Neerja: An untold story of courage
Based on a true incident, the movie is about a Pan Am 73 aircraft that was hijacked on September 5, 1986 in Karachi, Pakistan.
New Delhi : Based on a true incident, the movie is about a Pan Am 73 aircraft that was hijacked on September 5, 1986 in Karachi, Pakistan.
The story of 'Neerja' revolves around the life of flight attendant Neerja Bhanot, played by Sonam Kapoor, and her heroic effort to rescue the passengers of the hijacked flight. The film also features veteran actress Shabana Azmi as Rama, Neerja's mother.
With an excellent mix of emotion, action, direction, screenplay and performance, the movie gives us an emotional roller coaster ride.
A fearful past with a disturbed marriage and a cruel husband turned Neerja into a petrified person until she boarded her first flight as Head Flight Attendant from Mumbai to New York via Karachi and Frankfurt on September 5.
The flight got hijacked when it landed at Karachi. That is when Neerja shows great presence of mind in alerting the people in cockpit about the mishap.
The pilot and his crew flee from the cockpit by following the standard procedure in case of a hijack which makes the situation easier for the cabin crew and passengers. The motive of the militants was to free their leader locked up in Cyprus.
This was followed by a series of thrilling moments between Neerja and the militants and how she overcomes her fear. The movie also shows the emotional ride which Neerja's family goes through.
Speaking about the performance, Sonam has done an awesome job.
Shabana Azmi, playing Neerja's mother, too was excellent but the spotlight was on Sonam Kapoor. It will not be surprising if she gets a national award for this performance.
This movie should be watched for its amazing direction, screenplay and power packed performance. As a whole, 'Neerja' is a must watch movie!
