Verdict: A close look at a defining chapter in Indian history. Director J.P. Dutta, whose last film was the 2006 film Umrao Jaan, comes back to film-making after a gap of 12 years with Paltan - a multi-starrer war-drama based on the true events of the 1967 Indo-China face-off. Presented by Zee Studios and produced by J.P. Dutta Films, Paltan’s trailer had created quite a buzz because of the film... ...Read full review
Shot in real locations, Paltan recreates the 1965 setting, but not the corresponding tension. Director JP Dutta who is also the screenplay and story writer, stays quite rooted to his original style of storytelling. But he uses repetitive conflicts and half-baked backstories that add more to the runtime than the narrative. Bromance between the jawans lacks emotional depth and conviction. All of this collectively blunts much of the desired impact of what could have been a riveting war film. ...Read full review

The 1967 dispute Paltan is based on is intriguing, a one-day crossfire that ended with China waving the white flag rather impressive considering their brutal victory over India in 1962. There isnt much to the actual incident, however, and Dutta saves all his action for a climactic push after forcing us to sit through two hours of clenched jaws, boots on gravel and bad dialogue. Paltan is mounted on a large enough scale, or at least it has enough uniformed extras to give that illusion, but what is the point to its overarching dullness? ...Read full review
It isnt especially hard to point out what ails JP Duttas Paltan. The veteran filmmaker who relied on a shrewd combination of chest-thumping patriotism and genuine heartfelt emotion to deliver a stirring message on the futility of war in 1997s Border, fails to reinvent the wheel in his latest outing. ...Read full review
