A truly good movie
19 July 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Its absolutely baffling that people have commented so harshly on this movie, while "KeerthiChakra" a melodramatic and exaggerated version of the Kargil war has been applauded. I must admit initially I did make a mistake in mixing the two titles up. Every aspect of this movie has been thoroughly researched and precise. The cost of human lives has not been discounted in this war film. The lost to the nation and more to each soldier's family has been perfectly portrayed. Technically sound, the songs were melodious with a heart wrenching Hindi patriotic song was the crowning jewel. Realism was evident in every scene so much so that even while showing the Pakistani soldiers, they weren't painted as all black, there are the bad elements but some as always are the reluctant soldiers. The dialogs were appropriate and to the point, without any attempt to make it sound extra patriotic. In the culminating stages of the movie the hand to hand combat between Mohanlal and his Pakistani counterpart was innovative and perfect. The ending was beautiful, reflecting what most of us don't know we lost in spite of winning all 3 wars with Pakistan.
