The movie is about the 26/11 Mumbai Attacks of 2008, and mainly based on the 2009 documentary Surviving Mumbai by Victoria Midwinter Pitt. The terrorists were from a Pakistani organization, who did 12 coordinated shooting and bomb blasts that lasted for four days in the city of Mumbai. In this attack, 174 people died (including the 9 attackers), and 300 people were wounded. The attacks took place at 8 places around the city, but from the trailer it looks like they have focused more on the incidents inside the hotel. This is an Indian-American movie that has been directed by Anthony Maras.
The way the staffs of the hotel have risked their lives to save other people in the hotel can be observed from the trailer. The trailer got remarks such as “Masterful...Hauntingly Real” by The Wrap, Nail-Biting by The Hollywood Reporter, and Emotionally Electrifying by Variety. The cast includes Dev Patel in the lead, the other actors are Armie Hammer, Nazanin Boniadi, Anupam Kher, and Jason Isaacs. Dev Patel is playing the role of a waiter who has a child and pregnant wife at home but has been shown trying his best to protect the people who are in a danger.
Armie Hammer and Nazanin Boniadi are a couple trying to save their baby from the attack. Anupam Kher is portraying Hemant Oberoi, a chef, Dev Patel and Anupam Kher are shown coordinating and executing plans to help the guests there at the hotel. The trailer has shown bravery but the sad heart-breaking part is there in the whole scenario which reminds us of the brutal attack by the terrorists. Previously, a documentary movie The Attacks of 26/11 was released in 2013, with Nana Patekar as the leading character. The movie is going to release on 29th March, 2019.
