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.
Its depiction of real-life horror will strike some as exploitative, but Hotel Mumb ai remains a well-made dramatization of tragic events. An all-out assault on the senses, Hotel Mumbai will stay with you, though it’s hard to watch.
