Airlift Review 3 Stars


Airlift Theatrical Trailer

Movie: Airlift 

Rating: 3 Stars (Three stars)

Star Cast: Akshay Kumar, Nimrat Kaur

Director: Raja Krishna Menon

What’s Good: The untold story of India’s biggest evacuation mission is certainly worth a watch. Akshay Kumar delivers a subtle yet compelling performance.

What’s Bad: Even though the story is real, in spite of adding fictional characters such as the Major, it lacks a good antagonist.

Watch or Not?: Airlift is a perfect Republic day weekend watch. It’s not high on patriotism but has the right amount of it. As always Akshay Kumar never lets the audiences down with films coming from this genre.

Ranjit Katyal (Akshay Kumar) is a shrewd businessman from Kuwait who prefers to be known as a Kuwait resident in spite of his Indian origin. His lavish lifestyle takes a hit when Saddam Hussein led Iraqi army invades Kuwait. Finding himself and his family badly stuck in a war-torn area where his only savior is his Indian identity, Ranjit soon starts to use his negotiation skills to find a way to escape Kuwait. Situations change a person and Ranjit soon has a change of heart as he starts to take up the responsibility of all the Indians stranded.

Will his dedicated efforts and his business contacts help him rescue 1,70,000 Indians is what is left to see.
