Storyline

Havaldar Balkar Singh, Captain Dhananjay Shergill and Lieutenant Sahil Naqvi are amongst numerous fatalities on India's side in the 1999 Kargil war against Pakistan. All 3 men had written their last letters to Kuljeet Kaur, Squadron Leader Vikram Singh, and Dr. Naqvi respectively. These letters were located 3 years later by IBN Reporter, Avinash Sarin, who entrusts them to two Indore-based slackers, Ali Shah and Sameer Suri, and asks them to deliver them to Chandigarh, Manali, and Leh respectively. Ali and Sameer set out to film this journey in order to get a graduation degree so that they can re-locate to America as well as televise it widely in order to convince the youth not to join any of India's armed forces.

"You don't have to be a soldier to love your country"
27 February 2009 | by silverstarcastSee all my reviews

"Kabhi kabhi ek chota sa kadam, zindagi bhar ka rah ban jata hai." The journey from Delhi to Punjab to Himachal Pradesh, and finally Leh was it for Saand and Nawab Saab. Students of a film academy,Saand and Nawabsaab, have to submit a documentary for their graduation, the topic in jest was decided "Why not to join the Indian Army", but becomes more serious each day. The two guys meet a war journalist who hands them three last letters of soldiers who died in service, Saand and Nawabsaab take it upon themselves to deliver these three letters in hand, and record the experience. Each letter brings with itself a realization of how family and friends of a soldier are affected.

The first letter tells the story of a brave Punjabi soldier Balkaar Singh(Salman Khan), who leaves behind his parents, widow and child. Yet his every decision made his family and friends proud of him.

The second letter tells the story of two brothers(Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol), one in Air Force, one in Army, and how bravery and courage runs in their blood, how they are more than happy to dedicated their life and more to their country.

The third letter takes them to a young man Saahil (Dino Morea), who comes from a family of doctors, but joins the Army in spite of disapproval from his father.

The movie is very pleasant and says there's more to patriotism than war, bullets and politics. The reason the movie works, is because it tells a normal story with a funny bone and gives out subtle messages of patriotism.

In their own small way, Nawabsaab and Saand change the lives of the family of three great soldiers. They have made completed documentary, but does this journey end there? Will Nawaabsaab and Saand make their country proud ? Yes, they will. The ending is very touching.
