The Netflix series produced by Yash Raj Films will premiere on November 18, 2023.
One of the most anticipated series coming on Netflix in the coming days is The Railway Men, which is the first outing of YRF in the OTT space. The series stars R. Madhavan, Kay Kay Menon, Divyenndu, and Babil Khan in the lead roles and is set against the backdrop of the 1984 Bhopal Gas Tragedy. Now, Netflix has announced that the trailer for The Railway Men will be out on Monday.
Trailer announcement and intense poster release:
The makers dropped a new poster featuring the lead actors giving an intense look. While sharing the poster, they captioned it, "Four heroes who came together on a fateful night and rose against the chaos."
Check out the poster below:
The opening of the teaser shows what appears to be a gas leak at a large plant. In an effort to protect themselves from the toxic fumes, people can be seen rushing around with their garments over their noses and mouths. R. Madhavan, the Central Railways' General Manager, walks in and orders the station master, Kay Kay Menon, to take action. Divyenndu plays a police constable who volunteers to fulfil his job and promises that his community can put their faith in him even more than in his outfit. Babil Khan, the lone visible loco pilot at the station, is briefly spotted as well. He is overheard claiming that this is his city and the people who are being killed are his own. The tone of the teaser is created by multiple brief views of the victims shortly after the main characters and plot are introduced.
The unsung heroes of the Bhopal gas tragedy are the focus of The Railway Men, an engaging four-part character-driven series. The show, written by Aayush Gupta and directed by debutant Shiv Rawail, will focus on the heroic actions taken by Indian Railways staff during that period and their unwavering will to preserve lives.
The limited series will premiere on Netflix on November 18, 2023.
