Neerja, maximum of you must have watched the Movie by this time. But if you haven’t then here are the reasons why you should go for a movie like this one.
To know a woman like Neerja Bhanot. She was an amazing blend of beauty, brain and unmatched courage, who became the youngest recipient of Ashok Chakra, India’s highest peacetime military award for bravery.
Ashok Chakra Citation reads as:
“Her loyalties to the passengers of the aircraft in distress will forever be a lasting tribute to the finest qualities of the human spirit”.
To realize that there is no fixed time to pay back your debts towards mother nation. There may be times or some unexpected circumstances where all we will need is to remain loyal to our motherland without giving it a second thought. The movie Neerja is a tribute to brave Neerja Bhanot. Who, while discharging her duty as a flight attendant in Pan Am Flight 73 was shot dead by gang of terrorists.
To see the beautiful bond between a mother and her daughter. How a daughter even if she is grown-up remain the same little girl to her mother who is fussy about everything and acts as a super mature person at times while taking care of her mother. Shabana Azmi is really admirable while playing as Rama Bhanot, Neerja’s mother.
To know that how love, affection, kindness, patience and courage to take stand against what is wrong can define a person when things are adverse. You can always be good to someone when situation are right and favorable, but remaining kind, affectionate, patient and brave when situations are against you is what defines a person. The extraordinary courage shown by an ordinary girl Neerja, became the life saving factor for hundreds of passengers in the hijacked Pan Am Flight.
To watch Sonam Kapoor act flawlessly. If you are a stubborn critique of Sonam’s acting skills then this movie is going to change your perceptions about her. Sonam has came out to prove with her acting in Neerja that she is definitely able to pull off a timeless character like Neerja Bhanot while remaining a fashionista and a style icon at the same time.
It will also teach women that there is never too late to walk out of a marriage which can’t give you a life full of dignity and self respect. Where you don’t have an identity of yourself, where you don’t get love and support, where you are being looked down upon for everything you do and you are being treated as nothing more than a house help. Step ahead and you are always good to give a second chance to your life.
Neerja will make you realize that only person who holds you back from pursuing your dreams is you. Come out of your own shackles, break the chains, make decisions, take a brave move and you will rarely face any hurdle on the way to your dreams. Courage has no substitute.
