1971

Set against the backdrop of a POW camp in Pakistan, Amrit Sagar's directorial debut follows six Indian prisoners, awaiting release after their capture in the 1971 India-Pakistan war, who against all odds attempt to make a daring escape. What ensues is a gut-wrenching chase, across unyielding terrain, where these men brave inhuman weather conditions and the constant threat of the Pakistani officials on the hunt for their stray prisoners. Featuring a stunning cast, and striking just the right balance of action and drama, this film is based on historical fact. With music by Akash Sagar.
