JP Dutta’s third war film Paltan has accumulated Rs 3 crore in two days of its box office run. Paltan stars Jackie Shroff, Arjun Rampal, Sonu Sood, Harshvardhan Rane, Esha Gupta, Sonal Chauhan and others, played a remarkable role in the film.
The movie is based on the 1967 Nathula pass clashes near the Sikkim Border. This war occurred after the Indo-China 1962 war and this is what the movie is all about. The movie showcases the untold story of the Indian forces facing off in an intense battle to defeat Chinese infiltration in 1967 which took place near the Sikkim border.
Talking about the story of Paltan, Dutta had earlier said, “This is something which was never told and read before about this Skirmish that took place in Nathula. Someone told me about this incident and I felt interested to work on this. This is how it inspired me to make a movie.”
However, Paltan opened its account at Rs 1.25 crore. Whereas, on the second day, it earned Rs 3 crore. Paltan has received mixed critical reception.
