Movie - Airlift

Released for Republic Day, the movie Airlift stars Akshay Kumar as a fictional Indian businessman living in Kuwait who is among 170,000 Indian ex-pats who become stranded as refugees during the real life events of Iraq's 1990 invasion of Kuwait. It was during this crisis that India mounted the world's largest ever aerial evacuation of refugees.

I guess that's one of the reasons why you need to have a country and can't just live the bohemian lifestyle as a citizen of the world at large, because in spite of what the liberals say, you can't just survive on the kindness of strangers.

Good movie. Maybe not the most exciting of topics but very realistic and balanced depiction of the situation.
