The movie Paltan, is based on a true incident that took place in 1967. It depicts the situations of Nathula Pass clashes which were a result of Indo-China war.
It represents the bravery of the Indian Army’s Rajput Batallion who gave a head to head defense to the Chinese attackers.
Initially, the movie begins with depicting the tension created by the war. A postman lnocks doors of different families giving them the bad news of their loved one’s demise.
The movie is captured in the real locations which gives it a sense of reality for sure. The major roles of the movie are well portraited but, some of the other roles are not so heart touching.
The movie includes scenes of soldiers looking at theor family photographs and crying in the memory of their loved families. Such scenes surely appeal to the audience’s hearts.
But there is a repetition of sounds and basic war scenes in the movie which makes it slightly boring at times.
Also, there are certain half- told and blurry depiction of some instances which may get your interest away from the movie.
On a concluding note, if you are a lover of patriotic movies or war movies then, Paltan is your choice. However, if you don’t really enjoy war story lines or action then you should not plan to watch this movie.
