About Bhuj: The Pride of India Movie
Bhuj movie is based on the forgotten story of valiant 300 women who showed immense courage in reviving the destroyed airbase. The Bhuj movie is based on a real military conflict between India and Pakistan that took place during the Indo-Pak war of 1971. The story begins when the Pakistani Air Force bombarded strategically an important military airbase of the Indian Air Force at the Bhuj area which sits near the India-Pakistan border.
The airbase in Bhuj was the nearest to gain access over Pakistan and the only one of its type in several hundreds of kilometers at that time. After bombing of Indian airbase, some 300 odd women from the area of Bhuj came together along with military personnel to help and reconstruct the destroyed airbase of Bhuj.
The movie also shows the true courage of women and the lives they risked, despite being fully aware of the fact that Pakistan Air Force could come back and attack the airbase. The work was done with such an intensity and dedication that it was completed within 3 days.
