JP Dutta returns to direction after 12 years with Paltan.

The trailer of the upcoming Bollywood war drama film Paltan was released on Thursday. The film stars Arjun Rampal, Jackie Shroff, Sonu Sood, Gurmeet Choudhary and more as Indian Army soldiers, protecting the borders from incoming Chinese forces.

The trailer begins with stock war footage and helps us revise how India lost the war of 1962 against China. Five years later, a small group of Indian soldiers are at loggerheads with the Chinese forces at the border of Sikkim, fighting to ward them away.

A misplaced apostrophe.
Sonu Sood lets the fake rain and blue tint wash over him.

There is a lot of needless screaming, stone pelting and gun fire in the trailer. Cowardly women (as usual) tell their brave husbands to not go to war and Chinese soldiers that speak the most fluent Hindi. There are also grammatical errors, fake rain and scenes shot in daytime and passed off as ‘night shots’ with a blue tint.

Watch it here:

Paltan is based on the 1967 Nathu La military clash that took place along the Sikkim border. With Paltan, JP Dutta returns to direction after a 12-year long gap. The national-award-winning director had earlier treated the audience with war films like Border, LOC Kargil, and Refugee.

Presented by Zee Studios and produced by JP Dutta Films, the flick is slated to hit the silver screen on September 7.
