Bhuj: The Pride of India Movie Review:
On December 8, the PAF (Pakistan Air Force drops 12 bombs at the IAF (Indian Air Force) airstrip of Bhuj, Gujarat. The IAF expects the Border Security Force (BSF) to repair & rebuild the destroyed portions of the airstrip but they are both running out of time & labor. During this, mostly women from 300 villages come forward to accomplish the task. Abhishek Dudhaiya, director in Bhuj-The Pride of India, recounts the story of unsung warriors and their incredible bravery, which is worth telling.
As written in the disclaimer of the film, the film is loosely based on true events & many parts are fictional. There are cameos of many characters in the first half in which bravery is showcased. PAF airstrike on Bhuj airbase in shown.
The film becomes more interesting in the second part. The film will keep you hooked the entire time. The action, although over the top. There are many aerial dog fights that are copied from many Hollywood films like Behind Enemy Lines (2001) & Top Gun.
The sound and visuals of the film are what you deserve on the big screen. The work of VFX is good and listening to the sound that is there, you will feel that you are really on the battlefield.
Ajay Devgn is so perfect in his character that it seems as if no one else could have done played this role except for him. Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha, Sharad Kelkar and Ammy Virk have also done a good job. Navni Parihar looks perfect in the role of former Prime Minister- Indira Gandhi.
This is an action-packed movie that, for the most part, ignores military technicalities & goes into the typical Bollywood masala zone. However, for average audiences, this would serve as a perfect independence day gift especially sitting at home.
Final Rating- 3/5
