Neerja is one of the most anticipated films of this year. Directed by Ram Madhvani and produced by Atul Kasbekar, Fox and two other banners, the film has generated a lot of hype. The filmmakers have reportedly spent three crores on the biopic, and have done extensive research to make sure that the film looks authentic. The journey of an ill-fated PanAm flight across India, Pakistan, USA and Libya has been documented with precision. If you’ve watched the trailer, you already know that Sonam Kapoor‘s portrayal of the braveheart Neerja Bhanot offers us lovely insight into the life of Neerja. Here are 4 reasons why you have to watch the story of the 23-year-old who saved 359 lives.  

Neerja Bhanot’s Story
The woman was extraordinary, and one would have had to be, in order to showcase the kind of courage she did. Her story needs to be told and brought to the public. An air-hostess and a model, she lay down her life so that others could live. In the face of life-threatening danger, Neerja proved that strength lies not in size but in character.
Sonam Kapoor and Shabana Azmi have much to offer in their portrayal of Neerja and her mother, respectively. Shabana Azmi is a fine actress and we are sure Sonam will shine in her role as the dauntless Neerja.

Indian Cinema Coming Off Age 
Indian cinema is changing its course and the audience expects better movies with more engaging content that not only entertains but adds substance. More and more woman-centric films are being seen, and Neerja’s intrepid story is just what we need.
Inspiration In Today’s World
Neerja offers us inspiration. In the face of unfazed acts of cruelty, this is one story that must be remembered. The film has piqued our interest and we are sure it’ll be as gripping as the trailer was.
