Hotel Mumbai is a hard-hitting story of how a lion-hearted chef and his loyal kitchen staff risked their lives to protect the guests at a popular 5-star hotel in Mumbai – 34 unsung heroes saving 1600 lives at stake.

Starring Dev Patel, Armie Hammer, Nazanin Boniadi, Anupam Kher, Vipin Sharma, Jason Isaacs, Suhail Nayyar, Tilda Cobham-Hervey, Natasha Liu-Bordizzo and Nagesh Bhosle, the critically-acclaimed film holds an approval rating of 76% on Rotten Tomatoes and a 7.6 rating on IMDb.

Its depiction of real-life horror will strike some as exploitative, but Hotel Mumbai remains a well-made dramatization of tragic events.
