Best Indian War Movie Ever!
24 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Border is the best war movie with mind-blowing action. Everyone gave powerful performances, lead by my favorite star, Sunny Deol. He was perfect as the brave Sardarji armyman, and this is definitely his greatest performance of the 90's (even more intense than Ghayal, Ghatak, Ziddi). He is the true action hero above others. He is so inspirational and very commanding to the point that you truly feel the patriotism and determination and love for your nation. This is definitely, one of the most powerful and realistic (based on 1971 Indo-Pak war) action movies that I have ever seen. It is as others say, "Men at their best! War at its worst!" This is a must watch for all Indians who really do love their country. It is shocking that despite the fact that this was the biggest blockbuster in '97, it was practically ignored by the corrupt and biased media. Border should have swept nearly all awards (it was worthy of Oscars). Watch this movie! 12/10.
