Bollywood out does Hollywood

Just a great film about multiple monsterous acts of madness / violence that happened in Mumbai. So we'll done, not showing any acts of movie heroism, just ordinary people who reacted in different ways when confronted with the unthinkable, the one thing everybody deep down is terrified of facing. Had some scenes of live news feeds which take nothing away, while the best scene is the Russian leaving the lounge and be told we will pray for you and he says don't bother that's what's lead us here. Just s great summary of where there this crazy world is now. Madman men killing because a book written hundreds of years ago tells you to. Make a pledge never to listen to these people who tell you they can tell the future by reading a book written by someone who thought the earth was flat.
