Haqeeqat , the real war movie loosely based on real battle fought in Rezang la.
13 September 2015 | by saumitrayadavSee all my reviews

Haqeeqat was based on true incident. It was loosely based on the fierce battle fought in Rezang la by charlie battalion lead by major shaitan singh. Most of the soldiers of charlie battalion belongs to Rewari village & of yadav community. It was a great battle fought by this battalion who was totally outnumbered by Chinese army. The battle was so fierce that it was fought Benoite to Benoite & hand to hand combat , this too in the height of 14000 feet. The Indian battalion fought valiantly & kept control of Rezang la. Barring three or four soldiers everybody died including batallian commander shaitan singh. The movie was so realistic that it captured all the nonsense of war. Beautifully photographed with one of the best music this is not only one of the best war movie ever made in India & can be compared to any international movie. I will keep this movie in the League of All quiet at the western front. Chetan Anand the director should be remembered for making this absolute realistic War movie.
