Let's hope the film reaches to masses and the story of one of our national hero is known to all.Bhuj: The Pride of India is inspired by the 1971 Indo-Pakistan war where the airstrip at Bhuj was destroyed in combat and the brave officer, Vikram Karnik essayed by Ajay Devgn built the Bhuj airport along with 300 women from a nearby village; a move that helped India win the war. Sonakshi Sinha essays the role of Sunderben Jetha - a social worker who risked everything to help armed forces in this critical time. Sanjay Dutt brings to life the role of Ranchordas Pagi whose efforts are said to have saved thousands of lives.Those close to Ajay Devgan said, “For example, the bridge breaking scene has been shot in the film. It was earlier shot in Bhuj, but it didn’t look impressive on the edit table. The VFX team also said that there was a lot of thrill in it. Even for doing VFX, the real impact needs more support.

So that scene was reshot in Ramoji Filmcity. The Indian army doesn’t blow up that bridge with bomb blasts, but uses the cyclone raised in the water. To show that force of pressure, the scene of collecting 60 thousand litres of water at Ramoji Filmcity and blowing the bridge with its wave was filmed.


The makers of the film also got help from the Indian Army


The makers of the film also got help from the Indian Army. The original tank and the rest of the weapons were given to the makers. The exterior of the fighter plane was given to use. Art Direction’s team again designed the fighter planes themselves. One to two crore rupees were spent in it.


300 junior artists were taken on board for the attack of 1800 Pakistani army. 1800 is being shown with the help of VFX. There are many such scenes throughout the film. Due to all these reasons, the makers have spent Rs 50 lakh on the shoot every day. A total of more than 100 days were shot.first 30 seconds - OK, run off the mill jingoistic summer blockbuster action movie. not too bad. maybe will watch it on OTT when bored
