Paltan, directed by JP Dutt is going to be released on September 7 2018. It stars, Arjun Rampal, Sonu Sood, Gurmeet Choudhary, Harshvardhan Rane and Siddhanth Kapoor. It is based on the real life events of Nathu La military clashes of 1967 which took place on the Sikkim Border. The movie is going to portray the struggles of Indian army as the Chinese forces tried to inflirate and cross the border. The movie, surprisingly, is being touted as one of the biggest war movies made in India. JP Dutta, has been in familiar territory twice, once in the classic Border, and then in LOC Kargil.
The teaser released shows the previous two movies in their war torn glories, and then the short clip from the upcoming movie, of the soldier walking through a rocky terrain. As the years have gone by, Dutta’s technique has also sharpened, and it seems that Paltan is going to boast some of the most thrilling and big visuals about war that are yet to be seen in a Bollywood movie.
The cast also looks promising, being headed by Arjun Rampal, who has always excelled in characters that show courage and stoicism. Sonu Sood, who is often known for his action support in the movies, playing shirt ripping characters is also an exciting addition, as the movie is going to be a different genre from his usual comedy action field of interest. Its also interesting that none of the actors in the movie are big stars, which is good because it won’t distract from the overall quality of the movie. The country has had a surge of stories that could be described as Nationalistic in nature, because they are made for people with a zeal of patriotism for their homeland. It will be fascinating to see a how Paltan perfors on the Box office, because if it is able to get the approval of audiences, it could prove to be a huge hit across the nation.
