The much-awaited war drama of the year, Pal­tan marks the com­ple­tion of the war tril­ogy by JP Dutta, fol­low­ing his films Bor­der (1997) and LOC Kargil (2003). Pal­tan, based on the Nathu La mil­i­tary clashes which took place along the Sikkim bor­der in 1967, pays an ode to the brave sol­diers of the In­dian Army who were part of the war at that time. The en­sem­ble cast of the film, is set to take the au­di­ence through the riv­et­ing, un­told story of the bravest In­dian sol­diers. In­ter­est­ingly, the re­lease date of the film also has a great sig­nif­i­cance. The war drama hits the screens in the same week as the In­dia-china war, which took place on Septem­ber 11 over 50 years ago. “I’ve been blessed by the almighty that I have been cho­sen to im­mor­talise our sol­diers for the coun­try in the films that I make. Pal­tan show­cases an un­told story of a bat­tle, which most of In­dia, in­clud­ing my­self, did not know about. It’s a his­toric mile­stone for the In­dian Army. The brav­ery and val­our this ‘pal­tan’ had shown in 1967 and their will to go be­yond the call of duty for our moth­er­land, needs to be told on the big screen and be cel­e­brated,” says JP Dutta. Shariq Pa­tel, CEO, Zee Stu­dios added, “We have al­ways be­lieved in telling in­spir­ing tales of pa­tri­o­tism, and through this film, we pay trib­ute to all the sol­diers of the In­dian armed forces.” The pop­u­lar mu­si­cal trio — Javed Akhtar, Anu Ma­lik, and Sonu Nigam — known for the soul-stir­ring song San­dese Aate Hain, from Bor­der, have once again col­lab­o­rated with JP Dutta for Pal­tan. With power-packed per­for­mances in store for the au­di­ences, by the en­sem­ble star cast com­pris­ing Jackie Shroff, Ar­jun Ram­pal, Sonu Sood, Gurmeet Chaud­hary, Harsh­vard­han Rane, Luv Sinha, and Sid­dhanth Kapoor, the film tells the story of our un­sung and brave he­roes. Pre­sented by Zee Stu­dios, pro­duced by JP Films, Pal­tan, re­leases to­day.
