Aboard a spaceship where souls of the deceased are readied for reincarnation, a lone crew member’s rigid existence is disrupted by a spry new assistant.
Cargo Movie Story: After Homo Rakshasas (à la homo sapiens) and the Prime Minister sign the Rakshas Manushya Peace Treaty, demons take over the space territory and are now in charge of transitioning dead humans into their new lives. No, they do not don hellish costumes with sloppily-made horns sticking out of their scalps. Instead, they are prim-and-proper astronauts carrying out their duties with military-like precision in multiple spaceships aka Pushpaks. Agent Prahastha (Vikrant Massey) runs the show at Pushpak 634A.
Cargo Movie Review: Cargo is a brave venture in a genre Indian filmmakers rarely go into. Science fiction is anathema to our filmmakers — perhaps because our people flatly refuse to get drawn into scientific mumbo-jumbo on screen? Or is it because creating a truly magnificent science fiction flick takes tons of inventiveness, chutzpah, and a whole lot of brains, something that is lacking in the Hindi film industry, of late. For that reason alone, Cargo deserves to be lauded to have the courage to be an outlier in a sea of historical dramas, revenge sagas, and social dramas that abound in Bollywood. Is it any wonder then that Arati Kadav’s labour of love received the backing of stalwarts like Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane?
