PALTON Movie Rating: 2 /5
User Rating: 3/5
“PALTAN” is based on the true story of India and China Military war in 1967 on Nathu La Pass, Sikkim Border. Nathu La Pass is a key strategic road between India and China. PALTON is war drama to aware the untold story on Indian soldiers bravery and wining explanation. This was an incident after 5 years of India and China war and China never expected the solid reply from Indian Army. This becomes the life lesson for China because after this war China never tried to attack over India. Director J. P. Dutta (who directed blockbusters like Border & LOC Kargil) decides to make the movie on this untold story of Indian Army Bravery. The movie has been shot in a real location.
This incident was started with small clashes and argument when China told Indian army to go back and leave the Nathu La Pass of Sikkim Border, after that it becomes the reason of clashes and arguments between soldiers of both countries. To avoid this hassle India started pulling the chain of barbed wire in Nathu La pass and to prevent the Indian army from the same, Chines tried to stop the Indian soldiers but Indian soldiers continue their work, a few minutes later Chinese attack on Indian soldiers. And between 10 minutes 70 Indian soldiers died. After that India replied with a solid attack and defeated China.
Acting: PALTAN is a story of brave Indian soldiers played by Jackie Shroff (Major General Sagat Singh) and Lieutenant Colonel Arjun Rampal (Rai Singh Yadav), Sonu Sood (Major Bishen Singh), Captain Prithvi Singh Dagar (Gurmeet Chaudhry), and Harsh Vardhan Rane (Major Harbhajan Singh). All the actors played their part decently. But due to the weak script and unmatched written dialogues actors didn’t get enough scope to live their characters. Actors who played the roles of chines soldiers are not acted well and their dialogue delivery in Hindi makes it feel so strange.
Direction: J. P. Dutta well known for directing Super Hit war drama movies like Border & LOC Kargil. A story of the movie is also written by J.P. Dutta. This time J.P. Dutta direction is below expectation and very average too. Story writing, Dialogues, and movie shooting all lack this time in Movie PALTAN. This movie disappointed us a lot.
The patriotism of the Indian Army for the country and their bravery and the intention of telling the untold story is appreciated.
