The glimpses of the movie from the trailer suggests an inspiring tale on the cards, for sure. The casting and the writing stands out from what we are shown. It looks like everyone has come out with their best.
The story of Gunjan Saxena is the winning deal here. It not only offers a fresh premise but also ticks all the boxes of current times. The male versus female angle, patriotism, father-daughter bonding and so on give the impression of a complete package.
Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl is a test for Janhvi Kapoor, more than anyone else. Her first movie was a remake of a blockbuster film where she fell short of the charming original act. Here Janhvi gets a chance to do an ‘original act’ that would be devoid of comparison. It also helps that she has to shoulder the entire narrative and stands to gain the most with its success.
Check out the trailer below. Karan Johar produces Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl. Sharan Sharma directs the movie. Pankaj Tripathi, Angad Bedi, Manav Vij, and Vineet Kumar Singh are some of the key artists in the inspiring drama.
Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl will stream from August 12th on Netflix. The timing just before the Independence Day looks perfect for the outing.
