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 in Mumbai, India. Among the dedicated hotel staff is the renowned chef Hemant Oberoi (Anupam Kher) and a waiter (Academy Award-Nominee Dev Patel, Slumdog Millionaire) 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, "Homeland") is forced to make unthinkable sacrifices to protect their newborn child.
Still can't figure what message came out of this movie. Hotel Mumbai doesn't add anything new to the sad and tragic event. Basically, it opens up old wounds. We can only wish that Indian government will learn from this and train their local police while their trained fighters take days to arrive to save humans. I couldn't figure if I should hate the fact that terrorist got into the hotel or should I get upset with the Indian fighters to take days to only arrive by the hotel. The movie was just useless.
Super slow paced and boring. It was hard to keep my interest in the story or the characters. May be okay to watch on streaming when there is no options available.
I wasted my time in watching a cliche movie that is so boring and is a remake of other films. The Indian actors did not act well and the action in the movie is only for minutes. Hotel Mumbai is based on the 2009 documentary Surviving Mumbai about the Mumbai attacks in 2008 at the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in India. If you wanna waste your time,see this movie!.
Not sure why some people found this movie Boring, it's a very intense, realistic and gritty film to watch. The acting was done well. Kudos to the director !!
If you watched this you maybe wondering why don't everyone in the hotel just go out of the hotel in the first place instead of moving to chambers lounge, they have about 2.5 hours (movie time) or 12 hours (time that took place in the movie). At the end, they finally decided to go out from emergency stairs to outside, by then, again, because of plot, a stupid guest manages to call a news staff (how?) and reveal everyone's location. Everyone's death in this movie is either by their own mistake or just simply misfortune. The American lady that got shot by the emergency stair, she went out herself after badly injured just to get herself killed. Everyone could have just go outside in the first 30 minutes in the movie, instead they lock themselves on chambers lounge on the sixth floor, don't understand why.
