Rating : 4 stars

Bell Bottom is a spy thriller film inspired by true events. On 24 August 1984, ICC 691 flight takes off from Delhi and is hijacked. This is the 5th kidnapping in 7 years. In the past, hijackers landed his plane in Lahore, Pakistan, after which Pakistani authorities negotiated and managed to obtain a safe release for the passengers. This time also the flight has been hijacked and taken to Lahore. India’s Prime Minister Indira Gandhi (Lara Dutta) is all set for talks. But he is stopped by a RAW agent Anshul Malhotra aka Bell Bottom (Akshay Kumar). Bell Bottom has done a lot of research into past kidnapping incidents. He has full confidence that ISI is the mastermind of the hijack case. Indira Gandhi and her core team don’t believe her at first. But he proves them to be true. Indira Gandhi then receives a call from the President of Pakistan, Zia-ul-Haq, to ​​ask Indira if she can take the talks forward. On Bell Bottom’s advice, Indira tells Zia-ul-Haq not to talk. The President of Pakistan is shocked by this conduct. The ISI then sends one of its best men, Daljit Singh aka Dodi (Zain Khan Durrani) from Lahore to handle the hijack operation. For Bell Bottom, Dodi is someone he personally hates and has a past with. What happens next, it will be known after watching the full movie.

The story of Aseem Arora and Parvez Shaikh is brilliant and well researched. It depicts that important event in history which many people may not know about. The screenplay by Aseem Arora and Parvez Shaikh is effective and tight. Although the film could have been tighter in the first half. The dialogues are simple some of which will create frenzy in theatres. But some technical dialogues can go over the heads of the audience at large.

Ranjeet M Tiwari’s direction is excellent and he will be seen in his last film Lucknow Central. [2017] In comparison, he seems to be in superb form in this film. He tries his best to keep the film as simple and entertaining as possible. He also keeps in mind that this is a commercial film which needs to be seen by the audience across India. In this respect he is successful. The film is devoid of action or tense moments in the first half. Still, he tries to ensure that the audience is hooked to the film. The best part of the film is reserved for the second half and the climax is the best part of the film. Coming to the shortcomings of the film, the first half though is interesting but it could have been a bit better. Also, it is a 3D movie but does not have the typical 3D effects.

Bell Bottom begins with the hijack incident. Akshay Kumar’s entry is superb. The flashback part is fine; It may seem like the story is stalled but it helps viewers understand Bell Bottom’s past and answers all these questions as to why he joined RAW. Intermission point is clapping. The second half is where the agents arrive at the Dubai airport and try their best to be successful in their mission. In some places the film seems to be slipping and stretching but in the middle of the second hour it picks up again. During this, there are two twists in the story which doubles the fun of the film.

As expected, Akshay Kumar gives excellent performance. He looks dashing and plays his character brilliantly. Lara Dutta is credited in the opening credits and she is definitely one of the film’s strengths. Her scenes are dramatic and in which she gives her best. Vaani Kapoor looks lovely in a small but important role. Huma Qureshi is fine, but her character seems incomplete without a back story. Zain Khan Durrani suits the negative role. Adil Hussain looks brilliant, while Denzil Smith doesn’t get much scope. Dolly Ahluwalia (Bell Bottom’s mother) looks lovely. Mamik Singh (Ashu) is fine in his role.

The music doesn’t fit the film. ‘Khair Maang De’ and ‘Marjaavaan’ are great to watch. There is no ‘Sakhiyan 2.0’ in the film. ‘Dhoom Tara’ is like a theme song and enhances many scenes.

Daniel B George’s background score is scintillating and gives off a vintage feel. Parvez Sheikh’s action is limited but impressive. Amit Ray and Subrata Chakraborty’s production design is reminiscent of the bygone era. The dress looks real. What Vaani is wearing is attractive. The VFX is overall satisfactory, though some scenes are not as realistic as they should be. Chandan Arora’s editing is neat.

Overall, Bell Bottom is the perfect film to entertain on the big screen. Akshay Kumar, Vashu Bhagnani and the entire team of Bell Bottom are to be commended for making a film of such a large scale and releasing it in theaters in this period of pandemic, when theaters are not even open everywhere. This is certainly a commendable step to bring the film industry back on track.
