Neerja
seems to be a good movie - Reports are good.


Neerja seems to be getting good reviews. The whole western burbs is talking about Shabana Azmi's wonderful performance. Even the usually irritating Sonam Kapoor is said to be above average here.



Definitely worth watching. Even Sonam haters started watching it.

The movie is declared a hit already with just 2 day business mainly in big cities and Punjab.

A story that needs to be told.

Seems like a good movie.

You shouldn't post threads without the actual review. You could have waited till you got computer access.

Re: Neerja is a good movie

Ashdoc's movie review---

After the movie ‘Airlift’ India remembers one more hero/heroine on whom a film ought to have been made 30 years ago . But maybe the Indian film industry had not come of age at that time . Or maybe the Indian people had not developed the maturity to cherish our heroes at that time . Be as it may….better late than never….

So this time the story is of Neerja Bhanot , an air hostess who saved hundreds of people on a Pan Am aircraft which had been hijacked by Palestinian terrorists belonging to the Abu Nidal group at Karachi in Pakistan after flying there from Bombay….

So the story picks up in Bombay where Neerja was the light of the life of her parents and her brothers ; and she was the heart and soul of every small event that was happening in the neighborhood….she had the personality and the charm that made her so….

But beneath her smile there was a past in which there was an abusive husband whom she had divorced , who had given her tears which she left hidden behind her smiles ; indeed it was her job as air hostess to keep smiling all the time and look happy….or maybe what made her happy was the new admirer in her life….

Air hostesses are supposed to have glamorous lives , but I didn’t see any glamour in her life in the movie other than her modeling assignments . Yes , she was a model who had modeled for TV ads and street hoardings….but no smoking or drinking or discos or late night parties for her . Her father was the one who encouraged her to be independent , but that independence was only by the standards of the times . India even in a city like Bombay was a backward socialist country….

If there was anything in which her father encouraged her the most , it was to never tolerate injustice . It had helped her survive the trauma of her bad marriage . And it was to prove mighty useful in the drama that was to unfold….

So the movie picks off with the parallel tracks of the hijackers preparing for the mission and Neerja preparing for the flight . Among other things it entails praying to their respective Gods . And the two tracks are about to meet….

……For as Neerja’s Pan Am flight lands in Karachi , the hijackers come into action as they hijack the plane and terrify everyone . The tense and terrified atmosphere in the plane and the fear and uncertainty have been portrayed all too well . Neerja immediately proves her mettle by giving the signal for the pilots to escape by using an overboard hatch , thus preventing the plane from flying to Cyprus . And she does not allow the hijackers to know that there is a radio operator on board , thus preventing them from contacting the airport authorities by radio . Above all , she helps hide the passports of the Americans on board and thus prevents the hijackers from identifying them and using the threat of massacring them release their comrades from jail .

A tense stand off of 17 hours occurs between them and the airport authorities , and every moment is fraught with tension . The differing personalities of the hijackers are well shown . One of them is calm and cool and the other is hasty and quick to anger . The third is a coward . The angry man beats the coward for his cowardice , and this leads to mayhem . Ultimately the terrorists begin to lose control over themselves out of sheer frustration . As they begin to kill people Neerja opens the doors and lets loose an escape chute to help slide the passengers out , saving most of them . But as she goes to shield some children , she has to pay the ultimate price….She could have saved herself by running away first but she sacrificed herself….heroine indeed….

The last speech by her mother ( played by Shabana Azmi ) brought me close to tears and definitely increased the emotional quotient of the movie . Acting by everyone is good as expected . And the movie may give a boost to heroine Sonam Kapoor’s flagging career .

Neerja won many awards from America , India and Pakistan posthumously . Today there is an awards instituted by Pan Am airlines in her name , which is given for bravery . Now the question is , how many awards will this movie win ??

Verdict---Good .

Four stars .

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

Re: Neerja is a good movie

^^

Movie is on a VHS quality, you can watch here on full screen,... [ no spaces ]

http://www.c l o u d y.ec/v/00a9e2ea585cb


IMO, movie was a good one, but still some room was left there and imho, after second reviewing n' before its throwing for the release for the public, few area could had been more repaired and made even lot stronger,…. And I had loved to give it a 4.2-4.3 out of 5


  • Shabana’s father and brothers were poor characters, may had added/replaced, with anupam kher/alok nath and brothers as Nawaazaadduin, Kay Kay menon or Abhisek ( like in sarkar )
  • In passenger, the audience may had planted one of a Jhonny lever, rajpal yadav, or that Airlift’s Pakavu and fault-finding guy to add some serious ‘khapat’ kind of comedy scenes..
  • Background music songs could had been more effective a little more than what it was…. And so with Shabana’s ending speech,.... like In KJo’s/ Yash's all movies we had – Baaghbaan, Mohabbetein and K3G style - a lot more effective…
  • Rajesh khannas’ many meaning full situation songs to the situation could had been shown played in the background on a radio, whenever the scenes switch to Shabana and her house-hold life…..

[*]In sex department, Sonam must had been shown more boob-butt pressing and fondlings with intimate touching allover and under her air-hostess coat, and tongue-kissed by Terrorists ( for Passport checks ) ,..to an utmost dirty level…. Etc. and again while striping her,... and lipsticks stretched all over her face,...if she is pressurized to sing,.. and she
sings whipping ( sad fashion ),..... Kaka's favorite ( as per the movie theme ) "naa koi umang hai,.. naa koi tarang hai,... meri zindagi hai kya ek kati-patang hai,... aakash mein udi mein,.. ek baar kat ke aise,.... Duniya ne fir naa poochho, loota hai muj ko kaise ! Yehi mera rang hai,... Yehi hi mera roop hai,... "

Also, when that Kid's Paper plane breaks down,.. and our Sonu sings,... " Rona kabhi nahin rona,... Chahe toot chahe koi Khilauna,... " ( sad fashion )

And, utmost climax song of Kaka that was missed in the movie,.. when Sonam was crying and reading her Hubby's secret post last times,.. and this song to be played of Kaka, from someone kid's transistor radio who turns on Vividh Bharati,... Or on Shabana's home TV, this video was playing...



Agar Tum Na Hote ( Sad ) Miss u Bebo

Re: Neerja is a good movie

Apun dekha kal yeh fillum.. torrent didn't have good print so Jaggu bhaiya ki yaad aayi.. tried his cloudy site and it had a DVD quality print.

Movie itni kucch khaas nahi thi, it had potential though. Chose bad actor Sonam in the lead, Anushka Kapoor would have been much better.

I would rate it 2 on 5, and I'm being quite generous. All the scenes that should have been gripping were shot like ordinary and no tension was built up.

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.
