Crew Movie Review


Three ordinary air hostesses of Kohinoor Airlines – Jasmine, Divya and Geeta have been working relentlessly for 6 months without being paid. However, their flight hits turbulence when they discover their boss has gold biscuits with him. As they take a flight and embark on a journey to pursue their dreams, they find themselves caught up in unexpected misfortunes. Amid their broken lives, they have another matter to deal with which will take you through ups and downs.

What’s good about Crew

Glamour quotient: Rhea Kapoor, the producer of the movie Crew, has ensured that the glamour quotient is quite high. Her previous movies like Thank You For Coming and Veere Di Wedding were known for their high fashion and Crew is no different. Despite being portrayed as three broke girls, the fashion and costumes worn by Kareena, Tabu and Kriti are stunning. The fashion is so top-notch that it might make you feel underdressed and poor. Every frame of the movie looks stylish and spectacular, thanks to the trendy clothes that have been showcased. It’s hard to ignore the fashion that is on your face throughout the movie.

Trio Friendship: The bond of friendship between three individuals has always resonated well with audiences. Movies like Dil Chahta Hai, Go Goa Gone, 3 Idiots, and ZNMD, these stories connect with the viewers because of the portrayal of strong friendships. The movie Crew also has the potential to touch the hearts of the masses with its depiction of the bittersweet friendship between the three main characters. From sharing dirty jokes to becoming partners in crime, the trio’s relationship is beautifully showcased and executed.

Character Sketches: Moreover, the characters created by Nidhi Mehra and Mehul Suri are highly relatable. In a trio of friends, we all have that one friend who is the responsible caretaker and mommy, like Tabu’s character. There’s also the feisty and lively one, which is Bebo’s character, and the innocent one and acha baccha, which is Kriti’s character. The chemistry between the actresses is outstanding, making the movie a visual treat. Their characters are intricately interwoven, enhancing the beauty and depth of the narrative.

Songs: The highlight of the movie is undoubtedly the lively and catchy songs of the Crew. From the energetic rendition of “Choli” and “Sona Kitna Sona Hai” to the groovy “Naina”, each song is sure to find a spot on your playlist for a long time. The picturisation and choreography by Farah Khan have been executed with finesse, making it a visual treat to watch on the big screen.

What’s not good about Crew

Direction: Rajesh A Krishnan is the director of Crew and the direction seems to be a little chaotic in the first half, and the storytelling could have been crisper and more gripping. This loose execution might be a letdown for some. Additionally, the editing also appears glitchy and absurd in some places, which can negatively impact your movie-watching experience. Nevertheless, the movie picks up in the second half, leaving the audience engaged.

Storyline: The story is about three air hostesses who are broke and decide to take a different flight in search of happiness. However, some people may find the story a bit unrealistic since it shows ordinary air hostesses becoming extraordinary overnight, which can be a little difficult to accept. As the movie proceeds ahead, the story becomes predictable and easygoing. 

Star performance

Tabu portrays the character of Geeta Sethi, who dreams of opening a restaurant after her PF is cleared. Geeta lives a simple life with her husband Arun Sethi, and while her character is portrayed as calm and sensible, Tabu’s performance comes across as a bit too exaggerated at times. Despite being a brilliant actor, the character’s limitations either restricted her actions or made her appear too loud. Nonetheless, Tabu’s performance was enjoyable and exceptional. She looked no less than a diva.

Kareena Kapoor Khan portrays the character of Jasmine, who is a feisty and sassy woman. Despite having no money in her bank account, she leads a lively and daring life. Only Bebo could have done justice to her role, as she adds the perfect amount of edginess to her character. Kareena plays snooty characters with ease, which is evident in this movie. Additionally, Kareena looks stunningly beautiful and it must be said that she is ageing like fine wine. She is just FABULOUS!

Kriti Sanon plays the character of Divya Rana, who aspires to become a pilot but ends up settling for a job as a cabin crew member. Kriti portrays the role of a good-natured and well-behaved student with great conviction, without having to prove herself as a strong character. She appears natural and comfortable in her space while delivering a solid act.

Supporting cast

Diljit Dosanjh plays the character of police officer Jaiveer Singh, who can effortlessly win over your heart. Despite being a great actor, his talents are not fully utilized in this role. The character of Jaiveer Singh doesn’t hold much significance and could have easily been portrayed by any decent actor.

Rajesh Sharma as Mittal is hilarious and promising; however, Saswata Chatterjee is underused. Kapil Sharma as a special appearance adds no value to the story. But as per his performance, he was decent. Trupti Khamkar who plays the police officer is fantastic with her comic timing. She can easily make you laugh just by her mere expressions and that’s a talent.


Concluding the review, Crew is a commercial and entertaining film with less humour and more drama. The film is exhilarating, and the biggest attraction is the ensemble casting of the leading talented actresses, Tabu, Kareena Kapoor Khan, and Kriti Sanon. Crew is an ultra-glamorous movie that is worth watching at least once, as every frame looks spectacular.
