Filmmaker JP Dutta is back in action with what he does best! After super hit films like Border, LOC Kargil, Refugee, Kshatriya and more, he has now returned with Paltan. This multi-starrer features Jackie Shroff, Arjun Rampal, Sonu Sood, Gurmeet Chaudhary, Luv Sinha, Harshvardhan Rane and Siddhant Kapoor. Set in 1967 when Indian soldiers had to protect Nathula Pass in Sikkim from China, the film is based on true events.
Now after intriguing the audience by unveiling posters of the leading men, the makers have now released the film's trailer. One look at the trailer is enough to suggest that JP Dutta's film is certainly an action-packed and quintessential war film, more like an extension to his previous films. Interestingly, it also wraps the trilogy of Dutta's war films.
The official handle of Zee Studios posted the trailer on Twitter.
The film’s trailer is laden with high octane laden scenes and the Indian soldiers look all geared up to take on their Chinese counterparts. The trailer mainly focusses on the Nathu La military clashes of 1967 which took place along the Sikkim border, with the leading men undertaking an intense battle to ward off the infiltration. Well, it won't be wrong to say that the trailer does make an impact but it is certainly full of the old war-tropes, widely explored in the filmmaker's previous films. There is something odd to see some of the actors (as Chinese soldiers) speaking in Mandarin while others fluent in Hindi as Arjun. Did we mention, trailer using phrases like ‘eyeball to eyeball’!
It will be interesting to see how the patriotism driven film fares at the box office.
Meanwhile, Paltan also marks the Bollywood debut of Sonakshi Sinha's sibling Luv and Television star Dipika Kakkar. Other than its leading men, Paltan also features Esha Gupta, Sonal Chauhan, Monica Gill in the roles of the women left behind longing for their lovers, who are battling the enemies at the borders.
Paltan is produced by JP Films and Zee Studios and is slated to release on September 7, 2018.
