Goofs

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. This is highly unlikely for somebody who is not acquainted with modern amenities, (even the WC causes consternation) and who would not have been trained or expected to communicate with anything other than the mobile phone they were provided with.

Powerful & Emotional
5 May 2019 | by fastdiablovtSee all my reviews

Based on true events, Hotel Mumbai is not a polished Holywood flick that makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside, not while you're watching it and not after it's over.

The movie has a very gritty and real feel to it. The shooting is filmed in an almost first person view, with the screen shaking in all directions every time guns go off. It kind of makes you feel like you are there, right beside the shooters and helpless victims as the scenes unfold.

Hotel Mumbai does not have a central character or "hero" who saves the day. If you're expecting a shootem up action flick with a central character who kills all of the bad guys with guns blazing, do not watch this movie.

If you can stomach watching innocent people get killed in masse, along with a lot blood spweing everywhere, and you want to see what terror looks like in the first person, go watch this movie.

8.6/10 - One of the best thrillers of 2019.
