Take Off Movie Movie Review & Story Plot:

Take Off Movie Movie Story:

In 2014, a group of Malayali nurses was captured when the terrorists of ISIS took over the city of Tikrit in Iraq – the hometown of former dictator Saddam Hussein. Take Off recounts the ordeal suffered by the nurses following their capture by the extremists and the rescue operation by the Indian government to bring them back home safely.

The first half introduces us to nurse Sameera 31-year-old divorcee, who is putting a brave front trying to balance her work and family life. In between the adversities, she lets Shaheed into her life and he becomes a ray of hope.

The first half develops Sameera’s character while paying careful attention to the travails of nurses. It also shuttles between Sameera’s past and present, till she and Shaheed go to Iraq for work. So much that the movie in its first half is more of drama yet engrossing.

The interval of the 2 hours 20 min movie is at a point where the civil war in Iraq breaks out, while also serving as a turning point in the characters’ lives. How Indian ambassador Manoj Abraham and his team rescue the nurses forms the crux of the story.

In the film, we can see Parvathy as Sameera, Fahadh Faasil stars as Manoj Abraham (the Indian ambassador), Kunchacko Boban as Shaheed, Prakash Belawadi, Asif Ali as Faizal, Parvathi T and Anjali Aneesh.
