JL50 teaser: Abhay Deol, Pankaj Kapur bring an edge-of-the-seat thriller about a missing plane that crash lands 35 years after it took off


The first teaser for SonyLIV’s upcoming sci-fi film JL50 has been dropped online. The film stars Abhay Deol, Pankaj Kapur and Rajesh Sharma in the lead roles. JL50 is about a flight that crash lands in West Bengal. However, the crash is not so much of a contention but the fact that the plane actually took off 35 years ago.

The teaser shows an airplane flying over kids playing soccer in a field when an aeroplane flies overhead and makes its landing. After it crashes, we see Abhay telling Kapur that the plane has landed after it took off 35 years ago. Kapur laughs saying that things are usually delayed in India but gets speechless when he hears Abhay’s revelation and is left in a state of shock.

The film is similar to the urban legend of the Santiago Flight 513 that disappeared in 1954 but was reported to have been found 35 years later in 1989 with its passengers’ and crew members’ skeletons inside. The incident is not proven and remains a legend.

Abhay plays a CBI detective in the film, which has been in production since 2017. The film sees him travel through space/time to solve the mystery of the plane. The film’s release date has not been announced yet.
