A gripping true story of humanity and heroism, HOTEL MUMBAI vividly recounts the 2008 siege of the famed Taj Hotel by a group of terrorists in Mumbai, India. Among the dedicated hotel staff is the renowned chef Hemant Oberoi (Anupam Kher) and a waiter (Academy Award-Nominee Dev Patel, Slumdog Millionaire) who choose to risk their lives to protect their guests. As the world watches on, a desperate couple (Armie Hammer, Call Me By Your Name and Nazanin Boniadi, "Homeland") is forced to make unthinkable sacrifices to protect their newborn child.Written by
Both of the two 2017-2018 theatrical feature films about the 2008 Mumbai terrorist attacks feature a leading central cast member whose surname is "Hammer". In 'Hotel Mumbai' (2018) it is actor Armie Hammer who played David whilst in 'One Less God' (2017) (aka 'The Mumbai Siege' / 'The Mumbai Siege: 4 Days Of Terror') it is Martelle Hammer who played Claire.

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.
