Bhuj the Pride of India is an action historical drama which is directed by Abhishek Dudhaiya. A story is based on 300 Bhuj villager mostly women risked their lives during 1971 in India Pakistan war and aided the Indian air force to rebuilt the heavily bombed and damaged Bhuj Airstrip within 72 hours. The intense labour and sufficient execution helped him making the India combat aircraft take off and face the opposing forces. The Area been under constant threat and the labours was signalled with siren when coast will clear when the Pakistani forces where incoming. Any arrangement of food and water, despite all of that resilient and brave. The movie which is sold to Disney plus hotstar has all the elements to work and rile up the audience into the theatre.
Abhishek Dudhaiya featured the great cast including Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt, Sharad Kelkar, Ammy Virk, Sonakshi Sinha and Nora Fatehi. The scale of this movie is produced; expensive shots which featured 100 of extras you can see in trailer that scale and magnitude is bigger. I can,t say for the same for special effects and CGI work which definitely required more care and attention in details. But the time and investment on such a project required has to come to praise worthy. All the actors which is featured in the trailer I am only blown away with sharad kelkar conviction, this man showcases the body language and demeanour that is required for a role.
What is not worked for the trailer of Bhuj the pride of India? First of all the trailer is becoming the short film of this point. How the creator not understands that trailer is 3min long while showcasing probably every single character and motivation what is eventually happened. The magic of cinema is surprised every tune for this film is absolutely lost when you basically exposed every single element of film that will follow. The Trailer is so poorly edited that doesn’t leave anything that imagination of the viewer it follows the tropes of basic 20 sec snippet for every character so they don’t feel left out. This remind of terrible trailer that ruined movie experiences like Mohenjo Daro and Marjaavaan that overkill with trailers.
The dialogue in the trailer may have come across unnatural for some reason also been presented as rhyme. The worst of the trailer is the fact that Nora Fatehi is probably handed a most intense acting role and creator still resort of making dance and Item Song. What is need of item song when movie is based on historical event that is dedicated to the bravery of men and women of Bhuj and Army forces? Also I have realized that I can’t keep up defending Sonakshi Sinha by referencing her performance in lootera. All the scenes of Sonakshi Sinha on the trailer are extremely underwhelming whether it be killing an animal or trying to say motivational. It would be sad see that efforts of other actor not been acknowledged just because of some jarring elements.
Bhuj the Pride of India movie is set to premiere on 13 August 2021 in Disney Plus Hotstar streaming platform. The upcoming hindi language historical war drama is directed by Abhishek Dudhaiya who is try to showcase the real power of being in Indian as Bhuj villager who help the Indian Airforce by rebuilding the Bhuj airport airstrip against the Pakistani forces in the 1971 Indo-Pak war.
