Oh god, I really loved this movie. The visuals were beautiful, the music added another level to it, the actors were amazing, believable and really in character. I love watching biopics because it captures more thing than a history book or they center around something that was great/heroic but not well know. When I first heard of Neerja, there was a Twitter thread floating around with details of her actions. I was in awe of this woman but it's not till I watched the movie did it hit me how inspiring and selfless this woman was.

Neerja and her fellow flight attendants did so much to protect the passengers at the risk of their own lives, many people own their life to her. My heart ached for her family, Neerja could have left first but her father's words resounded within her, she had to be brave, stand up, do all she could to save these people even if it meant her own life. I was a mess of tears and snot by the end, but the second to photo in the end credit scene - a portrait of her family and they had a picture of her with them - had me weeping all over again.

Very well made true story film. The performances of both the heroine and the terrorist are excellent.

I have had no idea that the story of Neerja was recently filmed (2016).
Ordinary people may become our extraordinary heroes.
A story of a brave, honorable 23-years old flight attendant, who after the pilots fled the plane sacrificed her own life to save the passengers on Pan Am Flight hijacked by terrorists in 1986.
This was very well made movie. VERY suspenseful, even thought I knew the ending and story itself, it kept me on the edge of my seat.
Nicely told Neerja's story as well. Honestly: I cried like a turtle.
Exceptionally young woman, who cared about others rather than self.
May she is never forgotten.
