why did world war 1 start
They say the why did world war 1 start is a big armed camp with all war material lying about the world, and a single match will set a haystack ablaze. Such an ablaze flared up in 1990 when Iraqi forces invaded Kuwait severely and occupied it just in 2 days. In consequence of this, more than 1,70,000 Indians were there endangered in crisis willing to get out of Kuwait. There was nothing, but terror all around. No help, poor communication, no transport, limited food and then we were 1.7 lakh in nu...mbers and we all had to evacuate from that war zone. Kinda sound hard na. Yes, it was hard to accomplish but not impossible. And, that impossible looking mission accomplished by our unsung hero Ranjit Katyal, played by Akshay Kumar, when he succeeded to evacuate 1.7 lakh people from Kuwait to India. It must have proud moment for us and you get exact feelings while watching this movie. We feel proud we salute our heroes.
The whole journey, from starting of war to airlift of Indian refugees, is thrilling and entertaining as a film. Script has some limitations though as I felt it could have been faster prompt or with aid of more mystique stuff that could have made you breathless. Nevertheless, it was real incident based movie and in India portraying such incidents on screen is a big deal in itself and for that I thank whole Airlift team to step into this project. They've done good job. Director Raja Menon, unknown name to most of us, has surprised us with his work for sure. Priya Seth, a girl cinematographer in Bollywood, words can not describe her technical eyes. She is gift to this movie. Cinematography is top notch, setup of war zones will remain into your eyes even after you get out of theatre. Songs are very good and executed comfortably. And, then lastly talking about star performances, well you gonna love star cast heartily. Akshay versatility, tension of moments on his face can be easily captured. With his power-packed performance, he has proved once again that with right script he can rule our hearts. Nimrat Kaur, every man has a wife or gonna have one (Please, exclude me) but you can't get Nimrat Kaur, who played role of Ranjeet's wife. She is so gorgeous, sweet and sexy, sometimes sulky but you love even that too. And kya speech Diya.. Masha'Allah maja aa gya. After The Lunchbox, get to see her in more feminine attributes. Rest of all are very good.
Verdict: I watched it full packed theatre. Audiences were cheering, shouting and yelling. It was kinda celebrating our proud unclaimed heroes. We all gave it a big round of applause at the end of the movie and here I end my words quoting Firstpost, "It takes one hero to recognize and acknowledge another."
My Rating: 8/10
