You should watch it or not?
The concept behind the movie was remarkable as the genre touches the emotion of the audiences being it so sensitive. On the other hand, Saxsena has made his best choices in picking up the casting according to the requirement in the drama. The role “Aradhya” played by the young new comer Mahi Soni was admiring and incredible. The way she tried portraying all her emotion for her Dad was commendable.
If the war scenes and the unrealistic dialogues were cut short then “Mera Fauji Calling” could have been a better gift to the audience. The concept became repetitive and usual to the Bollywood movies people got to see earlier. Although the first half of the movie was simple, eye soothing and interesting but later half was not at all convincing as it seemed to be replicate to some other Army based movies.
The overall representation of the lifestyle of a Fauji and how the family of him passes their days was beautiful and realistic; for which the story will attract the audiences. Watching the movie could bring a meaningful message to them. So if you are wondering to go for an advisable-meaning story of family drama then “Mera Fauji Calling” can be a good option.
