Paltan is based on true happenings at the actual line of control between India and China at Nathu La pass – a strategically important corridor between India and Tibet. This is a story of bravehearts from Indian Army’s Rajput battalion, who fought against their unreasonable Chinese counterpart in 1965.

Paltan is based on a theme that says – India is an idea, worth dying for – it’s a lot more than just a line from the film it is a patriotic notion that keeps the soldiers of JP Dutta’s Paltan marching on. The movie’s narrative begins soon after the Indo-Sino war of 1962. The war is referred to as turmoil between both sides, but what happens next are a lot more tangles. Here, to save Sikkim from the Chinese army who is treacherous and slowly inching toward the Indian side.

Paltan is written and directed by JP Dutta, the film stars a team of young and experienced actors to portray real characters from this important yet much lesser known slice of history. We get to see Arjun Rampal as Lt Col. Rai Singh and Sonu Sood as Major Bishen Singh respectively is the leader and play top ranking officers and give great performances. We get to see younger actors, Harshvardhan Rane who stands out as a passionate soldier while Gurmeet Singh Choudhary gives his best, he plays the right accent that oscillates between Jatt Haryanvi and Rajasthani. Luv Sinha plays the role of Attar Singh and gives his best while Siddhant Kapoor is good in his act.

Those who lose the acting battleground are those playing the Chinese army men. Playing the important roles, we see caricature figures who simply shout ‘Hindi-Chini Bhai Bhai’ after every fight and do not look like enemies to be taken seriously. Paltan is shot in real locations, the film recreates the 1965 setting, but does not represent the corresponding intensity. Director JP Dutta is also the screenplay and story writer is great at his unique and original style of storytelling. He gives repetitive battles and half-baked backstories that enhance the timeline of the narrative. The film should be watched to see the bromance between the jawans, their emotional connection is very convicing. All of this collectively blunts much of the desired impact of what could have been a riveting war film.

Paltan is a good film and the film is directed by JP Dutta who gives the audience a climax that offers a bitter sweet victory.
