Hotel Mumbai Story
Hotel Mumbai is a Bollywood action-drama, helmed by Anthony Maras. The movie was earlier premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2018. Hotel Mumbai is based on true events.
Inspired by the 2009 documentary 'Surviving Mumbai', 'Hotel Mumbai' begins with a few young male jihadists making their way towards the city of Mumbai through water while a radical voice guides them over the phone to execute a deadly attack. Meanwhile, Arjun (Dev Patel) shares some tender moments with his baby and pregnant wife before rushing to the Taj Mahal Palace where he works as a waiter.
After getting reprimanded by the Head Chief Hemant Oberoi (Anupam Kher) for his improper footwear, Dev begins his shift at work. Among the guests who are stationed at the hotel, include David Duncan and Zahra (Armie Hammer and Nazanin Boniadi), an influential couple along with their nanny Sally (Tilda Cobham-Hervey). There's a Russian playboy Vasili (Jason Isaacs) as well who has some wild plans for the evening.
Things take a barbaric turn when the terrorists enter the Taj Mahal Hotel and begin their hate-fuelled massacre.
