Re: Neerja is a good movie

Saw this movie recently... can be called a hijack movie for women. Most of the movie is spent in rona-dhona... where even the terrorists seem to be participating. Eventually in the end there is a whole lot of confusion and the hijack is ended. Nobody knows what is happening... and that includes the director. Probably trying for that real-life effect.

Acting-wise, everyone is crying all the time. The only happy moments seem some old Rajesh Khanna dialogues. So to say whether someone acted well or not is to figure out if they were crying for real or faking. The best would be Shabani Azmi as she mixes her crying well with fake-smiles... really good. The actress playing Neerja... it is very hard to figure out if she is crying or smiling. For her either seems the same... her mouth just splits apart and her teeth show up. Is she crying? Is she smiling? Would never know.

Overall for a hijack-movie, I would rate this 1 out of 5... especially if the hijack team is preparing for the hijack for months and once on the plane, they come completely apart... not knowing how to manage the hijack. Totally disorganized. Hope more terrorists turn out like this.
