A major let-down
23 February 2010 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

Portions of Terror in Mumbai are riveting: the video footage of the attacks; interview segments with survivors, police and witnesses; and most fascinating of all, bedside footage of the police interview with the surviving Lashkar e Taiba killer. Unfortunately, these segments are connected by an incredibly annoying, breathless narration from neo-con journalist Fareed Zakaria (a student of orientalist Samuel 'Clash of Civilizations' Huntington) that is disrespectful to the victims and completely unwilling to engage the serious political issues behind the attack. It's especially disappointing, as director Dan Reed's previous film, Terror in Moscow, was a masterful documentary that didn't oversimplify the issues. This is a lazy piece of film-making that teaches us nothing about terrorism or the often fraught relationship between India and Pakistan, and in fact assumes a hysterical anti-Muslim, pro-War on Terror tone.
