Such Kind of movies need audience!!
15 January 2014 | by abhishekagrawal7408See all my reviews

There are many good Indian movies which are left unnoticed. 1971 is one of them.In fact, its a great movie which deserves every bit of appreciation and applauds. Kudos to director (Amrit Sagar) for handling such a sensitive issue with such an ease. Its a story about 6 Indian POW's kept in a Pakistani Jail and their struggle to reach their motherland. The plot is so engaging that you never get bored even for a second. This kind of movies makes you believe in a world called "HOPE". Acting wise, each and every character has done justice to their roles. But for me, Manoj Bajpai steals the show. Every time I watch him, it amuses me the versatility of his acting skills. This has to be one of the 'finest' Indian movie based on war and their after effects. i will rate it as 8.5
