Hotel Mumbai takes a true-life terrorist attack and turns it into ‘Hotel Has Fallen’ with crap dialogue such as when the staff are told it’s okay if they go home to their familes, and one replies, “I’ve been here 35 years. THIS is my home”. Oh dear…
But as per the billing: A gripping true story of humanity and heroism, Hotel Mumbai vividly recounts the 2008 siege of the famed Taj Hotel by a group of terrorists. Among the dedicated hotel staff is the renowned chef Hemant Oberoi (Anupam Kher) and a waiter (Dev Patel – The Last Airbender), who choose to risk their lives to protect their guests. As the world watches on, a desperate couple (Armie Hammer – Call Me By Your Name, and Nazanin Boniadi – Ben Hur 2016) is forced to make unthinkable sacrifices to protect their newborn child.
Hotel Mumbai doesn’t yet have a UK or US release date so far, just a March 14th date in Australia.
