This film is an attempt to

understand our soldiers

They're no figthing machines

they're human, like us

They have feelings of hope and

despair; joys and sorrows too

Responding to the call

of duty, however

they have always forgotten

their personal miseries

to devote themselves in the

preservation of the country's unity

Our film is dedicated to

those brave soldiers

PUKAR:

What happened?

- Entry ahead is forbidden

The senior leader Mr Mishra

wants to visit the temple

We have orders

We can't let anyone through

What's up? Something wrong?

We have information that Abhrush

is hiding in those hills

We have sealed the area

and are combing it

Civilians are not allowed ahead

- That's a problem

I had pledged to offer prasad

at Lord Shiva's temple today

If I don't make it

It's so nearby

I'll be back in a moment

Sorry, sir It's dangerous ahead

- What danger with you here?

You could send some soldiers with me

I'll say my prayers and return

I'll talk to your seniors, too

Subedar, get into the car

Karnail Singh take four men

and escort him

Do you know who Abhrush is?

You don't!

Had you known, you wouldn't have

argued to agree to his conditions!

Abhrush is responsible for killing

800 people in 16 countries

60 lives were lost in the explosion

he engineered in Kashmir last year

12 of our top officers

have been killed

Abhrush is today the most dreaded

terrorist in the world

Our soldiers have taken pains

to surround him in Mastan valley

And you ask us to give him

free passage to save a life!

Had Mishra not gone to the temple

and fallen in Abhrush's trap

Abhrush would have been

in our captivity!

He is pressurising us only

because of your Mr Mishra!

Should we give in to them even once,

it'll set a precedent

No, sir the Minister has called

the emergency meeting only to

If you could use a safer method

than the commando operation

Mr Mishra is a senior leader

of our country

We've got to answer the public

- We've got to lay down our lives!

You're worried about Mr Mishra

We're worried about the nation!

What you say is right

But this is delicate

If the mission fails

Our mission will not fail!

It's for delicate situations as this

one that commondos are trained!

This is no time for arguments

My men are risking their lives to

save someone they don't even know!

Don't forget this has to do with

the security of the country!

We must only pray for the success

of the mission nowThat's all

Abhrush here put your

CO on the line

Abrush for you, sir

- How did he access our frequency?

You bastard! You have

gone back on your word

I was promised free passage

across the border

in exchange for Mishra's life

But you have set

your commandos after me

Not at allwhat are

you talking about?

I know where your

commandos will land

Now look, Abhrush

I will

None of them will escape

They'll all be killed

Now look, Abhrush

How did he get to know

of our mission?

The enemy knows of our mission!

They're jumping over

- Stop those who haven't!

The enemy knows of our mission

My boys have already

taken the plungel must go!

How about the C's orders?

- Tell him we got it late!

We've felled of them, sir!

We're following the other who

sailed ahead in the parachute

Find them and bury them

in the snow

Officer! Save me!

Major! Let me go!

Name your price!

I'll send it to your house!

Trying to buy me out,

you son-of-a-b*tch!

I'd have buried you alive

if I weren't in uniform!

Why've you stopped, priest?

No short-cuts in the prayers

Didn't I tell you?

I'm performing this ritual

for my son's long life

Make sure you do it properly

- Sorry for the break, madam!

But I'm waiting for the fruits

- Anjali said you had everything

Where's Anjali?

- You're looking for her, too?

I asked her to sew this button again

- Where are you going in uniform?

You're looking forward to

your son's arrival, Gayatri

And I, retired Lieutenant

General Rajvansh,

am getting ready to welcome

a brave soldier

He's returning from a dangerous

mission he could've been killed

Hush! Here I am, praying

for his long life and you

But where's Anjali?

- Everybody's looking for her

Anjali! Anjali, dear

He's here, looking

for his daughter

Wait there, General!

Wow! In your uniform, eh?

Had you told me, I'd have come

in my uniform too

So how are you, lady?

How's the ritual going?

You do take pains, don't you?

I remember You did it

even when I saved your husband

You saved me, did you?

The same old yarn again!

No yarnl ran four miles,

carrying him on my shoulders

miles! Wasn't it more really?

- Everybody knows the truth!

The newspapers even carried

a picture of it wow

It was possible because I

- Skip the old yarn, please

The rituals aren't over yet

And where's Anjali?

She's my daughter, no doubt

But she stays here

Where is she?

Glory to India!

Victory to India!

You get a posting in your

home-town after years

And you haven't yet

telephoned your folks

I was about to call them, sir

- Your father called

He wanted to know whether he could

see youAnd how could I reply?

I was preparing a report, sir

- I've sanctioned a week's leave

Go home and have a good time

with the family

Have you mentioned how you

disobeyed me in this mission?

No, sir

- Why not?

You can put it in your remarks, sir

- And what reason do I cite?

You ordered the mission to be

aborted, to save our lives

But you had faith in us that

we would succeed in the mission

How could I betray

your trust, sir?

May you live long

Their daughter, Pooja

Your name?

Looks like you don't recognise me?

- Of course you're the mayor!

I'm holding a big function on

Independence Day eve

You must perform in it

- Wellwhat show is it?

We pay tributes to the soldiers who

succeeded in Operation Vijay

and celebrate our Independence

I'm roping in great artistes

Lata Mangeshkar will also attend

Lataji? In our town?

Your dance was great

- I'm glad someone liked it

Only an ass wouldn't like it

- That's the one I'm watching

Must I make him do the parade?

- No I'll be Court Martial someday

Anjali and her temper

God save Jai!

Our suspicions were right, Husain

The army intelligence report says

that it was the ISl who sent

Abhrush here, on a top mission

Seeking safe-passage after being

surrounded was also a farce

He wanted to penetrate the

country even further

What could his mission be?

- Whatever, sir it's hot air now

He's in our custody now

- No

We mustn't forget the traitors in

our country, who're helping him

and who'll try to have him released

- True

Our unit has a mole too who has

leaked out the secret of our mission

Entrust this case to the

best of your officers

Make Abhrush talk as

soon as possible

Another ugly incident and

the public will lose faith in us

The military's prestige is

at stake understand?

What're you doing out in the cold?

Why didn't you attend the party?

I don't attend parties anymore, son

- But you must, uncle
