Bell Bottom movie review: The much anticipated spy-thriller film Bell Bottom is finally out in theatres today. In the film, actor Akshay Kumar plays a RAW (Research and Analysis Wing) agent who embarks on a covert mission to free 210 hostages held by hijackers. The film is said to be based on a real incident that took place in the 80s in India. The Ranjit M Tewari directorial released in theatres in 3D as well. Also starring Vaani Kapoor, Lara Dutta and Huma Qureshi in pivotal roles, Bell Bottom is the first big Hindi film to release in theatres nationwide after the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic forced cinemas to shut down. Viewers are now taking to Twitter to share their opinion on the film.
The film made headlines after Lara Dutta’s makeover as former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi went viral earlier this month. While fans were taken by the Don 2 actor’s unrecognisable transformation, Dutta told Indianexpress.com that she herself couldn’t believe in it, after checking it out in the mirror. Inspired by the true events of the 1984 Indian Airlines Airbus A300 hijacking, Bell Bottom is the first Hindi film to be filmed at Glasgow, Scotland, during the pandemic.
