Trivia

For three days and nights in 2008 - from November 26 to 29 - Mumbai was a city under siege. Arriving from Pakistan via a hijacked fishing vessel, a squad of young jihadists rained terror upon the population with a coordinated series of shooting and bombing attacks. With local police forces stretched thin, terrified locals and tourists scampered for refuge as Mumbai went up in flames. 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.

Excelent recreation of what happened there, good film well made
6 June 2019 | by josemanuelhSee all my reviews

I was hosted 200 meters from the Taj that night, the narrative is so realistic, I recreated the events watching the film. Nevertheless the other hotels also attacked are not present at all, although I understand the story focuses on the Taj, the film would have been even better. Mumbai was under siege that day, streets closed by the army, nobody in the streets, persons or vehicles, all these are not present or even insinuated in the film. Although I miss how the terrorist avoided shooting muslins asking them to pray to confirm.

I really enjoyed watching it either way.
