Bhuj Movie Review in Hindi: Ajay Devgn starrer Abhishek Dudhaiya’s film ‘Bhuj: The Pride of India’ has released ahead of Independence Day. The film is a period war drama set during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971. The film, currently streaming on Disney+ Hotstar, is a fictionalized recap of the IAF’s journey. Squadron Leader Vijay Karnik (Ajay Devgan), then in charge of the Bhuj airport, along with his team and with the help of 300 women from the local village of Madhapar, rebuilt the IAF base destroyed by repeated bombings by the Pakistani Army. .
Squadron Leader Vijay had helped in vital backup in reaching the army trying to prevent enemy troops from occupying Indian territory.
The incident itself is a brilliant addition to the cinema as to how the valor of civilians helped the Indian Army avoid losing significant ground in an ongoing territorial war between the two neighboring countries since independence. However, as appealing as the story sounds on paper, the film seems to falter to a great extent and does not leave the lasting impression it was expected to make.
With a star cast like Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha, Sharad Leclerc, Ammy Virk, Pranitha Subhash and Nora Fatehi, the film could have worked wonders.
The way the story progresses is completely different from the reality and the unnecessary introduction of songs and dance scenes spoils the mood of the film. While period films and war dramas are taking on a more realistic look these days, Bhuj: The Pride of India is a bit far from it.
Apart from the main cast, the team of big actors seems to be working without preparation. Effectively a war story does not come to life. The storytelling style is highly dramatic, with women marching to devotional songs while repairing a torn runway in the middle of battle, or a soldier killing several enemies.
The VFX and animation work in the film is passable and Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt and to an extent Sharad Kelkar also get ample moments to show their valor. If you are looking for a new Independence Day entertainment, then you can watch this movie to enjoy the weekend.
