    Verdict - Do watch it to know who Neerja was and what's her sacrifice for our country.

    NeerjaWatch trailerRelease date : February 19, 2016

    Mostly Bollywood is known for making commercial films with loads of glam and color but with less substance, every now and there comes a movie which takes you by surprise. Neerja is one such film, which is inspired from a real life story of Neerja, who saved few hundred lives aboard Pan Am flight, which gets hijacked.

    I liked the screenplay to an extent, but it could have been better. The flashback portions interlaced with the screenplay didn't make any sense with respect to the bigger picture. And the climax dragged big time and I saw a few impatient audience walking out. But I liked the way the story built tension and making the audience think what is Neerja going to do to save the people.

    Though Sonam could have done a more better job, but this is her career best performance. Shabana Azmi cake walked her role. The dudes who played the terrorists were really good especially the one who played a mad physco. Others were just ok.

    Overall, Neerja is definitely a very good film to learn about the greatest sacrifice a person can ever do. Film is well made but I hated the extended climax which really tested my patience.
