VASUDHA PANSARE shares her two favourites for this week.
What a fabulous film!! Based on a true incident which happened on January 15th 2009, it captures the Miracle on the Hudson. On this day US Airways pilot Chesley Sullenberger or Captain Sully amazed the world by successfully landing a plane in the Hudson river, shortly after take off and saving all the 155 people on board. Both the engines of the plane had been disabled by a bird strike. Tom Hanks as Captain Sully lives the role and the other characters also are outstanding. In the investigation that takes place after the successful river landing, there are questions about whether the Captain could have returned to one of the nearby airports. But the issue is resolved through precise simulation. The film is quite a classic. Do watch this complete entertainer. It is absolutely a perfect thriller directed by Clint Eastwood.
