Hotel mumbai 2019
The Pakistani terrorists have created mayhem at various targets, but the film is largely confined to The Taj Mahal Hotel’s happenings. Thanks to Chef Hemant Oberoi’s outstanding bravery and Taj’s other staff members, a majority of guests were securely locked in the Chambers room, an exclusive club situated in a secure location. Just as the guests came to safety, reckless television journalism revealed their location. In the shooting that followed, many of the workers lost their lives. Nonetheless, it is said that about 1,600 people were trapped in the hotel, due to the heroism of Taj’s workers, about 1,700 people were rescued.
The film attempts to portray terrorists as people like us, pointing out that their handlers played them for suckers. They cared for people they left behind— their parents, their siblings, just like you and me. One terrorist also helps a woman to live when she starts reciting a Muslim prayer. At least for Indian eyes, this kind of humanization would look offensive. It’s weird that there is no mention of the terrorists being of Pakistani origin anywhere in the film. The detail is only subsequently shown as an addendum. Mumbai Hotel absolute
