Kangana Ranaut’s recent release ‘Tejas’ has brought immense applause and appreciation for her as she gave one of her brilliant performances in the movie. The film will portray the real-life story of Tejas Gill, who has grown up in a loving family where a supportive father encouraged his daughter to fly and leave her mark in the world of the sky.
Tejas is the story of an IAF pilot who puts her life at stake every time she is on a dangerous mission; for her, the more dangerous, the better. As during her school days, she often heard sayings, “If it is easy, don’t send her”.
While keeping Kangana as the centre of attraction in the film, all the other main portrayals goes unnoticed. In a scene, we can see Tejas in a conversation with her co-pilot, Anshul Chauhan, where they are talking about boyfriends and two-timing. Another man in the life of Tejas, Varun Mitra, can also be seen sharing a bit of screen time, but it is always Tejas who is stealing all the focus rather than others.
A significant portion of the film has a ‘Uri’-like snatch-and-grab operation (with a direct reference to ‘ghar mein ghus ke maarna’ dialogue, and New India, etc.) with none other than Pakistan, which is, of course, the country to dwell on for such scenes. We can see a daring rescue operation has also been set up in the film where two of the female pilots are a part of this mission only to make the enemies look like fools, which in turn leads the film into a series of eye-roll moments.
The plot of the movie mainly revolves around the attack on the Ram Janambhoomi, which is, of course, the worst act ever, with the chief terrorist threatening to destroy India. It’s more obvious than anything else that a couple of things in the film work at making the point about how women are as good as men, and of course, it’s the leading lady, Kangana, whose acting abilities shine through the film even in the weakest scenes.
