Check Out the Trailer of ‘Choked’

Directed by Anurag Kashyap, starring Saiyami Kher and Roshan Mathew, the first official trailer of Netflix Original film Choked: Paisa Bolta Hai, is out!

Anurag Kashyap dropped the trailer on his social media profile. He captioned it, “Here is the trailer for our labour of love “Choked – Paisa bolta hai “ Only on @NetflixIndia featuring @SaiyamiKher @roshanmathew22 @AmrutaSubhash @rajshriartist @Upendralimaye written by @misterbistar”

Saiyami Kher will be seen as Sarita Pillai, whom she described as a 30-year-old overworked middle-class woman, and the sole breadwinner of the household. According to a press release, her life is stuck in a rut but only changes direction when she finds a continuous stash of money under her kitchen sink.

The trailer uses demonetization, as plot remises and spins a riveting tale around it. The demonetization serves as the inflection point in the graph of Saiyami’s character, who discovers currency notes wrapped up in small plastic bags stored in a leaked pipe inside her apartment.

Meanwhile, Mathew will be seen as a struggling musician, who dreams of making it big after moving to Mumbai. However, every attempt is met with a failure, which also affects his marriage.

Choked: Paisa Bolta Hai marks Kashyap’s fourth collaboration with the streaming giant. He has previously directed a short for the anthology films Lust Stories, and an adaptation of Vikram Chandra’s Sacred Games. Both projects were nominated at the International Emmy Awards 2019.
