Story of the movie:Based on the Nathu La military clashes of 1967 which took place along the Sikkim border, Paltan showcases an untold story of the Indian forces facing off in an intense battle to ward off a Chinese infiltration. Paltan, a war drama, focuses on the hard-hitting truth of India’s relations with China, and how it is important to acknowledge that China, an enormous power in world politics, poses to be a huge threat to India.
Star Performance: Jackie Shroff who plays the role of Maj Gen Sagat Singh has delivered a good performance. While, Arjun Rampal and Sonu Sood have also done justice to their roles.
Music Direction: The film’s music fails to impress.
Direction: There’s way too much melodrama, which takes away all the joy you may feel looking at the scenic beauty of Sikkim. The camaraderie between the soldiers fails to hit the right notes, and the back stories of the soldiers are extremely cliche’d. Perhaps with a better script and better dialogues, the actors would have been able to say things with conviction.
Watch Or Not: You can watch it once!
