Not without flaws but a great movie
13 October 2015 | by sbmvv_2000See all my reviews

This is one of those movies that deserves to be properly subtitled in English.

In some ways the acting and delivery of dialogue is 1970s Bollywood but that should not take your attention away from a very good movie.

A lot of action, a very intriguing espionage angle and above all, vintage aircraft!

Even if you do not understand a word of Hindi, watch this movie for the vintage combat aircraft alone.

From Canberras and MiG-21s to Su-7s and Hunters, this movie has them all. The old Folland Gnats are featured and in an interesting twist, the IAF's Mysteres were repainted with PAF insignia to play F-86 Sabres.

The flying sequences are pretty dated but surprisingly good and the espionage subplot is handled very well indeed.

It is a feast for aviation aficionados for this alone.

The acting and dialogue is a little melodramatic and the dialogue delivery is "filmi" but this is still, even with those flaws an excellent movie and one worth watching.

It is a shame that an English subtitled DVD release has not been done for this classic war movie.
