AIRLIFT is a classic film based on a real life incident that is told extremely well on screen. It is surely one of the best films to come out this year and will pick up with a strong word of mouth. Just do not miss this one!
Airlift is a rare megastar vehicle that derives obvious benefits from the lead actor's magnetism without subjugating itself to the need to make the most of his presence in the cast. Airlift is a film that every Indian, and every Bollywood buff despairing for genuinely high quality storytelling, must watch.
Airlift is compelling, thanks largely to a sterling performance from Akshay Kumar. Everything else is sincerity and fortitude, and while well-meaning, sticking merely to that is what keeps this film from being genuinely memorable. Even when toasting a true story, say our movies, a superstar is worth more than a real hero.
Airlift is first and foremost a heart-stopping thriller. It’s the story of a man whose heroism is awakened in the hour of crisis. Though the budget constraints show up in the aerial and ground attack scenes (as uncalled-for as the Iraqi general’s Arabicaccent) the film wears an urgent and tense look that reaches down to the audience and clutches us by our guts. For your money and time, Akshay Kumar is the most watchable star in Bollywood today. See Airlift, you will know why.
Like its hero Ranjit Katiyal, Airlift helps Bollywood airlift itself out of the mess it normally resides in. Raja Krishna Menon's Airlift is a tale of heroism, courage, patriotism, and a lot more. And deserves a standing ovation. However, despite all the brilliance, the last bit of the film looks hurried. All in all, Airlift is un-miss-able. Go watch it.
The untold story of India’s biggest evacuation mission is certainly worth a watch. Akshay Kumar delivers a subtle yet compelling performance. Even though the story is real, in spite of adding fictional characters such as the Major, it lacks a good antagonist.Airlift is a perfect Republic day weekend watch. It’s not high on patriotism but has the right amount of it. Also, like always Akshay Kumar never lets you down with films coming from this genre.
