A high-flying pilot, in charge of a flight from Dubai to Kochi, has to bring all his vaunted expertise to bear in order to power through bad weather and worsening visibility. Is he successful?

Runway 34 movie review: the real-life incident that the film is based on (a 2015 flight from Doha to Kochi had a successful trajectory).

On the whole, RUNWAY 34 boasts of fine performances, technical brilliance and a gripping first half.

the slow moving and talk-heavy second half dilutes the impact to a great extent. At the box office, the film will appeal to multiplex frequenting audience.
