Indian Express critic Shubhra Gupta had written in her review: “It is the sort of awakening that shakes loose Katyal from his cocooned wealthy life, which he shares with his wife Amrita (Nimrat Kaur) and young daughter, forcing him to deal with a series of dangerous situations, and leading to the evacuation of more than a lakh Indians stuck between Saddam Hussain’s brutal forces and an alarmingly slow-to-take-heed Indian state.”

                                      Airlift is a must watch for all Indians. This film has a great deal of patriotism in it and if you watch it, it will bring tears in your eyes. If you are proud to be an Indian, you should watch Airlift, that's all i have to say.
