When Bollywood became the home for meaningless movies collecting hundreds of crores and sex based vulgar films are minting money, a movie like Airlift stays on the other bay and is definitely a clean movie that treats us with emotions, action and drama.
The story revolves around a big shot Indian origin Kuwaiti businessman turns into a good Samaritan, though he exactly need not become. Akshay Kumar played the role of Ranjit Katiyal, who had plans of flying to London when Iraqi soldiers started attacking Kuwaiti people in 1990.
Ranjit turns the savior after watching the tragedy of many innocent Indians ruthlessly killed by merciless soldiers, not because he is a great human, but he unlikely takes it up, to save 1,70,000 other Indian refugees left on their won. Its all about how a businessman gets stubborn to save all of them and finally makes it with 488 flights in 59 days.
Emotions played the big role and touching scenes raise the bar to connect them to audience. The songs were not at all necessary and Nimrat Kaur, who played Ranjit’s wife character was too artificial. Akshay Kumar lived in the role and carried it to the best by sticking to reality in many scenes. Altogether, the film is a must-watch for its true story that keeps us connected to the real emotions.
Finally, Samantha Confirms The News
All these days there is no clarity about top heroine Samantha’s upcoming Tollywood films. Especially when everyone around is busy gossiping that she’s the leading girl of Ram Charan’s latest movie, she always maintained a stoic silence.

Couple of days back when the shooting of this film started in Godavari district, there is no word from Samantha if she’s flying there or landed in the location. However, finally she has shared a snapshot from the shooting spot, a picture of a sunrise.
Sharing a picture on her social blogging site, “When it feels so right #positivity #Sukumar #RC11 #beautifulindia #nofilterneeded” And that hashtag #RC11 now indeed a true confirmation from the actress that she’s the leading lady of the movie.
Directed by Sukumar, this film has Ram Charan and Samantha in the leads while Devi Sri Prasad is scoring music. The film is set in a vintage village backdrop.
