Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl

In Theatres 24-04-2020

“Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl” is certainly one of the most awaited films of the year. The movie is a biopic of Gunjan Saxena who set the historic record of being the first ever woman IAF Pilot who also led the IAF team in the Kargil war. Janhvi Kapoor is playing the titular role in the movie as Gunjan Saxena herself and, if all go well, the film is surely going to be a major milestone in her film career. The other actors in lead roles in the movie are Angad Bedi and Pankaj Tripathi. “Gunjan Saxena” will be officially released on April 24, 2020.

The movie tells the story of brave pilot Gunjan Saxena who had the courage to stand against the insensible norms of patriarchy and make her place in an out-and-out male dominated world. Before Saxena, it was impossible to think of a woman in the seat of an IAF pilot. But, some people are born changemakers and Saxena was surely one of them. The poster of the film inspires promise as we see Kapoor marching ahead in glory in the uniform of IAF pilot- with all her male colleagues applauding her in glee for breaking the barriers. Tripathi has donned the role of Saxena’s father while Bedi is her brother in the film. “Gunjan Saxena” is majorly shot across Lucknow.

“Gunjan Saxena” is directed by new director Sharan Sharma. Given the extremely inspiring theme of the movie, the film is sure to secure a niche for Sharma in the Bollywood film industry. The movie is jointly produced by Zee Studios and Dharma Productions. The music for the film is composed by Tanishq Bagchi and Rachita Arora. The background score is produced by John Stewart Eduri. R. Dee is the cinematographer for the film while Aarif Sheikh is the editor.
