Bollywood has evolved in many ways. Now not only the love stories are appreciated but also the realistic movies too. People love to watch inspirational and motivating movies as they relate themselves with the struggles in their daily lives. People strongly believe in the movies as their stories are real. If such huge crowd is about to watch a movie on true story it’s huge responsibility on the filmmakers too, to make sure that it showcases what’s for real and what’s not. But those are not in present where we used to buy tickets and go out in multipex and have popcorns with extra cheese and a diet cola in front of that huge screen. During this pandemic though the mall and theatres are shutdown through internet media the movies are reaching till the audience. One of the releases is Gunjan Saxena-The Kargil Girl starring Janhvi Kapoor. This story of the Dharma Productions movie is based on the first Indian Air Force woman pilot who was part of the 1999 Kargil war.Ms Saxena, who is one of the first female pilots to fly in combat, played an important role in rescuing injured soldiers during the Kargil War and was awarded the gallantry Shaurya Vir Award for displaying courage during the war.The movie was streaming on Netflix on Wednesday 12-08-2020.
The movie has many objectionable scenes as per the Indian Air force and before the release of the film, the Indian Air Force had requested Dharma Productions (Karan Johar) to modify or delete the objectionable scenes. Unfortunately,it did not take any action, and the scenes were not deleted.
And hence in action to that IAF has written a letter to the Censor Board objecting to its “undue negative” portrayal in the movie -Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl. The letter further, read, “In the aim to glorify the screen character of ”Ex-Flt Lt Gunjan Saxena”, Dharma Productions presented some situations that are misleading and portray an inappropriate work culture especially against women in the IAF.” Well, when it comes to culture of our nation and its authorities we spare nothing.
A movie like this should represent Indian Air Force with authenticity and make all efforts to ensure that the film helps to inspire the next generation of IAF officers but the scenes and dialogues of the script, which are considered objectionable are presentation of incorrect gender bias as per the letter by IAF.
The Air Force stated that it feels that a mere media plan and disclaimer would not be adequate to prevent the presentation of incorrect facts about the IAF.
In reaction to the above issue grant of NOC for the release of the movie will be considered after deleting or modifying the scenes. No doubt to the fact that Gunjan Saxena is a brave lady, and all her struggles and bravery is appreciated, but which are true. The claps and tears should go for whats true and not to glorify and create a attractive piece of script and fool people.The incorrect information or scenes towards IAF is intolerant and this act can mislead many to-be officers of IAF.
