Did You Know?


The film is based on a true story. In November 2008, ten Pakistani members of Lashkar-e-Taiba, an Islamic militant organization, carried out a series of twelve coordinated shooting and bombing attacks lasting four days across Mumbai in India. The attacks, which drew widespread global condemnation, began on Wednesday 26th November and lasted until Saturday 29th November, killing 164 people and wounding at least 308. Eight of the attacks occurred in South Mumbai: at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, the Trident Oberoi Hotel, the Taj Mahal Palace & Tower Hotel, the Leopold Cafe, the Cama Hospital, the Nariman House Jewish community center, the Metro Cinema, St. Xavier's College, and in a lane behind 'The Times of India' building.

Terrible (pun intended)
10 November 2018 | by sumdyudeSee all my reviews

I am giving 1 star just for the cool scenes of Mumbai in the beginning. The girl clearly has no acting skills required for a plot such as this, she is better suited for some light weight teeny love story or something. The story revolves around the Mumbai terrorist attacks but does not delve into it at all. Rather this is an attempt at the Jodie Foster styled "Panic Room" sort of a thriller but fails miserably. The girl is locked inside her room with terrorists outside and as such, the weight of the movie is upon her acting skills, and as mentioned before, she does not deliver at all, and the rest of the script is equally boring, annoying to say the least! I could not watch it for more than 30 minutes.
