Havaldar Balkar Singh, Captain Dhananjay Shergill and Lieutenant Sahil Naqvi are amongst numerous fatalities on India's side in the 1999 Kargil war against Pakistan. All 3 men had written their last letters to Kuljeet Kaur, Squadron Leader Vikram Singh, and Dr. Naqvi respectively. These letters were located 3 years later by IBN Reporter, Avinash Sarin, who entrusts them to two Indore-based slackers, Ali Shah and Sameer Suri, and asks them to deliver them to Chandigarh, Manali, and Leh respectively. Ali and Sameer set out to film this journey in order to get a graduation degree so that they can re-locate to America as well as televise it widely in order to convince the youth not to join any of India's armed forces.

I went to see this movie, without having much idea as to what it really was about but then the title almost gave it away Army.
Director Samir Karnik has handled the topic of the movie in what can only be said as a very well manner and has used the 1999 Kargil conflict as the back ground to the story in which he unfolds stories relating three soldiers who are killed after they give interview on a TV channel during the conflict. This reflects to the real life incident regarding the late Captain Vikram Batra, who many remember almost nine years after the conflict as he gave an interview during the conflict and was later killed in action. The movie portrays what happens to those family members who are left behind by their beloved ones when they are killed in a conflict whether it is Kargil, Afghanistan or Iraq.
The location setting also goes on to give the atmosphere of the area in which the conflict was fought and goes on to resurrect what village life is like for many of the families whose sons have joined the Army and how each one of them cope with the loss.
The movie seems to be a bit boring at the beginning but then it changes gear and the pace begins and manages to gain the audience attention and maintains that all the way through.
It makes a change to see Salman Khan wearing a turban and not removing his shirt, however, his performance could have been better but never the less, it is semi memorable, while his co star, Preity Zinta has suited the role of a village woman, who has to take care of her family and perhaps can be considered as a memorable one but it cannot be compared to "Veer Zaara". Other memorable performances are by Sunny Deol as an ex Air Force pilot who becomes disabled and has had to learn how to live and also Mithun Chakraborthy as a father who is unable bear the loss. But one actor has really gone up the scale in his performance is by Sohail Khan, as a youngster who is on a mission to make a documentary on the three families. Mohnish Behl also makes a friendly appearance.
Conclusion: The movie does echo the Katgil conflict in many ways more than one but it is worth while watching.
