Netflix’s new film Cargo is set up in the near future of the year 2027 where humans and demons (Rakshas) have signed a peace treaty for their mutual good. Here, enters a huge spaceship called Pushpak 634A (remember that mythological flying palace of demon king Ravana?) on the screen where humans arrive after death as Cargo.
At Pushpak, these cargos (humans) are neither categorized according to their karmas (deeds) nor sent to heaven or hell rather they are attended by the demon agent Prahastha (Vikrant Massey) who ruin their memories, heal ailments and prepare these cargos for their next life.
Prahastha, the protagonist, has been stationed at Pushpak for the last 75 years as the lone astronaut and is in-charge of Post-Death Transition Services as per the treaty signed between demons and humans. Prahastha is an expert of his work performing his duty with diligence and accompanied by another Rakshas, Nitigya (Nandu Madhav) over the CRT monitor.
Prahastha has accepted his loneliness and loves to follow his daily routine monotonous job of attending the cargos. He doesn’t like to change but here enters the youthful and refreshing Yuvishka (Shweta Tripathi) who brings freshness and new energy not only to Prahastha’s life but the film as well. The brilliance and super-power of Yuvishka makes Prahastha embark on a journey of self-discovery.
Cargo is a film that explores the theme of reincarnation, garbed efficiently in science fiction while telling a humorously touching story of loneliness of demons.

Vikrant Massey has been a true delight in this film with his natural-realistic act which went directly into the skin of Prahastha’s lone character who loves staying in solitude. Shweta Tripathi has also done well to do justice with her character Yuvishka Shekhar who is a university topper and full of confidence.
Cargo movie’s director Aarti Kadav has done a brilliant job in her feature film debut where she has shown efficient balance between the science fiction and the portrayal of loneliness of the main character.
