Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl (2020)-Film Review

Biopics are in trend nowadays and after 'Shakuntala Devi', it is the turn of the film 'Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl'  which is the story of India's first Airforce pilot Gunjan Saxena who saved many lives in the 1999 Indo Pak Ward. 

The special thing of the film is that, like the rest of the war-based films, Desh Bhakti's slogan is not chanted nor Gunjan's love affair is shown. So far, Karan Johar, who has made films on marriage, romance, youth and Indians settled abroad, is the producer of this film. This time his company and team have tried very hard to make something different.

The film depicts the story of Gunjan Saxena and her struggle to become a Pilot during the time.  Talking about Hollywood, a lot of films have been made on the Airforce. In Hindi films, a lot of films have been made on Army.

Direction and Screenplay

This is the first film of director Sharan Sharma and he has served the story of the film in an interesting way. Sequences of aerial warfare are shown with much laziness. Moving away from the war sequences of ordinary films, the work of the Air Force is shown in a very but simple way in this film.

The movie is an inspiring one and debutant Sharan Sharma has done exceptionally well and it appears that he has completed the groundwork and only after start making the movie. The writer-director of the film has not let this sensitive person go anywhere

Acting

Jahnavi Kapoor has acted in the film with his own eyes. she has proved herself that she is not here merely because of a star kid. She is full of acting potential and much more to come out soon. 

Actors Vineet Kumar Singh and Manav Vij have also done justice to their characters in Jahnavi's journey to become an Air Force Officer.

Pankaj Tripathi, impresses as usual, even in a comparatively small role of around 20 minutes. 

Gunjan Sexena has managed to show the special relationship of a father and daughter on screen. Actor Pankaj Tripathi made Gunjan's father and an army officer's role memorable with his effortless acting. Like there is a scene where Gunjan has to lose weight to pass the Air Force exam and Pankaj i.e. Gunjan's father makes actress Rekha his inspiration. When Gunjan comes home frustrated, instead of giving a lecture, he takes it to the kitchen and tells the price of the flour of life.

If the story is told in few words, it is the daughter of an army family of Lucknow who wants to become a pilot since childhood. Only his father supports him in this dream. If the pilot is not able to become that, then she applies in the air force. There is a lot of hindrance in the selection, but Gunjan reaches all over for academy training. Here too, after facing the neglect of her seniors and male colleagues, she reaches the battlefield. During the Kargil War, everyone's attitude towards Gunjan changes by bringing the trapped soldiers with understanding and courage.

Overall Gunjan Saxena is a orderly film where the struggle of women and India's air force officer's combat in Kargil war is presented in amusing manner.

Actors Vineet Kumar Singh and Manav Vij have also done justice to their characters in Jahnavi's journey to become an Air Force Officer.
