'Bollywood' and 'realism' may not go hand in hand, but this is a worthy and largely successful attempt at meaningful commercial Hindi cinema.
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.
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.
The film belongs to Akshay Kumar. He is in almost every scene and this is an author-backed role that he obviously relishes. Even if you aren't the patriotic sort, his performance is reason enough to watch the film.
Kumud Mishra's portrayal of a sympathetic civil servant is praiseworthy, as is Prakash Belawadi's as a disgruntled middle class man who can't adjust himself to the situation.
Airlift is raw and real.
If nothing else, see it to see what Akshay Kumar can do.
Airlift soars on its own merits, but it is ultimately a flight of fantasy.
Overall, Airlift is an engaging experience that resonates emotionally with the audience.
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.
