The politics of war are a difficult subject to depict on television. One can go overboard with jingoism, as many major films have done. You may even try your hand at creating a realistic and exciting dish. BellBottom, starring Akshay Kumar, offers us more than simply fantastic entertainment in this setting. BellBottom is reportedly based on real-life operations and people set in the late 1970s and early 1980s, when seven Indian Airlines planes were hijacked from India in a five-year period, however the disclaimer before the movie states that all characters and events in the film are fictional.

The passion of a decent patriotic Indian hero for his homeland has no boundaries. Only his love for his ‘bebe’ can give it a chance to compete. Our BellBottom is given a loving mother, who suffers a tragic end in one hijacking, but our hero has an opportunity to revenge both in another. What could be better than two for the price of one Pakistani hijacker? What we have is a shabby narrative that highlights our hero’s adventures, with the actual hijacking crammed into a brief yet exciting part. The whole review may be found here. IMDB
