There was a lot of buzz when Kesari was announced. The audience knew that if Akshay Kumar is making a film, it has to be good, but they did not expect it to be this exceptional. The film forays into the time when 21 Sikh soldiers fought against an attack by over 10,000 Afghan invaders. The film is based on the Battle of Saragarhi and the extent that these soldiers go to serve their soil is nerve-wracking. Some scenes in the film will give you literal chills and also educates you about one of the most fearless battles ever fought. Watch the film for some soulful songs, some a-class action scenes on Amazon Prime Video.


John Abraham chooses his projects very wisely and after watching Parmanu, we understood why he chose this film. The story revolves around how a team of soldiers and scientist work together meticulously to make India the sixth country in the world to have nuclear weapons. Based on a true story, the team faces challenges like protecting themselves from the intrusive eyes of their enemies who are tracking their every move. Knowing that this has happened in real life only makes you wonder how these brave hearts carried out such a dangerous mission and makes you respect them even more. Watch this film for John in action on Zee5.


Another gem is Alia Bhatt starrer Raazi. The film is yet again another film inspired by true events. The film tells the real story of Sehmat Khan who had a major contribution in Indian army receiving critical information about the Pakistani army. Sehmat (Alia) is an Indian spy who is married off to a Pakistani officer (Vicky Kaushal). She is trained to use her position and help the Indian army take down Pakistan army’s plans to defeat India, The film was packed with emotions and was surely a nail-biting experience. Watch the film for some adrenaline rush only on Amazon Prime Video.


We cannot make a list of movies based on our soldiers and not include this film. Border starring Suneil Shetty, Sunny Deol, Akshaye Khanna and others, this film is one of the oldest memory we all have of a war film. The film which was awarded three National awards is a beautiful story based on the real story of the Battle of Longewala. It was during this battle when Pakistani attacked us on the border of Rajasthan. While the Indian army was outnumbered with only 120 soldiers on the battlefield, they did not spare any chance to win. They managed to hold their ground and a memorial museum in their honour was made on the same spot. The museum has the destroyed Pakistani tanks on showcase as well. Watch this film to listen to its beautiful tracks, its gripping story and some marvellous performances only on Zee5.

In the coming future too, we hope to see many uplighting, moving and heart-wrenching movies based on the lives of our soldiers that celebrate their bravery and strong minds. Join us in wishing our gallant soldiers a very happy Army Day.
