The film is beautifully made and keeps the drama alive in the first half and then loses steam in the second half and ends on a high emotional note.

The film might be about the late Neerja Bhanot, but the strongest cinematic bits are those involving Neerja's family.Neerja is ultimately a family's film. Go for it if you are in the mood for a good cry.

Minus the songs and the excessive schmaltz, 'Neerja' could have been outstanding. But still, the film holds, and hold us with it. Sonam Kapoor makes us believe she is, was, Neerja

Neerja Review RatingShubhra Gupta (The Indian Express) | Read Full Review

Defying every norm laid down in the mainstream Bollywood rule-book, Neerja coaxes a riveting two-hour drama out of a real-life tale of extraordinary courage. It is a powerful story that tugs gently and delicately at the heartstrings.

The film arrives straight to the point and starts building a tension that remains with the audience till the end. Here, the power of a good script is also evident.

Neerja Review RatingRohit Vats (Hindustan Times) | Read Full Review

The USP of Neerja is its realism and low-key tone. It is the seeming lack of effort to build up melodrama that makes this such an intense, suspenseful and emotionally consuming viewing experience.

Ram Madhvani has crafted a story that will move the coldest of hearts. Nothing much happens in the film, action-wise, per se. The story finds an able complement in the cast.In all, drop everything else and go watch Neerja. This is a story that everyone needs to see.

Shivaraj Nair
Neerja is a fairly competent recycling of real events, given an additional interest for trying to show audience that Sonam Kapoor can act. Director Ram did a good job by injecting fear and thrill into a well known story. Costumes and set almost matched 1986 and technical side did their part. The terrorists were unpredictable and brutal, Jim sarbh's khaleel was the best.
If you are aware of the real story that inspired this film, you may not feel the thrill. But still it manages a smooth landing
