In a non Bollywood fashion, our hero fails since well, staying true to the reality of its events. Nevertheless, Although based on true events, Akshay’s character isn’t based on a single person. Blame it on the Bollywood audience, but its filmmakers couldn’t seem to let go of its garam masala and song dance paraphernalia which goes with a molar raid star in a lead role. An Arabic number can be thrown in for good measure. However, in a film which hinges on realism, its songs are jarring. Akshay impresses with his acting prowess, backed by an ensemble supporting cast involving Prakash Belawadi, Inaamulhaq, and Purab Kohli. Be it Prakash Belawadi who comes from the shape of a cynical, old man who’s Simply not prepared to acknowledge the Katiyals attempts or the Iraqi soldier who enjoys the sudden turn of power Equations or Purab Kohli’s ever committed and quiet character – they all make Airlift an even more relatable affair.

Nevertheless, Nimrat Kaur disappoints as his wife. Having seen her as the captivating housewife longing For love in The Lunchbox, her appearance since a decked-up bahu, straight from Television soap opera with a penchant for cribbing looks superficial.
