Some Flaws in Indian War Movies
Directors of Indian war movies are not serious about showing realities in their films. They spoil a good story with adding songs, comedy, love stories and other things in it.There are few exceptions, but just exceptions.
I have watched lot of war movies from Bollywood and Hollywood. There is a big difference between the war films from these two places. We can not compare a Bollywood war movie with a Hollywood war movie on any front... story, direction, actions, war shots, photography.
Generally, you will not find a Hindi war movie without love story and the songs by the hero and heroine. So the movie becomes a love story of a soldier. War becomes just a situation between the love story.
Further, there is extreme exhibition of patriotism in Bollywood war movies. Almost every war movie from Bollywood have a patriotic song. The soldiers in the movies show extreme love for nation, by vigorous dialogues. Many times the dialogues are with abusive language for the enemy. Such dialogues make the viewers hysteric.
On technical scenario, the war shots in Bollywood movies are very poor. They are far away from the war in reality, and war shots in Hollywood films.
The masses in India are not mature enough. Most of the movie makers produce movies for such viewers. Further, the movie makers themselves are not matured.
In recent days, this situation is changing. I hope to watch realistic war movies in near future.
However, there are few good war movies from Bollywood and also from South India. I would like to refer some of them:
Haqueekat: A multi star film by Chetan Anand, based on 1962 Indo-China war.
Hindustan Ki Kasam: Another multi star film by same director, based on India-Pakistan war of 1971
Vijeta: A Govind Nihlani film, on the life of a fighter pilot
Border: A block buster war movie based on a battle at Longowal during Indo-Pak war 1971.
Tango Charlie: A story of two soldiers of Border Security Force
Lakshya: A nice film on Kargil war of 1999, starring Rhitik Roshan
Kurukshetra: A Malayalam film on Kargil war of 1999
Madras Cafe: A spy and war movie based on the war of Shrilanka.
