Bhuj- the pride of India is directed by Abhishek Dudhaiya. The film was released to capitalize on the patriotic spirit around the August 15th holiday. Unfortunately, due to its weird storyline and abruptly written dialogue, it will ruin your weekend. This film is a textbook example of how not to make a film.
The character of IAF Squadron Leader Vijay Karnik, played by Ajay Devgan, has a very inadequate character structure to act. This film’s character structures are all poorly constructed. The use of chest-thumping dialogue delivery is all over the place. This film was supposed to depict the narrative of 300 women and their bravery, but instead, it focused on Sanjay Dutt’s superhuman capacity to kill hundreds of Pakistani soldiers on his alone. Yes, you read that correctly.
The movie’s overdramatic background score did more harm than good. In the opening hour of the film, there are some fantastic action sequences with stylized camera angles and perspectives. The visual effects are average, good in some scenes, and terrible in others.
There are some redeeming qualities to the film, but the sloppy storyline didn’t allow Bhuj to shine.
