Trivia

Listening to the first-hand accounts of Chef Oberoi and others strongly influenced the approach director Anthony Maras would take to telling the story. He was especially struck by the fact that many of the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel staff came from impoverished backgrounds. "For them working at the Taj wasn't just a job," he said. "It was the promise of a better life. It's an intense source of pride, being part of something that represents the greatness India is capable of." See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
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.

Shoes?
17 May 2020 | by latinomeSee all my reviews

Maybe this is so trivial but wonder in the real situation people were wearing shoes and not think to go barefoot to avoid being heard by the terrorists. There was this scene when the guy ran across the lobby to the elevator and I'm sure one of the gunned man would hear him, he was very close. Well it's a movie based in true events so,were they really wearing shoes or shoes were added for dramatic effect?
