Hotel Mumbai (2019)

Hotel Mumbai: Is a commendable Australian effort to capture the horrific events which unfolded in November of 2008. The film has a neutral perspective throughout, showing us the brainwashed terrorists, their victims, the lucky ones who got away, and the city that burned and watched.

Emotions range from anger, fear, reflection, sadness to pure disgust, as the many vulnerabilities of the system are exposed, and the trashy Indian media makes things worse. The film captures the harsh reality in every gun shot, but reminding us that terror has no religion or nationality.

A disturbing watch, but a perspective which should be seen by all. Great performances by Dev Patel, Armie Hammer and the entire cast.

4/5
