Indian Army Sepoy Tarun Chauhan is assigned to proceed to Northeastern part of India that has been rocked by riots and violence with orders to report to his superior, Havaldar Mohammed Ali. Once there, he comes to know that things can be quiet for weeks, following by sporadic violence, and casualties on both sides. His group also comes under attack by vicious terrorists, who like to cut an ear from a dead body, then leave the body as bait, in order to kill anyone who comes to the rescue. This is where Tarun makes his first kill. Then they are instructed to proceed to Bengal in order to counter Naxalities, where Tarun gets to see action almost immediately. Then war breaks out between India and Pakistan and their group is asked to travel to Kargil and guard a bridge. This is where Tarun will face his biggest challenge - a challenge that will make him a true soldier or lead him to his death. Written by
TANGO CHARLIE is in a class of it's own. It's not really a war film. It's actually an anti-war film. I'm not going to reveal any part of the story. All I'll say is that it's worth a look. It's very realistic and keeps you on the edge of your seat.
There have been many war films released in the last year or so. But Tango Charlie is not like any of them. Even the reason behind the name TANGO CHARLIE is quite original for the Indian Cinema.
Out of the cast, it's Ajay Devgan who leads the pack. His performance is amazing to say the least. He is very comfortable in this role and makes you feel like he's a real soldier. Kelly Dorji is another guy to watch out for. The role seems tailor made for him. Bobby Deol does a decent job. Sanjay Dutt and Suniel Shetty are excellent in small but memorable roles. Nandana Sen leaves a mark. Tanishaa is getting better with each performance.
Nitin Manmohan needs to be congratulated for having the guts to make a different kind of film. Mani Shankar has done an incredible job with the direction. Surendra Reddy's cinematography deserves a special mention. Every frame makes you feel like you're right there with the actors.
On the whole, TANGO CHARLIE is different. It leaves you with something to think about and is quite entertaining.
