Storyline

Indian Army lawyer, Major Siddhant Chaudhary, has not only to deal with his father's death, but must also defend Captain Javed Khan. The later, charged with killing a decorated Major Virendra Singh Rathore, under various statutes of Indian laws & the Army Act, refuses to defend himself, admits to this killing, and awaits a guilt finding via a Court Martial. Siddhant decides to delve deeper, much to the chagrin of his prosecutor-friend, Major Akash Kapoor, not realizing that he will incur the wrath of his superiors; his work will come under sharp scrutiny; the journalist, Kaavya Shastri, assisting him will be arrested; and he may end up being transferred to violent and isolated areas in Assam and Bihar.

User Reviews

a good effort
22 July 2011 | by sharimohanSee all my reviews

It may look like a remake of a few good men but its an earnest effort...wished the maker had carried out more research and also padded it up more commercially a must watch performances of the entire cast is top notch with Rahul Bose again displaying enough to prove his versatilely.... Minissa Lamba does not look like a journalist by any distance.... some of the story seems to be wanting in content and adaptation..... Court Martial scenes seem more from the US Army set up... Javed Jaffery and Kay Kay are outstanding as ever.... It would have been better if there were some more lighter moments ... scenes like the search in the village are very authentic and are tense... ......
