Janhvi Kapoor's first biopic. It is indeed a daunting task for her to play a strong character like Gunjan Saxena as she is just one film old See more »


In the patrol scene, the troops are shown in a very relaxed attitude, with their rifles hanging from their shoulders as if they were on parade, which is completely unacceptable for a combat situation. The Indian Army is a highly professional force which has undergone a lot of fighting. See more »


Gunjan Saxena: The Air Force needs cadets who are patriots. I just want to fly planes. I'm not being a traitor to the country for my dream, am I ?
Colonel Anup Saxena: What is the opposite of treachery ?
Gunjan Saxena: Sincerity ?
Colonel Anup Saxena: If you do your work with sincerity, you cannot be a traitor to the country. You think the Air Force wants people who chant, "All Hail Mother India" ?

User Reviews

This film is rather an insult to Gunjan ma'am for boosting the career of C grade nepokid. But over emotional brainless fools will fall in the trap again.
12 August 2020 | by kta-87908See all my reviews

This film has not been made to tell the story of Gunjan Saxena. It's the commom formula since the last few years. When they run out of copying Hollywood,Korean,Spanish,Tamil etc. films, they pick a "Nationalism" topic to make people fool in the name of patriotism & use its PR agencies to manipulate brainless audience more. And then loads of CASH!

So, if you are really interested to pay tribute to Gunjan Saxena ma'am, then watch documentary or read article about her to give her proper respect. Don't give your money to these scums who have no respect for her. If they actually had respect for Gunjan ma'am, then they would cast an actor, not a straight face nepokid.

& 2 stars for the 2 words of the tittle Gunjan Saxena.
