This Friday’s release Crew is a heist comedy, starring Tabu, Kareena Kapoor Khan, and Kriti Sanon in lead roles. The trailer and the songs of the film drew positive response from the audience, taking their expectation to a new level. But does the film do justice to their expectations? Let’s find out.

Geeta Sethi (Tabu), Jasmine Bajwa (Kareena), and Divya Rana (Kriti) work as air hostesses for Kohinoor Airlines, whose chairman is Vijay Walia (Saswata Chatterjee). The airline is on the verge of bankruptcy, however, Walia’s right-hand man Manoj Mittal (Rajesh Sharma), who heads the HR department, assures everyone that all is well. The twist in the tale comes when one of the crew members, Rajvanshi, dies on a flight with gold bars strapped to his body. Geeta, Jasmine, and Divya are hell-shocked to know that the smuggling business is run by Mittal. With heavy debt on their heads and no job security in sight, the trio decides to keep the gold and smuggle it to the Gulf. Whether they succeed in their plans or not forms the crux of the story.

Crew is all about its three leading ladies, whose performances sparkle with charisma and camaraderie. Tabu, Kareena, and Kriti effortlessly infuse their roles with depth and dynamism, each bringing a unique flavour to the ensemble. Their camaraderie is palpable in every single frame, which drives the narrative forward with infectious energy.

The film’s strength also lies in its punchy dialogues and crisp narrative, keeping audiences engaged from start to finish. The comedic timing of the cast is impeccable, delivering laugh-out-loud moments with finesse. Whether it’s a witty one-liner or a slapstick scenario, Crew never fails to entertain.

However, while the first half of the film crackles with excitement and intrigue, the momentum falters slightly in the second half. The writing loses some of its sharpness, and the pacing feels uneven at times. While the climax delivers on the promised heist drama, the resolution feels somewhat rushed, leaving a lingering sense of unfulfilled potential.

Nevertheless, Crew remains a delightful romp through the world of female-driven comedy. Thanks to director Rajesh A Krishnan for a film that is a refreshing departure from the male-dominated narratives often seen in Bollywood, offering a much-needed celebration of female friendship. With its stellar performances and infectious humour, this film is sure to leave audiences smiling long after the credits roll.
