A gripping true story of humanity and heroism, ‘Hotel Mumbai’ vividly recounts the 2008 siege of the famed Taj Hotel in the heart of Mumbai, India. Members of Lashkar-e-Taiba, intent on massacre, storm the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in a series of coordinated attacks throughout the city. Among the dedicated hotel staff is the renowned chef Hemant Oberoi (Anupam Kher) and a waiter (Academy Award-Nominee Dev Patel) who choose to risk their lives to protect their guests when the attacks break out.
Superbly directed and edited and painstakingly researched, this is a shockingly realistic depiction of true-life events that does not spare on savagery. It paralyzes the viewer with genuine terror as extremists slowly and quietly invade the premises, hunting down everyone, making anyone a target. Unsparing in its depiction of violence and carnage, the movie meets an even greater challenge showing the myriad of ways people from all classes and cultures united and found the courage and strength to survive.
“It is a chilling, blood-splattered real-life horror show revisited. But it never jumps the gun and stays firmly focused on the human facet of the drama” – Saibal Chatterjee, NDTV
“‘Hotel Mumbai’ Is a Gripping, Deeply Humane Depiction of Real-Life Terrorism” – Rex Reed, The Observer
“No amount of words that can convey the sense of the film, because it is such a gut-punch of emotion… Just go see Hotel Mumbai — you won’t regret it.” – Andy Howell, Film Threat
“Anthony Maras’ Hotel Mumbai is a jolting cinematic experience that succeeds in transporting you to Mumbai’s worst encounter with brutality.” – Mark Kermode, The Guardian
