Gunjan Saxena helmed by Sharan Sharma is an inspiring biopic on India's first female combat pilot who flew helicopter missions during the 1999 Kargil war. What sets this film different from other films of this genre is the treatment given by director and the writers. While most of the films based on this genre often indulge in jingoism, chest thumping with loud jarring music, this film relies on moments and that too in most subtle way. A good movie can be characterized by its fine moments or scenes that remain etched in your memory for a long time and this movie offers plenty of them. To describe a few ; the steely resolve to become a pilot comes to Gunjan's mind when she is fighting over window seat with her brother in a plane and an air-hostess takes her to the cockpit. As a kid, she gets besotted by cockpit of a commercial aircraft and aviator wearing pilots. She starts wearing aviators even during late evenings and her explanation for the same is that eyesight of pilot should be perfect and she is saving her eyes from harmful rays. Still a kid, when Gunjan says to her father that she wants to become a pilot, her brother jokingly says that he wants to be Kapil Dev. He further taunts her that at best she can become an air-hostess. It is pertinent to mention that the journey for Gunjan Saxena to become a pilot was not easy, rather it was full of obstacles. Right from the time of applying for the post of Indian Air Force pilot, to the training time she faces hurdles at every stage. But, her unflinching resolve to become a pilot keeps her floating even in the muddled waters. Yes, there comes a moment when she gets confused and talks with her father which i would rate as the best scene of the movie. Confused, Gunjan asks her father that Air Force needs cadets who are patriots but i just want to fly planes. The father asks,"Do you think Air Force needs people who only shout 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai' ? They want cadets who are sincere towards their goal, have a passion for flying and will complete their training with sincerity. Once, you become a good pilot with hard work, you automatically become a patriot. This scene becomes very relevant in today's time as it juxtaposes with some of the views that have been forced by several people in context of being patriot. And, on top of it this dialogue is mouthed by a person who is himself serving in the army.
