Guilty trailer: Kiara Advani's Netflix Original addresses victim blaming, class conflicts, and ambiguous nature of truth

The trailer of Kiara Advani's upcoming Netflix Original Guilty has been debuted by Dharma Productions' digital content arm Dharmatic. Directed by Ruchi Narain, the trailer arrives a day after the first official poster.

Guilty explores the nebulous nature of truth, victim-blaming, and class conflicts. The story follows a small-town girl who accuses the college heartthrob of sexual assault. Seen through the eyes of a musician, Guilty intends to make the audience question who is truly 'guilty' in such circumstances.

Kiara Advani plays Nanki, an upwardly mobile, "wild," pot-smoking college student and musician. Her "tribe" consists of her boyfriend VJ, and friends Tashi and Hardy. All goes well until a girl named Tanu Kumar accuses VJ of raping her on Valentine's Day. As the news becomes viral, testimonies become ambiguous, and friendships begin to fray.

Narain is best known for writing screenplays of films such as Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi and Calcutta Mail. As a director, she has helmed films like Kal: Yesterday and Tomorrow and Hanuman Da' Damdaar.
