Hotel Mumbai

The gripping true story of the attack on the Taj Hotel

Hotel Mumbai, by Anthony Maras, viscerally depicts the real-life terrorist attacks by the Islamist militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba which killed more than 160 people in Mumbai, India, in November 2008.

Poster for the terrifying true story Hotel MumbaiThe film focusses on the group’s most publicized assault, on the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, and revolves around an ensemble of hotel guests (including a wealthy architect, played by Armie Hammer, and his young family) and employees (notably a heroic waiter, played by Dev Patel) as they fight against their captors and try to escape.

It is a chilling thriller, employing high-wire tension to impressive effect, all the while highlighting the small acts of bravery that can occur when people are victims of large-scale violence. An all-out assault on the senses, Hotel Mumbai will stay with you, even if it is hard to watch at times.
