Man on the Phone: [speaking in Punjabi] You feel strong. You feel calm. There is no fear in your heart. Look across at your brothers... and see me in their eyes. You are all like sons to me. I am with you. God is with you. Paradise awaits you. God is great.

Excruciating Violence Creates Palpable Tension
21 June 2019 | by AudioFileZSee all my reviews

Ignore the negative reviews. This movie creates a horrific tension of senseless violent death dealt by brainwashed drones of a hijacked group of young zealots. It's down to good versus evil as closely to how it played out while still being a movie. It gets across the paralyzing uncertainly of those spared the initial wave of killing as to what to do next. Hotel Mumbai is a tense and excruciating emotional ride soon enough as the slow start is soon forgotten. The civilized world is far too often simply not prepared, often in a state of denial. Tragedy arrives just as shown here - and there's no do-over making this a painfully important film with a steep learning curve. I hope everyone sees this.
