72 Hours Movie Review
The story of 72 hours is based on the life of a Rifleman, Jaswant Singh Rawat. 55 years ago during 1962 Indo-China war, when the destiny of war was pre-decided, there stood a brave soldier from the 4th Garhwal Rifle against all odds guarding our post from Nurunaang Base in Arunachal Pradesh then called NEFA border. He was awarded Mahavir Chakra for his posthumous bravery. He is said to be guarding the post even after his death. Jaswant Singh has attained the status of a deity at the Sino-Indian frontier. Even a temple has been erected in his memory and the Army has posted five soldiers for the upkeep of his memorial. The movie basically is his biography and mainly deals with Indo-China war of 1962. Check our 72 hours movie review to know more.
As mentioned earlier the story is about how one soldier braves extreme weather conditions and fights against all odds to protect Indian borders from its international enemies. 72 Hours: Martyr Who Never Died’ starts off on a high note, but gradually becomes one long dialogue about a soldier and his determination to protect the Indian state from being taken over by the Chinese military. Time and again, Rifleman Jaswant’s superiors commend him for his fearlessness, but the makers fail to show what has inspired such a following for the soldier. The love story between Noora (Yeshi Dema) and the soldier is never given a chance to blossom. There are too many random cuts in the movie and the fight scenes don’t always look authentic. Over all the movie can be quite a boring one. So you can just wait for it to be aired on the television rather than going for it to the theatre if you really wish to watch it.
