Did You Know?


The map shown by the R&AW officer is a badly drawn version, with several glaring mistakes: Pakistan-occupied Kashmir would be shown as Indian territory in all official Indian maps, but is shown as Pakistani territory. Pakistan would have been West Pakistan then, and would have been labeled as such. East Pakistan or Bangladesh is simply absent from the picture. See more »

Literally out of ammo
8 April 2017 | by bivinphSee all my reviews

The movie begins with colonel Mahadevan commanding a UN mission. The mission scenes were short and the focus soon shifted to retired major Sahadevan. The film shifts to a flash back to the 1971 period. By the way Mohanlal has got really fat. But that didn't stop the versatile actor from pumping patriotism into our veins. However the plot wasn't interesting enough to keep you on your edges. The movie begins to lag after a point making it boring to watch. An unnecessary song sequence just added to the boredom. It was only until the tank scene, things started to get interesting again. The movie in a whole wasn't convincing enough regarding various emotional scenes. There was an attempt to recreate Jeeva's character in Keerthichakra but again wasn't convincing enough. The entire film tries to tell us why Sahadevan was impressed by the valor of Colonel Raja but as the viewers we just couldn't feel it. Frankly speaking Picket 43 and Keerthichakra could kick this movie out of the park.
