Neerja - Trailer Review



Trailer Appeal - 2/5
Great plot based on true story about bravery of 23 year old air hostess Neerja Bhanot. She sacrificed her life to save life of other passengers and was awarded with highest civilian bravery award Ashok Chakra. 

As a tribute, I am glad that this film is made but unfortunately it would be one of the forgotten ones. Sonam Kapoor plays the lead character and falters to a great extent. Her dialogues are without any expressions or emotions. I wish director would have roped in someone more fearless to fit the bill. May be Anushka Sharma? 

There isn't a big starcast and no familiar names that might pull the crowd. Director Ram Madhvani is a newbie without any proven credentials. You will albeit see shades of brilliance in the scenes of Shabana Azmi. But, her role would be limited based on requirement of the plot. 

One more good plot might just get killed by substandard efforts and low budget.
