the roots of tyrant west Pakistan...'

'...seemed to be loosing

their roots in the east.'

Nationalist revolutionaries...'

'...was on a all time high.'

Army 'Mukti Bahini'...

"Hello...this is

All India Radio, Delhi."

"I am Anand Trivedi."

"And now for the main headlines."

"Tension and violence continues

to build in East Pakistan."

"Pakistan's President

Yahya Khan has said..."

"..that the opposition groups

are getting open support from India."

"in return, Prime Minister

Indira Gandhi clarified that..."

"...India has no association with the internal

conflicts of its neighboring country."

"But if Pakistan decides

to take any military action..."

"...then our armies are capable

of giving a fitting reply."

Papa, if there's a

war will you have to go?

No, dear. You just heard.

This is between East

Pakistan and West Pakistan.

And Vizag is miles away.

We have nothing to fear.

Mr. President's instructions

are absolutely clear.

We cannot not lose hold

on the radicals in East Pakistan.

Sir, for that...our armies

must keep getting continuous supplies.

This is exactly why I was summoned.

We have a geographical disadvantage.

East Pakistan is landlocked

by India from all three sides.

Sending supplies by

road ways is impossible.

By air, the supplies

will be insufficient.

And anyway.

we'll have to enter Indian airspace.

In this situation...

we have only one option left.

The sea-route.

All the way...up here.

We can tackle the Indian fleet, but...

INS Vikrant!

You know...

The elephant of their sea.

21 aircrafts, Sea-Hawks,

Aleez, the French Anti-submarine jet.

Long range rocket launchers.

And with all that, INS Vikrant

can block this entire area.

Sinking very important.

It's not going to be easy.

I never said it would be.

And that's why we

must send our best team.

Depute Razzak

And if he fails in sinking

INS Vikrant, then...

...we must bring plan B into action.

Where we'll launch a surprise

attack on any one of the Indian ports.

They will shift their focus

on defending that port, and... up a sea-route for us.

Mrs. Gandhi has said...

- Sir!

Give it to Raman sir.

The intercepted message

has been decoded.

"Keep 2075TH hydraulic

oil in ample quantities."

2075TH Hydraulic oil?

But it's used only in

specialized naval vessels.

When was this message sent?

36 hours back, sir.

Karachi to Chittagong.


The obvious targets are Paradip.

Visakhapatnam, Madras...

...and Port Blair.

And if that's the case, then

they will launch a surprise attack.

Swift and from the high sea.

We must keep an eye on this area, sir.

What is the vessel status out there?

All deployed, sir...except S21.

Send it immediately...
