Jaipur, December 24, 2021.
It’s time for the high octane festive season to kick in and there is nothing better than a power packed Bollywood movie to keep you company. This month, Sony MAX brings to you a stellar film as its World Television Premiere with the Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Bell Bottom’. Set in the turbulent decade of the 80s, the film dwells on an undercover agent, tasked with the job of rescuing hostages following an airplane hijack, a mission that turns deadlier than he had planned for.
The film starts with Anshul Malhotra (Akshay Kumar) whose life takes an eventful turn as he joins RAW and embarks on his very first mission as Agent Bell Bottom. The stakes are high as the mission has a personal misfortune lurking over him. Not only does he need to save the lives of 210 hostages from a captive flight, but also has to disarm four hijackers while ensuring minimal fatalities. Replete with gripping twists and turns, the film pivots through the trials and tribulations of Agent Bell Bottom in his effort to free the civilians, coupled with action-packed sequences that will keep you on the edge of your seats.
In a fine blend of visual appeal and pacy background score, Bell Bottom is a complete entertainer. Directed by Ranjit Tiwari, the film also stars Lara Dutta, reprising the role of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, along with Huma Qureshi as a dynamic RAW personnel and Vaani Kapoor as Anshul’s wife Radhika.
