Ratings:.3/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:News18

In the end, Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl is a simple, straightforward film powered by impressive performances from Janhvi Kapoor and Pankaj Tripathi. Its real victory is in telling a hugely inspiring story of chasing one’s dream and overcoming all odds, without fuss or flash. There were moments in the film I had a lump the size of a golf ball in my throat. I recommend that you make the time for it.

On the whole, Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl is a box-office winner, a hit! It would have shone at the box-office, had it been premiered in the cinemas. On the Netflix streaming platform too, it will win plaudits for its script, direction and performances. Patriotism and family emotions will be its scoring points.

Once again, we are in the treacherous terrain between fact and fiction. But debutant director Sharan Sharma and his co-writer Nikhil Mehrotra take advantage of this hybrid material to create a saga that isn’t startlingly innovative but high on impact. This is one of those films in which you are keenly aware that your buttons are being pushed but it’s done so artfully that you relish the experience. Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl might remind you of Uyare, the wonderful Malayalam film, also about a girl who loved flying, or the Hollywood film, Hidden Figures, about women who forge a path at the male-dominated NASA, but this is a full-blown, homegrown Hindi drama. I will admit that I wept copiously.

The best part though, and for which the film truly deserves a medal, is its choosing to steer clear of chest-thumping, flag-waving, ugly jingoism. In a throwaway line, the girl who wanted to be pilot says: I only want to fly. Could the film have been better? Undoubtedly. Women following their dreams against patriarchal odds? Absolutely.

Gunjan Saxena – The Kargil Girl spares us the spectacle of ungainly chest-thumping. What it gives us instead, and without too much showy flapping of the wings, is a good old touching tale of a girl who dared to break free from her cage and fly away – a heroine we can cheer without resorting to a blood-curdling war cry.

Ratings:.4/5 Review By: Renuka Site:Times Of India

More than anything else, Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl is a deeply moving tale of a feminist father and his feisty daughter. It wages war against patriarchal mind-set and discrimination, and identifies it as a bigger threat to progress than the one we perhaps tackled in 1999.

Sharan Sharma’s directorial debut is refreshing as the war sequences are not caricaturish and show the ground reality of what could have happened back in the day. He narrated the story of Gunjan, written by Nikhil Mehrotra, to a crisp in the right runtime. The film showed feminism as the topic of discussion rather than nationalism which is basically the narrative of films with a war backdrop. Sharan showed the moments with great honesty and harsh reality which Gunjan must have actually witnessed while making a mark as IAF pilot.

Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl is so believable that as a woman from a vastly different profession, one that is packed with other women, I still felt like I was watching my own story. Gunjan Saxena is about one remarkable woman, but it is also about every remarkable woman that ever lived. It is poignant and fun, it is shorn of intellectual pretensions but is clever as heck, and I loved it.
