Bhuj : Pride of India Movie Review:
The two movies on war were on the air this week and one of them is Bhuj: Pride of India. The movie is based on the real-life incident of 300 women who came with the courage to extend their help to the Indian Airforce during 1971’s Indo-Pak war. The ladies worked day and night to repair the airstrip that was destroyed during the war. The group of women was led by Squadron leader Vijay Karnik the role of who is played by Ajay Devgn in the movie. The movie has beautifully depicted the bond which Air force army officers share with the common people of the country.
Talking about the role and performance of the actors, Ajay Devgn has done his part well. He has tried his best to be in the role and bring the various expressions of Vijay Karnik into the war context. The director of the movie Abhishek Dudhaiya has taken an initiative to bring some of the untold stories and unsung warriors. He has taken on the story of incredible bravery of both the soldier and civil people in the movie. Such an initiative deserves a big appreciation. Credit to Ajay Devgn also who has brought such a real hero to the screen by giving his hundred per cent.
The other actor such as Sanjay Dutt is playing a raw agent and he kills the Pakistani soldiers. Nora Fatehi is playing an Indian spy working in the home of a high-ranking Pakistani official. Sonakshi Sinha has also played her part well. The sound effects are good but they would have been better on the big screen. Overall it can be said that when audiences have watched so high rated war movies such as Uri: The Surgical Strike (2019) and Border, this movie may not match up to that.
