Bhuj Trailer Review: Ajay Devgn-Sanjay Dutt-Sonakshi Starrer Gets Your Adrenaline Pumping
The trailer of Bhuj: Pride Of India is more than 3 minutes long. The blazing guns are impressive. But the flow of rhetorics is even more impressive. The dialogue-baazi never seems to end. Someone  gently  points  out to Ajay Devgn, “Taj Mahal pyar ki nishani hai.” He doesn’t take too kindly to the love pitch. “Toh Hindustan tere baap ki Kahani hai, ” Devgn 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 Devgn 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 through 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 dialogue-baazi 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.
