'Lost' trailer: Yami searches for truth relentlessly as investigative journalist
On Wednesday, the trailer of Lost, headlined by actor Yami Gautam Dhar, was released by ZEE5 on its YouTube channel. The two-minute-long video puts emphasis on a crime reporter, played by Gautam Dhar, and her relentless pursuit of finding the truth behind the sudden disappearance of a young artist. Helmed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury, the film will exclusively premiere on ZEE5 on February 16.
Why does this story matter?
- From the director of the movie Pink, Lost is yet another thriller drama that makes an attempt to bring forward a social issue.
- The film Lost is inspired by true events.
- The trailer opens up with a disclaimer that says around 665 people go missing in India every year, according to the 2019 report of the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB).
Gautam Dhar's pursuit of truth comes at a heavy cost!
The plot seems simple - a young crime reporter who is enthusiastic about finding the missing pieces of the puzzle. But as the story evolves, the narrative gets entwined. There are many questions to answer - whether the missing artist is missing or has absconded, whether it is a case of a love story, or whether he was a part of an extremist group.

'True life events inspire me…' said 'Lost' director
According to the director, Lost was conceptualized because Roy Chowdhury takes inspiration from true life events that lead him to tell different stories. In an interview about his upcoming project, he said, "The movie will make you question, introspect, and tug at your heartstrings." While praising the performance of the actors, he said that Gautam Dhar portrayed the character with a lot of modesty.
