Vivek Agnihotri has established himself as a successful filmmaker after his last directorial ‘The Kashmir Files’ became a massive hit. He is back with another film ‘The Vaccine War’, starring Anupam Kher, Nana Patekar, Raima Sen and Pallavi Joshi in the lead roles.
Vivek Agnihotri was earlier promoting ‘The Vaccine War’ in the US and the movie received a warm response from the audience. The promotions in India have finally kickstarted as the trailer of ‘The Vaccine War’ is out.
What’s In Vivek Agnihotri’s The Vaccine War Trailer?
On Tuesday, a glimpse into the world of the film provides a glimpse into the unwavering commitment of scientists who played a pivotal role in creating the homegrown BBV152 vaccine, commonly known as Covaxin. Developed through a collaboration between Bharat Biotech and the Indian Council of Medical Research – National Institute of Virology, this vaccine serves as the central focus of the movie.
The 180-second teaser wastes no time in setting the stage for the film’s central theme. Right from the start, we witness a senior scientist portrayed by Nana Patekar, expressing unwavering confidence in their ability to develop a vaccine. However, he emphasizes the importance of keeping it top-secret in the name of “national security.”
As the trailer unfolds, a thought-provoking question is raised by a television journalist, played by Raima Sen, regarding whether India’s medical infrastructure can safeguard its colossal population of 1.3 billion people. She firmly asserts, “No, India cannot accomplish this.”
The trailer quickly introduces a scene featuring a whiteboard displaying the phrase “Only science can triumph in this battle,” underscoring the film’s primary focus.
Several characters in the film ponder whether the virus is a result of a natural mutation or if it was created in a laboratory through reverse engineering.
As the trailer progresses, it highlights the unyielding dedication of Indian scientists in their quest to develop the vaccine, despite the fear surrounding the virus and the multitude of challenges they encounter. Patekar’s character delivers an inspiring message to his team: “This is a war, and we are all soldiers. From today onwards, we must maintain unwavering focus, just like Arjun aiming for the fish’s eye.”
