Based on real events in Bangladesh, 1971. The film is about how rape and religion were used as war weaponry. The film deals with the birth of Bangladesh in 1971, focusing on the genocide and when 400,000 women were raped and 3 million people were killed.

Heart wrenching movie showcasing human cruelty that is little too long
Any interpretation or depiction of any war or acts of terror is extremely hard and tough for director to showcase in cinematic form. Question always is how little its too much and Mrityunjay Devvrat's has done an excellent job of that in his debut movie.
Children of war is graphical beautiful depiction of the almost forgotten 1971 genocide happened in East Pakistan. The scenes to tend to get uncomfortably gory and long and I would think that the movie overall would have benefited from a shorter script. It's a long depressing watching genocides for more than two hours.
Sadly, enough the 1971 genocides have been forgotten and most of the younger generation are clueless about the sufferings. The movie could have benefited if they had put some context for today's generation.
The actors are par excellent and all have done an excellent job. I especially was fascinated by Pawan Malhotras evil, cruel, ruthless Pakistani General. Pawan finally got an opportunity to show his true talent.
Director has done an amazing job for first time holding the baton and I really look forward to seeing more movies from him.
Music score was OK but little too loud and took away from the moments at times.
The movie would have done lot better if it was shorter and crisper.
