1971- India Pak War. One of the Best War films ever made.
13 April 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

1971 is the war story depicting the struggle of Indian prisoners of war in Pakistan. It shows how the Pakistani government treated Indian prisoners of war, past the Bangladesh Independence war. The bottom line is break and escape from the prison. The movie has resemblances with recently made film DEEWAR (starring Amitabh, Sajay Dutt etc). However this film is far more realistic than Deewar. Full points to the director Amrit Sagar. The portrayal of characters and the screenplay is exceedingly well. I recommend this film to every viewer. I barely know any actor in the movie other than Manoj Bajpai. Inspite of that, the maturity shown by other starlets is simply mind blowing. The storyline is so tight that there is not a single moment in film which makes you feel bored. Indians should encourage making of such films. I wish it "was" received well...It is high time that we start appreciating well made movies with a different story lineup.
