My wife and I enjoyed this movie based on the experience of Gunjan Saxena, the first female pilot and officer in the Indian Air Force.
The film offers excellent music, a strong storyline, great acting, and a believable performance by Janhavi Kapoor. This young actress gave a strong portrayal of the hopes, dreams, and obstacles faced by Saxena in breaking the limits placed by some men on daughters of India.
At one point in the film, Saxena is challenged to defeat a fellow pilot in an arm wrestling match to prove her ability as a pilot, as if that is the test for military service, bravery, skill, and integrity. In the end, Saxena proved herself by her selfless and heroic actions over 40 missions in the Kargill war of 1999.
Excellent movie that I highly recommend, especially to encourage young girls and women, and silence men who may believe women are lesser beings.
Great movie that reminds us of the universal need to be accepted and loved.
The acting is well done, the dialog believable, and the story heartwarming and full of real-world humor. This is what so much of Hollywood has forgotten and people need not of today. All the material things and social justice in the world is meaningless without love ... and there's a whole lot of kids who need to be loved.
