Crew Review: An Entertaining Escapade of Mischief

Crew, about three air hostesses who get tired of being ripped off and decide to do the ripping, moves at jet speed.


Geeta (Tabu), Jasmine (Kareena Kapoor Khan) and Divya (Kriti Sanon) work for Kohinoor Airlines, which has stacked up massive debts under its flashy owner Vijay Walia (Saswata Chatterjee). The professional poise expected from the women is in serious danger of cracking under the pressure of unpaid salaries and mounting bills. Kohinoor is going to go belly-up, forcing the women to resort to crime.

Thoughts On The Film:

Through its storyline, “Crew” captures the frustration and helplessness experienced by many middle-class individuals who feel trapped in their jobs despite their desire for change. It portrays the everyday struggles of ordinary people trying to navigate a system that often favors the wealthy.

Despite the desire to quit, they continue working due to various obligations, including financial security. Kareena Kapoor delivers an impressive performance, portraying a carefree character, while Tabu shines despite having a less defined role.

Unlike Bollywood’s recent trend of historical or propaganda films, “Crew” offers lighthearted entertainment without any underlying agenda. It focuses on a heist story involving three middle-class women seeking revenge on the wealthy.

The film’s screenplay lacks the necessary spark to elevate it beyond its drawbacks, with sporadic attempts at humor falling short.

The story revolves around three air hostesses who seize an opportunity for financial gain after their supervisor dies during a flight. However, their pursuit of wealth comes with unforeseen challenges.

Tabu, Kareena Kapoor, and Kriti Sanon play the lead roles, each representing different struggles faced by middle-class women. They navigate through personal and professional challenges, determined to change their fate.

The film introduces various themes, including financial struggles, aspirations, and friendship. However, it fails to sustain momentum, losing steam in the second half. Despite its shortcomings, “Crew” offers moments of entertainment, especially with Diljit Dosanjh‘s cameo appearance. However, it falls short of delivering a truly impactful narrative.
