While showing the horrific acts of terror, Hotel Mumbai also highlights nuances that bring the essence of humanity into the movie. One scene that highlights this quite well is when one of the international guests is scared of Arjun’s, (played by Dev Patel), because of his appearance and how he handles the situation will leave you with a smile. Anupam Kher has as usual delivered his best as the head chef who tries to bring calm amidst the chaos to help the terrified guests. Armie Hammer and Nazanin Boniadi fare quite well as the American-Iranian/English couple, deeply in love and parents to an infant. Their heart-wrenching story is one of the many. Another interesting character is that of a Russian democrat played by Jason Isaacs who brings with him suspicion and intrigue. The other characters who have done a commendable job are Amandeep Singh, Suhail Nayyar, Manoj Mehra, Dinesh Kumar who play the terrorists. Their realistic performance will leave you impressed.
Directed by Anthony Maras and produced by Thunder Road Pictures the movie releases on 29th November 2019. Add this to your weekend plans if you haven’t already.
