In 2015, the government had taken a historic decision that women would be inducted into the Indian Air Force as fighter pilots. This was the first woman among fighter pilots in the country’s armed forces. This decision gave birth to the story of Kangana Ranaut’s film Tejas released today. The film’s director Sarvesh Mewada told Prabhat Khabar. Although the story of the film was an impressive decision, the film has deteriorated.
The story, screenplay, acting, and technology of the film have all failed to do justice to its subject. Looking at the film, it seems that the sole objective of the film is to highlight the beauty of Kangana Ranaut, but the makers also have to understand that the character needs a strong story and screenplay on the silver screen. Which this film has forgotten. This film neither arouses the feeling of patriotism nor salutes the bravery of women fighter pilots.
Same old story of Pakistani mission
The story of the film is about Kangana (Tejas), who is attending the naming ceremony of a Tejas fighter plane and her dream is to grow up and become a pilot in the Air Force. He is the face of the film and the dream also comes true. She not only becomes a pilot, but also undertakes a mission to go to Pakistan and rescue an Indian secret agent captured by Pakistani terrorists, and how she completes this mission. This is the story of the film. That is the past too. The film flashes back and forth between the past and the future.
Advantages and disadvantages of the film
Speaking of which, the best thing about the film is that it focuses on removing gender bias, be it on the war front or not. One of the weak points of the film is that it has linked real events like Indian women becoming fighter pilots and the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, the Ram Temple, but the story is completely fictional.
More cinematic liberties have been taken than necessary in the film’s story. Is it that easy to go out of the country? Can just two people together complete the entire mission? You feel this all the time while watching a film. At the beginning of the mission, it was said that Indian aircraft would complete this mission by taking off from Pakistani soil, but it is not known how this will happen. Only one day is left to complete the mission.
Then the character of Anshul, who is not involved in this mission, gives an idea on the phone as to how this can happen. This can explain the weakness of the screenplay of the film. This thing keeps repeating again and again in the climax of the film that I want to see the destruction of terrorist leader India. After some time he starts getting worried. The makers have very little communication. This scene shows it. Furthermore, the discussion was very superficial.
Like the story of the film, its VFX is also very weak. The trick of the Hollywood film Mission Impossible has also been used in the film. The song music of the film is normal, but singing is not necessary in such films. The makers had to understand this.
Kangana’s acting remains weak
Kangana is a capable artist, but she has not been able to leave as much impact in acting as was expected. The kind of questions she asks out of curiosity during her training in the film seem childish. Kangana has looked weak many times. She has not been able to make that much impact on the character of Tejas. Anshul Chauhan’s acting in the film definitely impresses. The rest of the characters, Ashish Vidyarthi and Varun Mitra, were nothing special. The rest of the characters also only supported Kangana’s character.
