Rajesh A. Krishnan’s latest venture, ‘Crew,’ propels us into a high-flying world of intrigue and empowerment. After the delightful caper of his debut film ‘Lootcase,’ Krishnan’s sophomore effort, ‘Crew,’ takes off with breakneck speed.

Meet Geeta (Tabu), Jasmine (Kareena Kapoor Khan), and Divya (Kriti Sanon), the dynamic trio of air hostesses working for Kohinoor Airlines. But behind the glamorous facade lies a harsh reality – their employer, Vijay Walia (Saswata Chatterjee), is bleeding the airline dry, leaving his employees grappling with unpaid wages and mounting debts. Faced with the imminent collapse of Kohinoor, the women decide to take matters into their own hands.

Navigating through a turbulent sky of moral ambiguity, the trio finds themselves entangled with the relentless airport inspector Mala (Trupti Khamkar). The film cleverly echoes real-life struggles of underpaid workers in the airline industry, striking a chord with audiences who yearn for justice in an unjust world.

The screenplay, penned by Nidhi Mehra and Mehul Suri, wastes no time in establishing the distinct personalities of its protagonists before seamlessly weaving them into a cohesive unit. Geeta, the seasoned veteran with a penchant for pills; Jasmine, the rule-bending idealist; and Divya, the quiet powerhouse – each character brings a unique flavor to the ensemble.

Fuelled by the impeccable chemistry of Tabu, Kareena Kapoor Khan, and Kriti Sanon, ‘Crew’ soars to new heights. Their camaraderie breathes life into even the most improbable scenarios, making the audience root for their audacious scheme against Vijay Walia.

Despite the spotlight on its leading ladies, ‘Crew’ doesn’t overshadow its supporting cast. With standout performances from Diljit Dosanjh, Kapil Sharma, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, and Charu Shankar, the film ensures that every character leaves a lasting impression.

While ‘Crew’ occasionally rushes towards its destination, director Rajesh A. Krishnan ensures that his heroines shine through as relatable, multifaceted individuals. Smart, self-assured, and always supportive of each other, Geeta, Jasmine, and Divya carve out a place in our hearts long after the credits roll.

In the end, ‘Crew’ isn’t just a movie – it’s a thrilling ride that celebrates the resilience and camaraderie of women in the face of adversity.
