Hotel Mumbai is based on the true story of the indomitable human spirit that prevailed during the brutal 26/11 terrorist attacks on the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in Mumbai in 2008.
Starring Dev Patel, Anupam Kher, Armie Hammer in pivotal roles, the film’s thrilling trailer portrays the triumph of humanity.
Helmed by Anthony Maras and co-written by Maras and John Collee, the film has been lauded for sensitively depicting the story during the festival rounds.
The official synopsis of Hotel Mumbai reads- “72-hour siege, 1600 lives saved. An incredible true story of bravery, courage & heroism, told from a never-seen-before lens. Meet India’s heroes in the official trailer of Zee Studios & Purpose Entertainment.”
The trailer shows Anupam Kher and Dev Patel’s characters from the film, with the help of other staff members in the hotel, saving the lives of their guests. One of the character actors in the trailer even says, “Guest is God.”
Dev and Anupam look fierce and petrified, calm and scared at the same during the course of the trailer of Hotel Mumbai. Although a number of films have been made based on the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel attacks of Mumbai in 2008, this one offers to put things in a different light.
The film is all set to hit the screens in India on November 29, 2019
