Patriotism is one emotion which runs through every Indian’s veins, but every few understand the pain of soldier, who risks everything for the country. The latest offering based on Indian soldiers, Fauji Calling is a thoughtful narrative of reality of war-heroes.
Addressing the plight of the families of the Soldiers, the film is an ode to armed forces personnel’s and their issues.
Helmed by Aaryaan Saxena, in terms of story, screenplay, dialogue and direction, the project is bankrolled by Naida Shaikh, Ovez Shaikh, Vikram Kumar, Anil Jain and Vijeta Verma.
Fauji calling is about soldiers who sacrifice their life for the country. It is about the family struggles in his absence, which they have to face along with getting over their situations.
Rajveer Singh (Ranjha Vikram Singh) is a soldier, a happy family man with a loving wife Sakshi (Bidita Bag) a sweet little daughter (Mahi Soni) and mother (Zarina Wahab). Rajveer calls his wife to inform that he would be returning home soon for holidays.
And then surfaces a mysterious character Abhishek (Sharman Joshi), who walks into the life of this happy family as Aaradhya’s ‘father’. So, where is Aaradhya’s father Rajveer and how and why did Abhishek become a part of this family forms the crux of the story.
The films narrative is different than regular high-dose patriotic dramas; it is unconventional, the filmmaker sticks with his narrative and doesn’t dwell into masala treatment, which is rare in this genre.
Actor Sharman Joshi, Zarina Wahab, Ranjha Vikram Singh, Mahi Soni and Bidita Bag, are perfect in their roles and delivers a remarkable performance. Mugdha Godse has a miniscule role too and she performs as expected from the part.
Fauji Calling is a different film, which highlights the issue of soldiers and their families, so people looking for high-dose drama and ridiculous dialogue-baaji, shouldn’t watch it, but if you’re looking for good cinema, this one is definitely a treat!
