Review

Havaldar Balkar Singh, Captain Dhananjay Shergill and Lieutenant Sahil Naqvi are amongst numerous fatalities on India's side in the 1999 Kargil war against Pakistan. All 3 men had written their last letters to Kuljeet Kaur, Squadron Leader Vikram Singh, and Dr. Naqvi respectively. These letters were located 3 years later by IBN Reporter, Avinash Sarin, who entrusts them to two Indore-based slackers, Ali Shah and Sameer Suri, and asks them to deliver them to Chandigarh, Manali, and Leh respectively. Ali and Sameer set out to film this journey in order to get a graduation degree so that they can re-locate to America as well as televise it widely in order to convince the youth not to join any of India's armed forces. --imdb.com

Format: DVD
I was inspired to write this review in response to the reviewer who thinks that this is a Spanish-language film, and the other reviewer who seems to think this is a movie about soccer. Oh dear. Perhaps it should be said up front that this is a Hindi movie, filmed in India, about India, with Indian actors. Spanish and soccer are both completely unrelated.

The film opens with an Indian journalist visiting three soldiers stationed at the front during the 1999 Kargil war, fought between India and Pakistan in the region of Kashmir. The three soldiers each give the journalist their "last letters" - letters that are to be delivered to their family members in the event that the soldiers are killed in combat. As we learn very early on, each of the three soldiers are, in fact, killed during the war. Fast forward three years, and two slacker film students are about to fail film school unless they produce a "final film project" for their professor. The students decide to film a documentary on why you should *not* join the Indian army, and their first interviewee is the Indian journalist we met earlier. He decides to send them on a (hopefully) enlightening journey, and gives them the three soldiers' letters, instructing them to deliver the letters to the soldiers' families (it's never really explained why he held onto them these three years, except to use them as "research").

From this point onward, the film becomes a three-part tale, as the students travel to three disparate regions of India to visit three very different families. The stories of the three soldiers unfold, and we meet very different people. First there is the Punjabi Sikh (played beautifully by Salman Khan) from a rural village who left behind a widow (Preity Zinta) and young son, now struggling financially.

This movie brings back a lot of what we have all forgotten about patriotism for our country (does not matter which country we live in). A touching movie which will cause the tears to flow. As one that is part of the Military this hits home as it reminds us of why one would put there own life on the line for there nation. We have forgotten that there are things more important than ourselves that there is no better profession then that of protecting and serving the nation we live in.

This was nothing like I imagined after seeing promos which looked like Top Gun, and liking the really catchy contemporary songs which suggested something upbeat.
What the movie was really was was about 2 young men who are directionless and just focused on enjoying themselves, finding a new thoughtful commitment to life and growing up.
They are required to submit a movie to their film class to pass their degree and decide to make one about the futility of becoming a soldier. A war correspondent gives them 3 final letters (written 3 years before but overlooked) from now dead soldiers to their families. The young men begin a long trek across India to the 3 very different surviving families to deliver these letters to those they were addressed to.
The families are living with a wide range of emotions and reactions to the soldiers death - from pride to hate; always some consequences and a lot of grief, at a soldier going to his death.
Now that all sound pretty grim but it wasn't. Nor is war really a feature. It is about the human stories of the families left and the decisions of their sons.
It was really giving the views of both the 'for' and 'againsts' the decision to be in the army. It looks at patriotism and sees that as the motivation of the men to fight to protect their country.
No doubt this is simplistic. I'm sure there are many personality and situation reasons that contribute to such decisions and not just a love of country and wish to protect their brothers. However they do try to be balanced and make a point there are also other ways to serve a country apart from this. They adopt the sports coaching phrase 'watch your brothers back' and be there for others in whatever way suits.
