Neerja Bhanot (Sonam Kapoor), flying as chief purser for the first time, is readying for her morning flight while four terrorists affiliated to Palestine’s Abu Nidal Organisation are offering their last prayer in Lyari, Karachi.
(Lyari is still one of the most dreaded places in the South Asia region.)The terrorists manage to board the flight with their ammunition, but the full extent of their plan is reduced when Neerja alerts the pilots, who run away.
She subsequently appeared in several more Telugu films, while making in-roads in the Hindi and Tamil industries.
In 2007, Saran starred in Sivaji, the highest-grossing Tamil film at that time.
Madhvani adds personality to Neerja through her family: Her mother Rama (Shabana Azmi), father Harish (Yogendra Tiku) and two brothers absolutely adore Neerja and her zest for life.At 122-minutes, the film stretches towards the end, but you are helplessly ensnared in its magic.The writer has crafted Neerja in such a way that most of her personality traits become visible: Neerja loves Rajesh Khanna, so does her family, and this star-fan connection becomes a defining moment in the film.You just marvel at the lucidity with which it happens.It’s an effectively narrated story that we all know, for why else will you look forward to unraveling a plot that has been widely documented.
