Les Chevaliers du ciel (English - Sky Fighters) (8/10)

I happen to see this movie by chance...it was Independence day and we wanted to go out and watch some movie...with other options being typical masala movies like "Singhh is King" and "God Tussi Great Ho" , we decided to settle for this French movie. So there we were in Select City Walk with the tickets of this unknown movie.

A quick search on Google told me that it is a "French Thriller" movie...and I had no idea that I was in for such a great surprise...

The movie revolves around two pilots - Captains Marchellia and Fahrenheit - Marchellia had to shoot down a demo Mirage which has been brought to Farnborough Airshow - and this ultimately results into their expulsion from Services. Subsequently they get a chance to work on a secret mission and fight off the terrorists and save Paris.
While watching the movie - I was often reminded of Tom Cruise starrer Top Gun but this one differs from Top Gun as most of the shots in the movie has been shot in air while Top Gun had most of the stories happening in land.
Movie has some real breathtaking visuals of aerial landscape in and around France especially the one scene which has Alps...here it is..



The soundtrack of the movie is divine!...My favorite being  You're the conversation - I'm the game and Girl talk...

Being an avid cloud watcher myself , this movie came out to be a visual treat....

For all the dreamers out there - its a must watch movie for you.

Even one of the the most talked about couple of India - Priyanka Gandhi with her husband Robert Vadra  was there watching the movie...rumor mills tell me that the movie was specially screened for the couple since Gandhi family has always been so passionate with airplanes ...if its true are true then I am thankful to them!
