This hi-budget, multi-starrer film started out as a killer, as sixty were killed watching this film in Delhi when something exploded and set off smoke that raided the theater. The smoke was thought to be a special effect, when in real life it wasn't.
The movie also ended up deadly, with hundreds dead on a field and mothers crying as their sons are dead after fighting a vigorous war protecting their Mother, India.
The year is 1971 when the Pakistani Army is at war with the Indian Soldiers. The Indian battalion is posted in Longewala region in Punjab and are just 150 in number while the Pakistani Army consists of 2000 armed soldiers with tanks. This movie is a landmark in Hindi Cinema and watch how the drama unfolds and the Indian soldiers fight for the pride of their motherland. Commendable performances from Jackie Shroff, Sudesh Berry, Sunil Shetty and Sunny Deol and excellent acting by Akshay Khanna.
