Wonderful Movie
25 September 2005 | by drkshad0See all my reviews

Granted my copy of the VCD print was horrible - but the movie in itself it phenomenal. The credible footage of commando training is awesome - and seeing Nana himself do some of the scenes seems unbelievable.

The final 15 minutes of the movie are to die for. His dialogue delivery is superb - as one might come to expect from a stalwart like Nana.

It was nice to see my old Regiment (Maratha Light Infantry) on film - we boys do kick a**! :-) I could find myself nodding with Nan's take on society... for it's the sad truth! A bitter pill we all need to realise.

I also found my self drawing parallels with this film and the major theme of Tom Clancy's excellent book "Without Remorse".

In any case, a deserving film to see. The print isn't great and there are some glaring editing gaffes - but it's a 1991 film, and the gaffes aren't so horrible that they stick out like sore thumbs. The flow is non-stop. The story solid.

Budgetary constraints are readily apparent - and as are certain scenes which seem contrived rather than believable (some scenes with the terrorists makes it seem like it is easier than it is). But one can write this off to keeping the theme simple to sell to the masses.

Watch this film - you won't regret it.

"And that's a soldier's word" :-)
