A still from Paltan: Chinese soldiers surrendering before Indian Army Jawans

A special screening of JP Dutta's 'Paltan' was recently organised for the Ministry of Defence and we hear the film got a standing ovation. 'Paltan', that tells the lesser-known story of the 1967 war between India and China, was highly appreciated by the members.
JP Dutta is particularly famous for his films showcasing the army's on-field action and for this, he had been invited by the Ministry of Defence for the third time to make a film on the iconic event in the history of the Indian Armed Forces. With 'Paltan', JP Dutta wants to reveal how India got its victory over China in 1967, which has not been talked about much.
This is the third time when JP Dutta, who has earlier delivered war films showcasing Indo-Pak wars, was invited by the Ministry to make a film on the iconic event. Based on the Nathu La military clashes of 1967 which took place along the Sikkim border, the film showcases an untold story about the Indian armed forces' battle to ward off a Chinese infiltration.

The National-award-winning director has earlier treated the audience with war films like Border, LOC Kargil, and Refugee. The third film of the war trilogy features Jackie Shroff, Arjun Rampal, Harshvardhan Rane, Gurmeet Choudhary, Abdul Qadir Amin, Sonu Sood, Sonal Chauhan, Esha Gupta, Monica Gill, Rohit Roy, Siddhant Kapoor, Luv Sinha, and Dipika Kakar.
