Eros International and Alumbra Entertainment's The Attacks Of 26/11 (A) narrates the Bombay joint commissioner of police's (Nana Pate*kar) account of the terrorist attacks on the city on 26th November, 2008. The film begins with the joint commissio*ner recounting the events of the dreaded night in front of a committee. It ends with the hanging of the sole terrorist, Ajmal Kasab (Sanjeev Jaiswal), who was arrested. The film shows in graphic detail the killings by terrorists at several land*marks of Bombay in*cluding Leopold Café, Taj Mahal Hotel, CST Station, Cama Hospital and other places. It also shows how Ajmal Kasab was arrested and ultimately the end that awaited him.
Rommel Rodrigues has penned a story based on true-life incidents and his screenplay is fast-paced and en*grossing. While some scenes are chilling and leave the audience staring in disbelief, there are others which evoke claps. Instances of the clapworthy scenes are: the one in which constable Tukaram Ombale (Sunil Jadhav) lays down his life but does not let go of Ajmal Kasab; the one in which the joint police commissioner lectures Ajmal Kasab in the morgue where dead bodies of his (Kasab's) terrorist-friends are lying; the one in which he forces Kasab to embrace a dead body; the one in which he hurls the choicest abuses at Kasab; the one in which he explains to Kasab what is written in the Quran; etc.
