The official trailer of the much anticipated movie ‘Bhopal A Prayer For Rain’ starring for the first time Mischa Barton, Kal Penn and Martin Sheen in an Indian film. The movie is a social thriller based on the Bhopal Gas Tragedy of 1984.
Set in December 1984, A PRAYER FOR RAIN is based on true events when a devastating pesticide leak in Madhya Pradesh, central India, killed thousands of people.
Filmed in India, A PRAYER FOR RAIN traces the lives of those living in Bhopal during the lead-up to what is still the world’s biggest chemical disaster through to its tragic aftermath, which many feel has still not been addressed, and which continues to have a major impact on peoples’ lives today. The victims of the Bhopal disaster have still, to this day, never received an official apology from the Indian or American government.
Dilip, a rickshaw driver in Bhopal, India, lands himself a job at the Union Carbide plant. It is a chance to prove his worth to his family and pull them out of poverty. The job is tough with long hours; everyone is desperate to hold on to their pay cheque and so Dilip keeps quiet when he notices managers at the plant ignoring safety standards.
Dilip’s long time friend, Motwani, a tabloid journalist knows that Bhopal residents complain of the constant stench in the air and wake up at night choking from the gas. He is on a mission to expose what he believes is a deadly time bomb ticking away in his home town. He feels as if no one will listen but when he meets feisty American journalist, Eva, he sees a ray of hope and persuades her to confront Carbide executive Warren Anderson.
