The upcoming Hindi language spy thriller film “Bell Bottom” follow the chapter of Indian history, it is dealing with while reading about the period between 1971 and 1984 you realize that India was under constant social turmoil everything from wars to civil unrest there were a lot of problems we were dealing with as a country the several hijacking cases that took place with respect to Indian airlines since 1971 consumed that decade bell bottom exposed the time where there was extreme civil unrest in Punjab and the hijacking attempt by the extremist groups that seek for Khalistan in august of 1984. The domestic flight from Chandigarh to Srinagar was taken to Lahore and eventually to Dubai with hundred passengers on board. The mission to get civilians out safe and the negotiations that took place in Dubai the careful planning between India and the defence minister of UAE to capture the hijackers who demanded to be taken to USA and bring them back to Indian soil.
This movie actually focusing on bell bottom is an agent espionage thriller based on real events with many creative liberties starring Akshay kumar so as to showcase how one man with the help of several factions of course orchestrates an extremely complex rescue mission.
What is good and bad aspects of the film? the romantic angle and personal insight, the need for a romantic angle or interest in such type of film see this movie is not a biopic on the person that akshay kumar is playing. This is not shershaah where an in-depth look into his personal life is essential. Vani Kapoor, restricted to a romantic track and being the wife who opens the door for her husband and gets the food ready while the makers try to inculcate the thought in our heads that she was important all along.
Bell bottom VFX effects, scepticism that we had of some of the looks in the trailer is evident in the film as well the problematic special effects that look cartoonish in the trailer are magnified in this case on the big screen while the film and its visuals are not jarring to the point of completely overwhelming. Indira Gandhi is played by lara dutta, i am still in shock of the skilful makeup done by Colette ford and the team Nena from partner and Aisha from dawn. Same for Lara dutta, it tells you the magic and skills that prosthetics and makeup can do to transform and change people so drastically to the point of not being recognizable.
Romantic number Marjaawaan is sung beautifully by Gurnazar Singh and Asees Kaur playing in the conclusion also encapsulates the melancholic and heartfelt concluding moments of the film. The highlight however has to be the background music composed by Daniel B. George and kicks the right moment. Denzel smith is terribly wasted in this film appearing in most of the scenes where there is a core meeting but having little to no dialogues. Huma Qureshi appears in an extended cameo but does as the script requires and she makes her presence felt every time it is indra gandhi who really impressed me there is a sense of confidence showcased by her in front of camera.
