There are many 'unsung heroes in the country of India, whose inspiring stories few people know about. And especially the people associated with the country's RAW agency always remain anonymous. Their exploits are always locked in files. Similarly, the story of 'Unsung Hero' has been brought by "Lucknow Central" fame filmmaker Ranjit M Tiwari in his super thriller "Bellbottom", which can be seen in theaters from August 19. This story is based on the true events of the 1984 hijacking of Indian Airlines Flight IC 421 @ Hijack.


This story is about a RAW agent's courage, intelligence, and courage, due to which not only all the passengers of the hijacked plane are saved alive, but the terrorists who hijacked that plane are also caught. The background of the film is in the eighties when the Prime Minister of the country used to be Indira Gandhi (Lara Dutta). This was the period when Pakistan pretended friendship with India after the 1971 defeat. But in the eighties, five Indian planes were hijacked in seven years and every time the hijacked plane was taken to Lahore city of Pakistan. Every time the name of some Indian organization used to come up. Every time while making a pact, Pakistan used to get crores of rupees to those terrorists along with getting rid of some terrorists. Whereas India felt that the Pak government helped. Pak gets rid of such a hijacked airplane in this way, but Anshul Malhotra (Akshay Kumar), who is expertise in everything, had to lose his mother (Dolly Ahluwalia). This pain of Anshul makes him a RAW agent. While he was thinking of clearing the UPSC exam while leading a happy life after marrying Radhika (Vani Kapoor). His wife Radhika was working in MTNL. But the chief of RAW, thinking of making Anshul's pain his strength, prepares Anshul to become an agent of 'RAW' in his own style and his codename in 'RAW' is 'Bell Bottom'. He vows to expose the role of Pakistan's Intelligence Bureau (IAS) behind the hijacked planes by taking the lead in the country's security.

On 24 August 1984, the plane with 210 passengers is hijacked again. First, the hijackers land this plane in Amritsar, but after some time they take it to Lahore. It does not take long for the news of the hijacking to reach Delhi. Prime Minister Indira Gandhi (Lara Dutta) immediately holds a meeting with high officials and ministers. Government ministers again advise negotiating through Pakistan. But RAW officer (Adil Hussain) advises Prime Minister Indira Gandhi to meet RAW agent bellbottom Anshul (Akshay Kumar) once. Indira Gandhi calls Bellbottom. On Akshay Kumar's advice, she tells Pakistan's Prime Minister Zia-ul-Haq not to talk to the kidnappers. Due to this, Pak gets angry and sends the plane to Dubai, because the hijackers are only IAS officers. Regardless of the resistance of the priests, Indira Gandhi, this time entrusts the responsibility of saving the lives of 210 passengers to Bellbottom. Bellbottom begins work on it with the help of four of his fellow RAW agents. Where he takes the help of a woman (Huma Qureshi) in Dubai. But this mission turns out to be quite complicated. Many turns and effects in the story made it more interesting.

Writing and Direction:

Ranjeet M Tiwari has given a great introduction to his directorial skills on a strong screenplay by Aseem Arora and Parvez Sheikh. But the biggest weak link of this film is Lara Dutta, who plays Indira Gandhi. But the director is also responsible for this to some extent. While doing Lara Dutta's prosthetic makeup for Indira Gandhi's look, the entire team focused on the 'nose'. Did not pay attention to the overall look. Secondly, the power and status that Indira Gandhi had in her voice are also lacking. The way Indira Gandhi used to talk to her ministers or officials was forgotten. The film is a bit weak before the interval, but much better after the interval. Some cheeky dialogues of the film attract the audience towards itself. The director kept the thrill alive till the end. The turn of the character of Radhika i.e. Vaani Kapoor shown at the end of the film is amazing. The music of the film is also a weak link. But the film can be seen. People troubled due to the Corona epidemic will also get some pleasure by seeing 'bellbottom'.


Akshay Kumar has done a great job in the character of Anshul Malhotra i.e. Bellbottom. Like his last few films, Akshay Kumar is also the 'poster boy of patriotism in this film, but did not raise patriotic slogans in it. Not only this, Akshay Kumar has presented the character of Anshul Malhotra in a different way. As RAW Agent Bellbottom on screen, he manages to create excitement on screen. Actor Adil Hussain as a RAW officer once again enthralls the audience with his performance. The chemistry of Adil Hussain and Akshay Kumar is tremendous. Lara Dutta does not fit in the role of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. By the way, in some scenes, Lara Dutta has caught the gesture and gait shield of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. Vaani Kapoor manages to make her presence felt even in the small role of Radhika. Huma Qureshi's part also did not have much to do, but her performance in this film was less. Not much screen space was found on the screen, but despite this, she leaves an impression. Zain Khan Durrani is fine in the role of terrorist.
