Tejas Movie Review | Tejas is a new Indian Hindi-language action drama film directed by Sarvesh Mewara and produced by RSVP Movies. The film stars Kangana Ranaut as Tejas Gill, a skilled Indian Air Force (IAF) pilot. Tejas Gill has grown up in a loving family, where a supportive father has encouraged his daughter to fly. Now, she is in her Top Gun avatar, striding down the runway, strapping on her helmet, and looping the loops.
The film tells the story of Tejas and her team of brave pilots who put their lives at stake every time they are on a dangerous mission. The more dangerous the mission, the better they like it.
Tejas is a mixed bag of action, drama, and patriotism. The film has some thrilling action sequences, but the plot is predictable and the characters are underdeveloped.
Kangana Ranaut gives a powerful performance as Tejas Gill. She is convincing as a skilled and fearless pilot. However, the film is so focused on Tejas that the other characters end up as satellites.
The film’s relationship between Tejas and her co-pilot (Anshul Chauhan) is one of the few bright spots. The two have some good chemistry, and their conversations are often funny and insightful.
However, the film’s focus on Tejas comes at the expense of the other characters. The men in Tejas’s life are reduced to looking at her adoringly.
The film also has a significant portion that is similar to the 2019 film Uri: The Surgical Strike. In this portion, Tejas and her team spearhead a daring rescue operation from deep within an outpost in Pakistan.
The film’s plot builds in an attack on the Ram Janmabhoomi, which is, of course, the worst act ever in the movie’s book. The chief terrorist stomps about yelling hysterically about India’s destruction.
Overall, Tejas is a mixed bag of a film. It has some thrilling action sequences, but the plot is predictable and the characters are underdeveloped. Kangana Ranaut gives a powerful performance, but the film is so focused on her that the other characters end up as satellites.
As the film hit the screens, audience has given the film mixed reviews. Some have praised Kangana for her brilliant performance and called it a film of emotion and action while some called it an epic letdown. Some even criticised the VFX and screenplay of the film
One user wrote, “Honestly apart from being a fan of Kangana Tejas is brilliant movie to watch for the real action of our Fighter plane. Kangana is awesome as Tejas Gill and last scene of Shri Ram Mandir Inauguration and the chanting of Jai Shri Ram.”
Another user said “Tejas is a Poorly Budget, Badly Scripted, Lower Standard VFX in comparison of 90’s Video Games and One of the KanganaRanaut’s most Bizzare Acting portrayal.Biggest Setback Rating – ⭐💫I liked the Tejas Trailer so much that literally called it India’s #TopGunMaverick, but that the ILLUSION, Tejas team created to distract and confuse audience.
Literally that’s 2.33 Min Trailer video is the Bestest and Only Good Shots of Tejas Movie. The VFX, the Action choreography is childish. Even the YouTubers makes it more appealing videos than that. Writer-Director Sarvesh Mewara’s Story should be an example and showcased ‘How Should We Not Write A Film’. Direction is Faulty, he literally lost control over the screenplay.
Kangana Ranaut improvisations in Dialogues is the Biggest Setback for #Tejas. It sound likes ‘GYAAN’, what she herself described in the CLIMAX. I’m deeply disappointed with #KanganaRanaut’s acting. She literally lost it. The coustrme and look designers are faulty too. Her non-uniform casual looks goes WRONG entirely. The Opening Rescue mission to the Finale Suicidal Mission… All are just Boaring DialogueBaazi instead of action. The #RamMandirAyodhya terrorist sequence surprise is another Missing Point.”
