What a movie!!! One of the most awaited movies of 2016 and it turned out to be a goose-bump experience for me. Besides the new-found respect for Ram Madhvan for his amazing direction and Shabana Azmi for an incredulous acting, I found utmost respect for Neerja Bhanot as the person that she was.
This movie is not about the incident or about the larger scenario of a plane hijack. Infact it was about just one character – the real-life hero, Neerja Bhanot, who performed her responsibilities and maintained her self-respect in one of the most life-threatening situations that she was in. Not to discredit Sonam Kapoor, I honestly feel she could have done a little better in doing justice to the character of this brave girl.
The movie invoked an interesting debate as to whether Neerja should have left the plane when she got the chance, or did she do the right thing by sacrificing herself for the children. Whatever side of the argument you are on, you will discover in the end of the debate that the talk was all about humanity and not about a single human.
Kudos to the entire team of Neerja for doing an amazing job at bringing the tale of this braveheart to us!
