The film’s principal photography began in February 2019, and Lucknow served as the location for the majority of the shooting. Despite continuing for three months, the movie’s filming was stopped in May 2019 due to severe weather, however it was later resumed that same month. On May 24, 2019, the first schedule for the movie was finished.
Although the team had originally intended to film a few sequences in London in July, Georgia was the new choice. The crew intended to film a few scenes at Kazbegi, a town in Georgia’s northeast, which is home to high-altitude terrain. The village is located in a mountainous region at a height of more than 5700 feet. Coach Brinston Miranda was there while Janhvi Kapoor and Angad Bedi shot the workout sequences to stay in shape for their roles. The movie’s filming was completed on December 29, 2019.
The story opens with young Gunjan Saxena and her older brother, Anshuman, on a flight in Lucknow, 1984. Anshuman forbids Gunjan from peering out of the plane’s window. A helpful flight attendant attends to the issue and leads Gunjan to the cockpit. Her desire to become a pilot is quickly sparked when she looks at the cockpit because she is impressed by the features of the aircraft.
A few years later, Anup and Kirti, Gunjan’s proud parents, congratulate her on her academic success and announce their intention to enroll her in high school. Gunjan, however, wants to leave high school and pursue a career as a pilot. Anup vehemently disagrees with Anshuman’s opinion that women belong in the kitchen preparing meals for the family rather than the cockpit. He supports gender equality and gives Gunjan the freedom to pursue her dream of becoming a pilot. Gunjan makes several attempts, but they are unsuccessful due to obstacles like doubts about her educational background and prohibitive expenditures, making her dejectedly return home each time. An advertisement in a newspaper for acceptance into the Indian Air Force gives Gunjan the perfect opportunity to make an effort to join the air force despite the fact that her parents have different perspectives on her dream, with Kirti hoping her daughter would soon become cautious and Anup insistent on allowing his daughter to pursue her dreams relentlessly. Anshuman, who is currently enlisting in the army, expresses his utter disapproval and informs Gunjan that women are not welcome in the Air Force. However, she disregards him and continues with the formalities, eventually learning that she is the only female who was accepted on the day of the results.
This movie is very patriotic and emotional. There are several scenes in the film that will give you goosebumps. It is also a film with a beautiful storyline and treatment. There are many reasons for its box office success, but the film’s patriotic message is bound to be appreciated by audiences everywhere. While you may not be as emotionally attached to Gunjan Saxena as the real Gunjan, it is sure to leave an impact on the audience.
The film is also a great example of the value of a good word of mouth campaign. While many people may have enjoyed Gunjan Saxena, it would have been more difficult to reach the same audience if it was released on a normal weekend. It is unlikely that the movie would have made the same amount of money had it been released on a weekend. Instead, it would have had a better chance to do better on the box office, which has a huge impact on the overall film.
The Kargil Girl is an upcoming biographical film starring Janhvi Kapoor as an Indian Air Force pilot. It was initially scheduled to release on 13 March 2020. However, the release date was later pushed back to the summer. Netflix has now acquired the distribution rights for the movie and plans to release it on its streaming platform. With a budget of about Rs. 40 crore, Gunjan Saxena could have had a good run at the box office.
Anshuman is still in denial of Gunjan’s dedication and determination. When the film begins, Gunjan faces the harsh realities of the Air Force and considers leaving the camp. When the Kargil war begins, however, he reconsiders his decision. The Air Force needs all of their pilots for the war, and he is one of them. Then, Anshuman comes to meet Gunjan and dissuades him from taking part in the Kargil war.
