Talking about the film, our in-house film critic, Sreeju Sudhakaran wrote in his review, “Gunjan Saxena – The Kargil Girl is a film that steers away from typical stereotypes related to a war biopic, by being a warm and engaging coming-of-age drama. It is simplistic, heartwarming and inspiring, while doing its bit to break the shackles of misogyny and sexism. Also, Pankaj Tripathi and Janhvi Kapoor make a cool combo.”
