Unlike the West, Indian Cinema hasn’t got many movies made on the subject of War. The filmmakers lead by financial motives, somehow did not find the genre commercially viable or capable of resulting in profitable figures. But out of the handful movies attempted by some serious directors in this genre, we still have a worth watching Gem to recall with an apt title “Haqeeqat” (The Reality). Thoughtfully directed by the legendary Chetan Anand and melodiously equipped by the musical maestro Madan Mohan, the black & white Classic still remains “The Best Project” on the subject of War and its consequences in Hindi Cinema till date.

Based on the Indo-China war, it’s a realistic take on the War Front where thousands of people are shot like lifeless targets. Where along with soldiers from both the sides, the undisclosed victims of a war are the innocent civilians living on the borders in their small villages. Directed from the prospective of a nation which has never attacked any neighboring country, the movie is unarguably full of text book material on film-making. Shot on the original and beautiful location of Laddakh and superbly acted by every single person in the star-cast, “Haqeeqat” is a strong & worthy representative of Indian Cinema all over the world. With immortal songs like “Main Yeh Soch Kar”, “Hoke Majboor Mujhe” and “Kar Chale Hum Fida Jan-o-Tan Sathiyo” it becomes a mandatory watch for every Hindi Cinema lover around the globe and you simply cannot afford to miss it.
