The trippy stoner comedy High Jack dropped its first trailer on Tuesday and it looks like one helluva ride.

The trailer reveals the story of three disgruntled employees of a failing airline who decide to hijack a plane. The first-time hijackers along with the passengers accidentally get high, resulting in a series of hilarious, whacky series of events. With stakes that have never been higher, it turns from a hijacking into one big party, high in the sky.

High Jack stars Sumeet Vyas as DJ Rakesh, an out of luck DJ, who happens to be just one of many strangely interesting characters on the plane. It also features Sonnalli Seygall and Mantra Mugdh in pivotal roles.

The film is being produced by Phantom Films in association with OTT video service Viu. It marks the directorial debut of Akarsh Khurana in Bollywood and is also Viu's first foray into films.

Vishal Maheshwari, Country Head, Viu India, said in a statement: "With the evolution of OTT platforms and consumers' tastes, quality content rules and that's why collaborating for a film like High Jack is apt for us.

"Phantom Films is known for giving its audiences an exceptional movie going experience and it gives us great pleasure to partner in with them. The film will definitely enhance the original content catalogue on our platform."

High Jack is scheduled to release on 20 April.
