Storyline

Indian Army Sepoy Tarun Chauhan is assigned to proceed to Northeastern part of India that has been rocked by riots and violence with orders to report to his superior, Havaldar Mohammed Ali. Once there, he comes to know that things can be quiet for weeks, following by sporadic violence, and casualties on both sides. His group also comes under attack by vicious terrorists, who like to cut an ear from a dead body, then leave the body as bait, in order to kill anyone who comes to the rescue. This is where Tarun makes his first kill. Then they are instructed to proceed to Bengal in order to counter Naxalities, where Tarun gets to see action almost immediately. Then war breaks out between India and Pakistan and their group is asked to travel to Kargil and guard a bridge. This is where Tarun will face his biggest challenge - a challenge that will make him a true soldier or lead him to his death. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Underrated classic
15 July 2019 | by SinglePlexSee all my reviews

Even 14 years ago when the nation was way less polarized than it is now, a film examining the ugliness of perpetual war with certain communities within India and the disillusionment with the military-industrial complex did not impress the fragile nationalism of 'patriots'. It is no wonder that this film isn't to be found even on streaming services, that have resurrected gems like 'Kidnap' and 'God Tussi Great Ho' from the same period. Much like "Green Zone (2010)" that asked similar questions about US intentions and actions in the perpetual war in middle east, neither critics nor audiences had any love for either of these films. Funnily enough, attacks on the bureaucracy are not taboo as evidenced by the success of films like 'Enemy of the State' or 'Minority Report'. It's the military that's usual sacred. Only wanted to put it out there for any fans of this film, that you're not alone. I felt both TC and Green Zone were well written, tightly plotted, very well cast (especially Kelly Dorjie in TC) and quite entertaining. Politics aside, they are competent films with earnest performances. If you get a chance, watch it and share your opinion here
