Geeta Sethi (Tabu), Jasmine Bajwa (Kareena Kapoor Khan) and Divya Rana (Kriti Sanon) work in the crew department of Kohinoor Airlines, which is on the brink of bankruptcy. Despite working hard every day, the trio is fed up with not getting their salaries and very little commission in return. Life presents them with an opportunity with gold bars and the ladies decide to make the most of it. But will their choices land them in the heaven of their dreams or a prison of hell? We find out what happens everything in the end.

Crew Movie Review: Script Analysis

Nidhi Mehra and Mehul Suri wrote this lighthearted heist comedy and gave us an easy-breezy story that’s missing from Bollywood nowadays. The film opens with Geeta, Jasmine, and Divya being questioned by customs officials over the missing illegal gold. We’re then shown a long flashback of everything that led to these circumstances.

Geeta is a housewife with dreams to make life better, Jasmine wants to have all the best things in life, and Divya wants to put an end to her lies and make her parents happy. But even though they put in a lot of honest and diligent effort by flying and serving their passengers every day, their aspirations never take off.

The first half of Crew is a delightful ascend into the tragic lives and crooked decisions of our leading ladies. You never judge them for anything they do, especially considering how Kohinoor Chairman Vijay Walia (Saswata Chatterjee) takes no effort to save his airline and the jobs of thousands of employees. With flashbacks showing how the smuggling starts and how the girls eventually get to enjoy everything they’ve always desired, the first half keeps you engrossed and thrilled.

Crew takes a little serious tone in the second half, but there are still sufficient hysterical moments to keep you laughing. Moreover, the friendship between Tabu, Kareena, and Kriti’s characters adds to more enjoyment. It’s the actresses and their exquisite and confident screen presence that make you root for them. You find yourself leaving the movie theatre with a broad smile on your face as the payout is really great.

Crew Movie Review: Star Performance

It’s evident that Tabu, Kriti Sanon, and Kareena Kapoor Khan enjoyed their time together tremendously. As Geeta, Tabu skillfully strikes a balance between the dreams and audacity when needed, and the modesty and nervousness of a middle-class woman. For an actress like her, portraying these characters comes naturally. Throughout, Kareena Kapoor Khan radiates elegance and sass. She displays the wickedness needed for a story like this and looks dazzling in every shot. Bebo is quite relatable, as her character would do anything to keep herself happy!

Working alongside two remarkable actresses with such a terrific experience isn’t an easy task. However, Kriti Sanon delivers yet another fantastic performance as Divya Rana. She effortlessly weaves her charm into the narrative and captivates you with her incredible performance. Diljit Dosanjh and Kapil Sharma make a special appearance and leave a charming impact with their performances.

Crew Movie Review: Direction, Music

As someone who is a big fan of Lootcase (2020), I had hopes that Rajesh Krishnan would deliver another entertaining film. Rajesh’s confidence in the story is visible as he makes you laugh even with the most absurd moments. The director seemed acquainted thoroughly with the strengths of his leading ladies and made sure to put them to the best use. Krishnan is not interested in preaching to us about right or wrong. He only focused on treating us with an entertaining ride throughout, and he delivered!

The movie has several songs, but my first favourite is Ghagra. It comes at such a wonderful moment in the film where our ladies are just unabashedly themselves. There’s a fun rendition of Sona Kitna Sona song, and the entire sequence becomes more amusing also because of this track.

Crew Movie Review: The Last Word

Overall, Crew is a riveting and enjoyable heist comedy and takes you on a journey filled with laughter. Much like the smooth landing of flights in the film, the jokes land gracefully, keeping you hooked from start to end. Tabu, Kareena, and Kriti shine with their remarkable performances and entertain you with playful chemistry. You’ll cheer for them after all; our girls just want to have fun!

Three and a half stars!
