The injured terrorist in the room where the hostages are held uses a hotel phone (landline) to call home to Pakistan and gets through on first attempt. He would have had to know how to get an outside line on a hotel phone, the country code for Pakistan, the area code for his village besides his families phone no.

The acting and directing is good, tension is there from the first till the last minute. Great way to keep the memory of such a tragic days and pay respect to the victims, but also spread the story across the world. Please keep in mind that this movie will leave your mind and body in a terrible state, reminding you of the worst possible human side there is, and that will be again shown who knows where.
