Joginder Tuteja: #Exclusive #GunjanSaxenaReview The film works on many counts. It is entertaining, informative and emotional with a good mix of thrills. Just ~100 mins long, it packs in a lot without getting overbearing. Surprisingly, it also has genuine humorous moments too. Must watch! @vineetkumar_s has an important role to play, he does full justice with his grey character. He looks the part and goes through a transformation. @Imangadbedi is in a role opposite to that of #Soorma and is satisfactory. #ManavVij is reliable too - 4 #Exclusive #GunjanSaxenaReview - A true big-screen watch, one has to credit @karanjohar and @DharmaMovies for introducing debutant director #SharanSharma who helms a film that has a true theatrical appeal. Catch this one at @NetflixIndia soon. You would be entertained Rating 4
Baradwaj Rangan: "A terrific touch in this beautifully written drama is how flying becomes Gunjan's "relationship"...The words in Kausar Munir's lyrics (mahiya, etc) are usually used for a beloved. It's just that here, it's a plane, not a person" #GunjanSaxenaTheKargilGirl
