Sex trafficking is one of the most gruesome crimes that is rampant around the world. Every year thousands of girls go missing or are sold to sex-traffickers or brothel owners in the guise of providing employment. Girls as young as 8 or 9 have been rescued from these vicious circle around the world but there is no stopping this violence against women especially when a lot of times the authorities are also a part of this horrible syndicate. Inspired by real events the film Love Sonia’s trailer just dropped and it is as gruesome and close to life as the heinous crime it is based on.
Starring Mrunal Thakur, Riya Sisodia, Manoj Bajpayee, Richa Chadha, Rajkummar Rao, Anupam Kher, Sai Tamhankar, Adil Hussain, Demi Moore, Mark Duplass, Freida Pinto and Demi Moore, the film has already received rave reviews in numerous Film Festivals around the world and is now about to release in India soon. Based on the life of a 17-year-old teenager Sonia (Mrunal), Love Sonia’s trailer will take you into the dark and vicious space of human trafficking. The trailer takes you on Sonia’s journey of finding her sister Preeti who is trapped in the sex trade and eventually ensnares her in as well.
If you thought Rani Mukerji’s Mardaani was gruesome wait till you watch Love Sonia. The film will definitely send a shiver down everyone’s spine, and no, it is not a horror story with ghosts, zombies and make-believe imaginary characters but the horrific and dreadful real-life ordeal that many inflict on young girls and women in the name of money and power.
The trailer is an absolute eye-opener about the brutality prevailing in the world today and also brings to light that this crime is not restricted to a few under-developed or developing nations but is a global phenomenon which makes every girl and woman vulnerable and an easy target. The film is directed by Tabrez Noorani and produced by David Womark who also produced the Academy Award-winning film Life of Pi and the BAFTA awardee, Deepwater Horizon.
