Movie Review: Airlift

Release date: 22 Jan 2016

Director: Raja Krishna Menon
Actors: Akshay Kumar, Nirmat Kaur, Inaamulhaq, Prakash Belawadi

What to Expect?
If you have seen the promos and promotions you would know that this movie is based on the biggest evacuation in human history in which around 1,70,000 people were evacuated by India when Iraq invaded Kuwait in 1990.

It is one of those movies that really deserves Rs 300+ crore super hit tag. This is not the regular masala stuff. Don't miss this one if you like serious cinema. It also has some very good messages on unity, leadership, tact sensitivity in a given situation, importance of money, importance of relationships, and humanity.

Inaamulhaq impresses in his role of Major Khalaf Bin Zayd.
Prakash Belawadi is Awesome as George Kutti.
Nirmat Kaur is first rate, this is her yet another excellent performance after the much acclaimed 'The Lunchbox'.
Akshay Kumar is in great form as he brings the fictional character of Ranjit Katiyal alive on the silver screen. This is one of his best work till date.

Does it Deliver?
It works like magic. Very realistic depiction of a war torn country. Excellent direction. Depiction of Indian bureaucracy is also very touching. The real winner here is the subject with which you can relate to.

Loose Ends?

There are hardly any loose ends. Films length is about 124 minutes, it is very crisp and to the point. Very well edited.

Final word

Must Watch for those Indian citizens who stay abroad. Some important lessons of how things could change based on political scenarios. It also tells you what it takes to become a leader. Watch it because it raises the bar of bollywood higher. For a change, you get relief from the usual guy girl romance, senseless comedies or action. Finally we get to see something that makes us proud. Awesome!
