In 2008, a band of young Islamic militants from Pakistan lands in Mumbai, their primary target, the iconic Taj Mahal hotel. With Indian forces unable to regain control, for 4 days the guests must battle to survive as the terrorists seek to drive them from hiding. The harrowing events that follow will come to be known as India's 9/11 and one of the most audacious terrorist attacks in history. Yet more than a tale of monsters and men, this is a story of our shared humanity at the dark crossroads to which we have now stumbled. Inspired by true events. Written by Anonymous

Great film with a universal message, ignore the haters
26 September 2018 | by themanwiththeplan-31366See all my reviews

Been following this film for a while now. Saw it at a film festival. I felt I had to step in and give a review- not sure why people are turning this into a political thing. So many 1/10s??? Must be people who haven't even seen the film. It's NOT anti-Pakistan as other reviewers have mentioned- in fact the message seems (to me at least), about setting aside our differences for the sake of love, peace and our future.

So that aside, I was really intrigued by the terrorist perspective - seeing them as humans who clearly are brainwashed - although the film does not end up forgiving them by any means. Then you have the hotel goers, desperate to survive but no other option but to stay put. For the majority of the film being in the one room, it didn't get dull and created a sense of claustrophobia. The soundtrack was awesome too. On the flip side the acting was sometimes melodramatic and special effects were hit and miss.

I've just noticed a few films have tackled this topic. I see Hotel Mumbai with Dev Patel/Jason Isaacs is coming out soon, which I'm also looking forward to seeing! Terrorism is sadly still topical and I strongly feel we need to fight the extremist ideologies, not each other! Peace.
