History of 1971 INDO-PAK war
8 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

It is a very good movie directed by J.P Dutta. Describes the reality of what happened in the 1971 INDO-PAK war & how the 120 odd Indian men from PUNJAB REGIMENT were able to defeat the strong Pakistan Army of around 2400 men along with one entire Tank Regiment. Yes, this is true and most of the characters shown in the movie are also true. The music is melodious and one will not regret after watching the movie. The dialogues are OK and could have been better but the action scenes in the movie are mind-blowing. BORDER is a must watch movie for every Indian and also to be proud of what the Indian army has done for them in the past.
