Director Ram Madhvani's Bollywood movie "Neerja" starring Sonam Kapoor, Shabana Azmi and Shekhar Ravjiani, has received positive review from the audience around the world.
"Neerja" is a biographical film, which is based on the life of Neerja Bhanot who was shot dead by terrorists. The movie revolves around the actual hijacking of Pan Am Flight 73 in Karachi, Pakistan on Sep 5, 1986. It is about how flight attendant Neerja fought for the lives of her passengers.
Saiwyn Quadras has written the script for "Neerja" in collaboration with Sanyuktha Chawla. Their screenplay is the biggest asset of the movie. Sonam Kapoor, who has played titular role Neerja Bhanot, has delivered wonderful performance, which is another highlight of the film, say the audience.
Atul Kasbekar has jointly produced "Neerja" with Shanti Sivaram Maini, Bling Unplugged and Fox Star Studios. The movie has superb production values. Vishal Khurana's music, Mitesh Mirchandani's cinematography and Monisha R Baldawa's editing are the big attractions in the technical front, add the viewers.

It's interval n what a great film #Neerja! What a superb direction! What a terrific screenplay! What a superb acting by Sonam! #Salute What a great n emotional film #Neerja and what a terrific acting by each actor! You can't afford to miss it. I give 4* to this amazing film.
#Neerja: A decent in-flight thriller which is bobbed down by some unwanted sub-plots and over-dramatic staging. Just about watchable. #Neerja: Sonam Kapoor and Shabana Azmi come up with heavy performances, though they have to cry a lot. The latter is brilliant at the end.
May god rest ur soul in peace #Neeraja what a pure soul u carried and an angelic personality â¤ Ur definitely a gr8 example of bravery Dont miss watching #Neeraja movie such a gr8 movie ... very painful and heart touching movie. #SonamKapoor at her best. Bravo !! #Shabanaazmi what a gr8 performance I cried a river #NeerjaBhanot

Interval of #Neerja ...stunned, moved and speechless!! BRILLIANT so far!!!!! Courage is not A virtue ..but The virtue!! Ram Madhvani's #Neerja is a heroic story of a girl who displayed extraordinary Courage!!! .#Neerja will make u cry n yet scaffold u with courage 2 raise voice against injustice n why 1 must nevr compromise on Self Respect! A taut screenplay by Saiwyn Quadras n brilliant direction by Ram Madhvani makes #Neerja a fascinatingly gripping movie watching experience! The strength of the director lies in d fact that he puts every1 in perspective b it #Neerja,her parents,passengers,terrorists. #Reasoning Sonam Kapoor has fought 4 what she believes,in Real life.This makes her a v credible actor whn she portrays #Neerja.Honesty comes 4m Within! Sonam has delivered performance of a lifetime.Precision is hallmark of her BRILLIANT performnce.She internalises pain,fear,courage! #Neerja Shabana Azmi is a magician actress.She always pulls up a surprise.
I liked #Neerja a lot. Engaging, well-made and well-acted for most. And a really inspiring story of true courage, selflessness & heroism.
