My Review- Hotel Mumbai.

Another terrific collaboration from The South Australian Film Corporation Screen Australia the Indian and U.S.A Distribution. Company's .

Their previous great success was Lion,which also starred Dev Patel and 30 cast and crew from Lion also worked on Hotel Mumbai.

The quality of this production is obvious in every frame and the interior shots of Hotel Mumbai are all filmed in the studio in Adelaide and are lavish ,outdoor locations were filmed in Mumbai and Maharashtra India.

Based on the terrible terrorist attacks by Islamic terrorist organisation based in Pakistan which took place in Mumbai in November 2008 where 12 separate attacks took place in the city resulting in at least 174 civilian deaths .

Most of the action involves the siege at the Hotel Mumbai and is so realistic it's frightening and very disturbing at times to watch The entire ensemble cast of fine actors give such convincing performances that you feel you have witnessed an accurate account of the terror and total disregard these monsters had for human life. Stand out performances by Dev Patel again ,cast as Arjun a Hotel Porter ,who just sets off for a normal day at work and is catapulted into a nightmare ,it made me think of the hero of The Martin Place siege Tori Johnson,who did exactly the same thing and never returned home in December 2014.

Dev Patel has developed in to a fine actor since his debut in Slumdog Millionaire ,which was made in 2008 when this film is set. Also impressive performances by Zanin Boniadi as Zahra and Armie Hammer as David her husband involved in the fight of their lives to try and escape with their baby. As mentioned the whole cast is top rate especially Anupam Khmer as Oberoi the Hotel concierge,who try's to maintain calm and the film shows the truth that the heroes of this shocking siege were the Taj Hotel courageous staff.

This film is the first full feature movie for Adelaide born Producer Director and co writer of Hotel Mumbai ,Anthony Maras and I hope if this film is any indication of his talents that there will be many more to follow.

Go see this movie it's certainly not The Marigold Hotel and it's confronting at times but full of Action ,great script and Production.

I felt entertained ,informed and now more knowledgeable of events today in a very scary world,where no one can take anything for granted and in a world ,where we turn on the news to hear of similar atrocities and have become almost immune to the human suffering that these cowards and madmen inflict on human kind for a misguided sense of Religious Superiority.
