Even before the movie hit the theatres, we have been hearing some extremely good reviews about Akshay Kumar starrer 'Airlift' and we needed to see it to believe it and we did and we are speechless. But good things need to be shared, so here we go.

Smart and shrewd businessman Ranjt Katiyal (Akshay Kumar) resides in Kuwait along with his wife (Nimrat Kaur) and daughter. He is powerful enough to tackle all is problems and lead a wonderful life. Ranjit is proud to be a Kuwaiti and hates every little thing that reminds him of his Indianness. It is only after a mishap strikes Kuwait and Iraqi soldiers invade Kuwait, that he realizes his worth for his homeland. He along with 1.70 lakh Indians is evacuated from Kuwait to reach India safe and how, forms the rest of the story..

It has been a long time since a movie has managed to wake-up the Indian residing inside each of us and Airlift does just that. The movie speaks of the unparalleled courage of the unsung heroes that was long-lost in the history. Akshay Kumar, who plays the main protagonist, is better than apt for the role. No other actor could have played the part better than what he does. From displaying various emotions onscreen to expressing grief and rage with such perfection, Akshay is a treat to watch in every scene. Nimrat again is such a delight. The actress is expressive and how. She speaks with her eyes and sure needs to be seen a lot more in Bollywood. Rest of the cast including Feryna Wazheir, Inaamulhaq, Lena, Purab Kohli, Kumud Mishra and Prakash Belawadi throw in some fabulous acts and are perfect in their parts.

Nothing, and I mean nothing in the face of earth can not prove Airlift to be swaying or gritty. The movie not just has the best of all worlds but is one of the best Bollywood films that you may come across in a very very very long time. Filmmaker Raja Menon is one dedicated man and the way in which he has put his whole and soul in the film is clearly seen. The research that has gone into bringing a mishap like this in front of the people is enough to tell what Menon is capable of. He has induced the elements of wit, love, drama, war and patriotism making the movie even more worthwhile.

It is patriotic, heroic and what not. Do not even think about giving this a miss, you may end loosing a good two something hours of your life.

Rating: 4.50 / 5.0
