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

Far ahead of Its Time..... Overshadows "Border" and "Lakshya"......
7 January 2015 | by (Nepal) – See all my reviews

"Haqeeqat" is a war saga filmed in Ladakh capturing the Indo China War in 1962. The film shows the valor of Indian soldiers who fought with Chinese Army who hugely outnumbered them. The film goes into details like the anguishes the soldiers go through like hunger, separation from their beloved, severe bruises in the hand. The film starts on light note and heads to intense war saga where the choices are made on life and death, and country and family.

The film is beautifully pictured in the rugged landscapes of Ladakh. In a way, the film was ahead of its time technically. Watching this film, you won't believe it was shot in 60s with limited techniques as the cinematography equals from the movies like "Jab Tak Hai Jaan" or "Lakshya." Besides the camera work, the performances are to be watched out for. Dharmendra in his earlier roles look the most attractive; so is Priya Rajbansh who are given small but important roles. Balraj Sahni, Jayant, and Vijay Anand, as usual give remarkable performances. In the beginning, the film somewhat seems to be meandering, but as soon as the war sets, there is no stopping. In terms of script or details, the film surpasses "Border" or "Lakshya." In a way, it's a glory to see a classic from 60s made with limited techniques overshadowing a modern day film. Overall, "Haqeeqat" stands ahead of its time and pays tribute to the valor of numerous soldiers who lost their lives for their country.

Rating: 3 stars out of 4
