Yami Gautam plays Naina Jaiswal, a kindergarten teacher, who takes 16 children of the play school she works at hostage. She gives a call to the police, making several demands to them, shocking everyone associated with her. From asking for a sum of Rs. 5 crore to demanding to talk to the Prime Minister (Dimple Kapadia), she keeps the police force on their toes. She even goes on to threaten to kill the children one by one, in alphabetical order, if her demands aren’t met.
Said to be a spiritual sequel of Naseeruddin Shah and Anupam Kher starrer A Wednesday, the thriller is written and directed by Behzad Kambata, and produced by RSVP and Blue Monkey Films. It stars Gautam, alongside Atul Kulkarni, Neha Dhupia, Kapadia, Karanvir Sharma and Maya Sarao, among others, and premieres on February 17 on Disney+ Hotstar.
