Storyline

Set against the Sino-Indian War of 1962, the film's main plot concerns a small platoon of Indian soldiers in the hilly terrain of Ladakh who are considered dead but are rescued by Ladakhi tribesmen and by Capt. Bahadur Singh (Dharmendra). They are asked to retreat from their post (chowky) as the Chinese have surrounded them. Capt. Bahadur Singh and his girlfriend Almo (Priya Rajvansh) die holding the Chinese at Bay so that their comrades can retreat to safety. But even the retreating soldiers are heavily outnumbered and give up their lives for the country. Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

Best war movie
29 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Young Dharmendra at his best. Dharmendra looks so young and smart in army's uniform. Actors like Balraj Sahni and Vijay Anand are too good. Best was movie that Bollywood has produced. Content is based on China war, the difficulties that our army faced in the war are highlighted very well. Songs are amazing. Mohammad Rafi in Kar Chale hum , Mai ye, Hoke, sounds like an angel. Film seems to be shot at beautiful Laddakh. A silent love story goes parallel with the main plot. All the crew like Mac Mohan, Sudhir, as troops have done phenomenally well. There are very good performances from Jayant and Balraj Sahni as well. Black and white shot at Laddakh, army camps, jeeps, etc, strongly recommended. No way rated below 10 out of 10.
