What's it about
Ranveer Malhotra (Mohit Chadda) is your typical filmy guy who has been bitten by the Bollywood bug. So much so, that he often uses famous dialogues from iconic films in the style of the characters.

With his heart in the right place, Ranveer decides to go solo and takes a flight to Dubai for a meeting that can aide his investigation. Alas, Ranveer’s plane gets hijacked!

Flight is just the perfect cinematic experience that audience had been waiting to watch on the big screen. Be it the story, performances or the visual effects – it all ensures an immersive experience. A well-written story is complemented by crisp editing and the makers have stayed away from using the routine cliches of Bollywood films just for the sake of it. Moreover, Mohit Chadda is comfortable in front of the camera and his character is designed to be real and relatable which instantly strikes a chord. Right from his fixation with Bollywood, to exposing his vulnerabilities to the way he handles himself in challenging situations – Mohit’s character Ranveer is very close to reality instead of being a dare-devil, invincible superhero-esque being, and that is a big win. While Flight is highly stylish when it comes to the production and cinematography, in tune with films of this genre, the makers have kept the nuances of the lead and other characters in the film realistic and believable.
Along with the male lead, Flight boasts of a stellar support cast. We wish we could see more from them during the course of the movie.
Flight is a film that you’d love watching in the theatres. It has drama, action, great performances, and a story that will keep you engaged till the very last frame. It is the perfect entertainment and escape from the stressful times we have been in and are still grappling to come out of. Treat yourself to Flight this long weekend, as the character Ranveer would have said in his filmy style, ‘kya pata, kal theatre mein koi acchi film ho na ho’.
