Critic Reviews for Airlift

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (2)

  • 'Bollywood' and 'realism' may not go hand in hand, but this is a worthy and largely successful attempt at meaningful commercial Hindi cinema.

  • Airlift transports its characters the 2,500 miles back to their promised land, as history demands, but I wouldn't trust its underlying nationalism as far as I could throw it.

  • It's one thing to identify these numbers. It's another to give these digits a human face - complete with a beating heart, and a language that everyone can understand.

    February 7, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Valid questions perhaps that come riding on jingoism, all wrapped up in the tricolour. Airlift would have been a better film without this nationalistic bluster but has a bigger potential at the box office now with the Republic Day just round the corner.

  • Airlift features Akshay at his best -- based on real-life characters, there's little khiladi-wala swag in Akshay's performance and more mature control.

    October 30, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Though an action-packed story, Airlift's strength lies in the turbulent emotions of people at the mercy of each other's generosity and self-preservation.
