Although its runtime is 125min., it isn't boring. On the contrary, it is full of actions. Everything is nice showed and tension in happenings is present all the time. Yes, it is action next to that it is drama and thriller. Probably some of the characters who are in that story are fiction, or maybe they aren't?! For character of the chef we know that he is real and that he was there, but for the all the rest of them, we don't know. Whether those characters are fiction or not, those Mumbai attacks happened in real, in 2008, and it is worth seeing their pictures in this movie.
