Man on the Phone: [speaking in Punjabi] You feel strong. You feel calm. There is no fear in your heart. Look across at your brothers... and see me in their eyes. You are all like sons to me. I am with you. God is with you. Paradise awaits you. God is great.

Hotel Mumbai
17 March 2019 | by potter98See all my reviews

Hotel Mumbai is a really well made film that captures the horror and devastation of the Mumbai terrorist attacks in 2008. The film is relentless and doesn't hold back - at times it is difficult to watch and may be too much for some viewers - but it feels incredibly realistic and completely draws you in emotionally. There is not a dull moment and you will be holding your breathe the entire time. The cast all give great performances, especially Dev Patel as a kind hearted waiter. The characters are really well written and easy to become invested in, making it all the more devastating when something happens to them. Obviously the most devestating thing about the story is the fact that it actually happened. Stories like this show the worst in humanity, but they also show the best in humanity, and the power of the human spirit. It's a challenging watch that succeeds at gripping its audience until the very end.
