About Bell Bottom Movie:

  • Bell Bottom is inspired from real life hijacking events in India by Khalistani terrorists during the 1980s, such as the Indian Airlines Flight 423, 405, and 421 hijackings.
  • The film was officially announced in November 2019.
  • Principal photography was completed in a one-shot schedule from 20 August to 30 September 2020 in Glasgow, Scotland and London.
  • It became the first film to begin shooting post COVID-19 pandemic in India.
  • The film was banned in three Gulf countries, namely Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar.
  • The film certification authorities banned it on grounds of tampering with historical facts. It was pointed out that the 1984 incident actually had the United Arab Emirates Defence Minister Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and the UAE authorities getting the hijackers, while the film portrayed Kumar’s character and his team as the real heroes of the mission.
  • Bell Bottom was released in theatres on 19 August 2021 in 3D. The film received mixed reviews from critics, with praise for Kumar’s and Dutta’s performance, art direction, fast-paced narration, screenplay, background music & cinematography but criticism for the low quality VFX shots in action sequences and weak climax. Such mixed reviews, combined with the second wave of COVID-19 and the ensuing lockdown across various states, made it a major commercial failure.
  • It was released on Amazon Prime Video on 16 September, and in Maharashtra cinemas on 22 October 2021.
