Neerja released on 19th Feb, 2016 is adaptation of the real life of late neerja bhanot, it shows the stimulated boldness of senior flight crew member (purser) who sacrificed her life while singlehandedly saving the life of many passengers on the ill-fated Pan Am Airlines in 1986 when her flight was hijacked by terrorist.
It clearly picturise the distinctive and altruism act of brave Neerja Bhanot. Sonam Kapoor played her heroic role of brave neerja. Sonam Kapoor delivered her best performance as playing the lead role of Neerja.
The brave Indian girl neerja was born on 7th September, 1963 in chandigadh, panjab. She is a senior flight purser on the ill-fated Pan Am Flight 73. She is always known for her brave and benevolent nature. And she was also the youngest recipient of India’s highest peacetime military award for bravery, the Ashok Chakra.
Movie is crafted on the biographical thriller drama of Aviation flying from Mumbai to USA, which was hijacked by four armed men on 5th September 1986 at Karachi airport in Pakistan. And how the Neerja prevented the terrorists from carrying out their unfavorable plans to aid the number of passengers.
A decent cast fits to the story. Sonam Kapoor as a neerja plays with sensitivity and courage. Sonam’s Neerja quietly seals a place in your heart. Shabana Azmi also played very attractively as she controlled in her acting when she lets go. Yogendra Tiku slips into his role easily and Khalil (theatre actor, Jim Sarbh) as the extravagant terrorist is terrific. Music composer Shekhar Ravjiani manages to make an impression, but it is Sonam and Shabana’s film at the end of the day.
It was such a wonderful efforts of Mitesh Mirchandani’s cinematography and production design as they recreating the Bombay of 80s and all pushes you into the nostalgia.
Songs in the movie are also very nice.
The film does have some foul-up. it became a bit slow in between but even all this bit sneeze in a film that is telling an inspiring and fearless story of brave Indian girl which raises a toast to the daunting spirit of India’s daughters; every one of us must salute Neerja.
“Drop everything and go watch Neerja”
