Debutant director Amrit Sagar's forthcoming flick 1971 is all set to hit the theatres soon. The music of the movie was launched at INS Vikrant, one of the iconic warships of Indian Navy, as no other venue could have hosted this. INS Vikrant had played a major role in the Indian Victory in 1971 war. It had struck strategic targets in East Pakistan paving the way for early surrender of the Pakistani troops there.
Manoj Bajpai plays the lead role, with Bhojpuri actor Ravi Kishan, Deepak Dobriyal, Chitaranjan Giri, Kumud Mishro and Manav Kaul playing the other POWs.
