Re: Neerja is a good movie

P_Jani / Jagmohan's Review

Yup,.. Watched the movie finally.

Movie is right on the mark, what the most reviewer says,.. it of around four stars out of 5.0. Almost shoulder to shoulder delivery with recent Akki’s movie – Airlift in a thriller way.

Special 26, Baby, D-day, Phantom, Bajarangii Bhaijaan, Airlift and here it comes “Neerja” – All in the same line, in the sense that it will hold you in chair, till end. .

We have seen the movie “ Airforce one “ of Harrison Ford, and this is the one on a real life story, with typical Hindi films family life story,… and emotions and feeling woven to it, with typical dialects, old Hindi songs ( all of Kaka in this movie- as it’s short of tribute to Kaka ) and the typical background songs… which is nicely woven without any hype.

As the subject-matter goes of terrorists in a plane, then naturally movie gets into the gear in each of its frame and will never let you move from the chair, till the end,.. and here it is a short 2 hours of movie, and mainly in the plane, among the hijackers passengers and air-hostesses,….. just like previous “Airforce one” the Hollywood movie.

Movie is also a tribute to Rajesh Khanna, as Neerja being the hardcore fan of Kaka’s songs, movies and dialects,… the movie starts with a theme of Kaka’s Anand Dilacet,..

Zindagi badi honi chahiye,.. Lambi nahin”

Premnagar’s party song – Bye Bye Miss good-night,.. kal phir milenge,…. Where Hema was also an air-hostess.

“ Mere sapnon ki rani,.. kab aayegi tu,..” ( Sonam is expecting her hubby to get married with him ) is sung in a crying fashion.

And Naturally, ( if you know the real-life story of Neerja Bhanot ) a message comes,.. and movie ends with the dialect “ Pushpa,. I hate tears… !”

Shabana as Sonam’s mother is ok, rest there are no famous stars in the movie, entire movie is shouldered on Sonam and due to her young age and skinny air-hostess body structure, she fits here well, and this would be the master-milestone movie of her career, after junkies like PRDP and such.

Movie is nicely made of a typical plane hijack, full of thrilling…. And is worth watching in a theater. In real life also Four terrorists had handled this hi-jack and were given the life imprisonment, later, and around 25 lives were lost…!

If you liked this movie, I had suggest recent movie “ Captain Phillips “of Tom Hanks ( Ship Hijack ) which was equally as good as this.

I had ranked this movie 3.85 / 5.0
