Bhuj: The Pride Of India Trailer Review: It Gets Your Adrenaline Pumping



Bhuj: The Pride Of India

Bhuj: The Pride Of India is more than 3 minutes long.

Bhuj: The Pride Of India Trailer Review: The  blazing guns are impressive. But the  flow  of rhetorics is  even  more impressive. The dialoguebaazi never seems to end.

Someone  gently  points  out to Ajay Devgan , “Taj Mahal pyar ki nishani hai.”

He  doesn’t take  too kindly to the  love pitch.   “Toh Hindustan  tere baap ki kahani  hai,”  Devgan hits back.

Every member  of  the cast speaks in rhetorics. Even Nora Fatehi playing  an Indian patriot(if she is  lucky she will  get Adnan Sami  to play a fellow-patriot  in  the sequel)  gets to  have her  moment of rhetorical triumph  .

My pick  of  the  lot is, “Main  jeeta hoon marne  ke liye mera naam hai sipahi.” This, one  goes to Mr Devgan who is  full form here,defending his country’s borders  with an airborne   ferocity that reminds us that he once was Bhagat Singh.

The  fire still burns. And to hear Sharad Kelkar recite, “Sarfaroshi  ki tamanna..”  I would wade  though knee-deep slush  for that. But I don’t have to  do that. Bhuj: Pride Of India is  coming to us in our  homes on 11 August, ahead  of Independence Day.

That  reminds me   of  the mandatory close-up shot of the flag. It is there. Don’t worry.

Not since  Sanjay Bhansali’s Devdas have I heard so much dialoguebaazi being thrown around , and  so  aptly. Bhuj Pride Of India  has the  power and energy  of  an Independence Day release. If  we were  to watch   it  in a movie theatre I can see audiences jumping  out   of their seats in excitement.

The  CGs  of aerial  attacks  and  the  slo-mo  shots  of soldiers  falling to the ground  are done  with  more  efficiency than we’ve seen  in other recent war films. The  cast looks impressive  with Sanjay Dutt playing a Rajasthani soldier  swearing not to wear his pugdee until  the enemies are  taught a  lesson.

I also swear  off all  swearing until I see Bhuj: The Pride Of  India. It promises to celebrate  patriotic pride with a rush  of air raids and  rhetorics that  I thought  had  gone dormant since  J P Dutta  took a break.
