Just imagine, you are traveling in a private jet with a couple of cabin crew staff. You take a drink and sleep, and when you get up, the staff is killed, and you cannot connect with the pilot, and soon you come to know that the pilot is also killed and the plane is in an auto-pilot mode. So, what would you do to survive? Well, this is actually the basic concept of Mohit Chadda’s Flight.
Undoubtedly, the concept of the film is something unique, and writers deserve applause for that. But, the screenplay fails to keep us engaged. There are a few of ups and downs in the screenplay and that’s a negative point here. While a scene keeps us hooked, the next scene becomes a bit boring. This happens a few times in the film.
Suraj Joshi’s direction is good, and Deepak Pandey’s camera work saves the day. It makes this film visually quite good. A special mention to the VFX team as they have done a job.
Talking about performances, Mohit Chadda makes his acting comeback and we have to say that he is back with a bang. He has done an excellent job and if the film falters a bit, he saves it with his performance. Supporting actors Pavan Malhotra, Zakir Hussain, and Shibani Bedi, all have done a good job and leave a mark.
There are no songs in the film, but the background score is just perfect, and it is impactful.
On the whole, Flight is not a bad film, it’s a good film but had the potential to be better. Also, a talent like Mohit Chadda deserves a chance.
