Trailer Touchdown Gunjan Saxena: Netflix upcoming female-oriented war drama looks grand and glossy!
Gunjan Saxena is based on the true story of the first Indian female pilot who went to war, participating in the Kargil battle along with loads of other male soldiers. The film will release on Netflix directly on the 12th of August.
The trailer begins from her cradle where Gunjan Saxena aspires to become a pilot with the support of her father, even though the rest of the family goes against her. The trailer then shows the hardships of a female trying to shine against the other males, despite a lot of discrimination of gender. The trailer quickly establishes the troubles of a woman by showing how she is not able to find herself a changing room or a washroom.
Though the trailer has a good production value with grand visuals, it does seem like Jahnvi Kapoor is a little bit of a misfit and does not have the screen presence that the role demands. Pankaj Tripathi and Vineet Kumar seemingly have strong roles which are expected to have a good impact.
However, it is exciting to see a female-oriented film in the war backdrop coming out for the first time.
