'Neerja' is one of India's finest hijack based film presented in total thrilling and emotional manner. It narrates the tale of the unsung hero and deserves to be watched and respected by every Indian.4/5full review

The feeling that you're being manipulated ' rather than feeling genuinely invested in what's going on ' pops up a few times too. But these are minor complaints in what is evidently a well-intentioned, heartfelt film that remembers a real hero.3.5/5full review

These scenes are wonderfully juxtaposed. The passengers on board and the four terrorists along with the flight crew all add to the canvas to make NEERJA a moving watch. Towards the end, there's a flood of tears that you cannot control and you heart reaches out to her parents.5/5full review

Neerja - Movie Review & Rating: Ram Madhvani's 'Neerja' is a deeply moving experience. Sonam Kapoor is very sincere throughout and is amazingly in control in most of the scenes. In what could be undoubtedly her best performance till date, Sonam manages to turn her 'weaknesses' to work for her in this film4.5/5full review

A 23-year old youngster proves that she has maturity beyond her age, and she has accepted her destiny. Sounds unbelievable? Then watch Neerja to believe it and come home not to ponder over it; sometimes a one-time watch is so heavy on you…4.25/5full review

On the whole, NEERJA is a must watch ode to the youngest recipient of the highest civilian honour Ashok Chakra for displaying extraordinary courage and human kindness. It is a film that will make you stand up for what's genuinely Right without bothering about nationality, religion, sex, cast or colour of the skin. Most importantly as a movie watching experience, you'll be glued to the movie screen with tears and admiration welling up in your eyes. NEERJA is a movie that will make you a better pe4/5full review

Sonam Kapoor is the star of this searing biopic. It all begins on September 5, 1986, when the ill fated Pan Am Flight 73 takes off from Mumbai. Sonam Kapoor stars as Neerja.4/5full review

Neerja movie review: Sonam Kapoor's terrific hijacking drama will leave you teary-eyed!. As everyone knows, Neerja is based on the brave airhostess who lost her life saving many others during the unforgettable Pan Am hijacking of 1986. When it comes to hijacking dramas, the first and the best film that comes to my mind is United 93, a terrifying drama set on the only flight that crashed on an empty paddock during the infamous 9/11 attacks. As far as I can remember, Bollywood's last attempt in th4/5full review

Neerja Review: A career-best portrayal by Sonam Kapoor captures a true hero's grit - Courage – it’s a virtue everyone possesses; only a few choose to use it. Neerja Bhanot was one of them and that’s what makes her life so remarkable.4/5full review

Sonam Kapoor makes us believe she is, was, Neerja. The question was always going to be, can Sonam Kapoor, carry off that demanding role? Answer is yes.3/5full review

Movie review 'Neerja': The daughter overpowers the saviour. Madhwani’s film tells Neerja’s personal story well, the professional not so much.2.5/5full review
Neerja review: A story well worth telling, this is Sonam Kapoor's best performance to date. The USP of Neerja is its realism and low-key tone. Everything unfolding on screen feels like something that must surely have happened off screen.full review
