Cargo Movie offers never-seen-before concept in the Indian Cinema. Starring Vikrant Massey and Shweta Tripathi – this Sci-Fi & Mythology is worth watching.

The story is set in a space ship and the opening scene of the movie has Biswapathi Sarkar’s character shooting a commercial about lonely lives. He shares that people call on a number so that he can remove their lonely feeling by staying with them.

Cargo is a story of an astronaut Prahastha (Vikrant Massey) who works for Post-Death Transition Services, in space. This is a sci-fi film in which mythology plays a crucial role, and hence, Massey is shown as the form of an evil devil that deals with the dead. But he is not as bad. In the movie, people who are dead arrive in his spaceship. These people do not have any idea that they’re not alive anymore. As we know that death is sudden, and Arati has clearly has shown us that. These souls have passed and are called ‘Cargo’. Prahastha is then accompanied by a female assistant Yuvishka (Shweta Tripathi) on the ship. She has the healing powers to heal the dead who have severe injuries on their bodies. It does seem like it’s just another life and death movie, but it is different. It sounds very simple but Arati Kadav has explored various  emotions, questions of existence, life and death with these two characters. There’s nothing normal in this movie. The Earth does not just belong to humans. There’s a peace treaty that is signed between the Rakshasas and human beings to co-exist. People are with superpowers, there’s icchadari naagin and also a man with tail. Watch the movie to understand how she made it possible for the existence of a world like this!

Cargo Movie is starring Vikrant Massey and he not disappoint. Clearly an effortless performer who gets annoyed, he plays calm and composed as his character was written and presented it well. Shweta Tripathi is seen doing justice to her part well. Her act with Vikrant is very good. With Nandu Madhav’s character they dded the comedy element to this movie. Cargo Movie is written and directed by Arati Yadav has rightly managed to capture Prahastha’s life in space. The journey of an afterlife of a dead person entering as a Cargo in the space ship and going through a particular procedure is captured well. The film has a unique representation as humans can’t think of death beyond hell and heaven!

Cargo is a lot more than just a simple story of life and death; it brings about a lot of questions regarding one’s journey on to Earth.
Overall, Cargo might be a sci-fi plus mythology drama, but it can be enjoyed without having to worry.

Cargo releases on 9th September, 2020.
