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

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.

If you love real heroes like military heroes, this movies demonstrates how heroic the surviving family members live after losing their loved ones. Don't reject it after the first few minutes. The movie says so many important things about family. May need tissues to dry your eyes while watching.

It's a well written script. Recommend watching it at least once, keeping in mind that you will be crying, A LOT. Felt pretty depressed right after, had to watch it as it has a complete A list star cast.

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.
