In the film, special care has also been taken of the locations, which makes it even easier to connect to the film.
Alia Bhatt is in the main character in the film and all the other characters revolve around her. Alia Bhatt has brought her character to the screen with great maturity. In the film, where the character of Aaliya shows the innocence of a 20-year-old girl on the one hand, on the other hand, there is also the passion to do anything for the country. At the same time, talking about other characters, Vicky Kaushal has also played his character well. Apart from this, Soni Razdan, Jaideep Ahlawat, Rajit Kapoor, Shishir Sharma and Ashwanth Bhatt are also seen playing strong and good roles.

Why watch the movie
- There are many reasons to watch the film, one of which is to be associated with the real-life character of this story. This film is based on a true story. A girl who played a very important role in the Indo-Pak war of 1971 and helped to win the country.
- For a long time, a film has not been made with such precise direction on such a great story in Bollywood.
- This is Alia Bhatt’s best performance ever. Which can be turned to theaters to see.
- … and the most important reason is that for a long time, such a great film on patriotism has not been made. If we talk about the past, we remember the 1997 film Border. Although this film has no match with him, but the spirit of patriotism seems to be a step ahead in it.
