The teaser of the cinematic masterpiece, the first ever on a Param Vir Chakra recipient; titled on the name of the martyr Subedar Joginder Singh has bombarded the internet, having crossed 2 million views within 12 hours of its release across all social media portals.
The inspiration to make this film on the brave Indian soldier who served the British Indian Army, and later the Indian Army is drawn from the true to life events and incidents of his life that led him to become what he became and is now remembered in a reverential tone.
This teaser connected to the sentiments that every Indian have inside him/her, the sentiment of 1962 diplomatic debacle due to Chinese betrayal and fuel in the fire is the ongoing contest going on between two Asian giants in the Doklam Plateau near the Tri-Junction of India, Tibet and Bhutan.
To meet the contemporary diplomatic expectations globally and thus counter Chinese and its insurgency into the respective regions, India has invited ten ASEAN head of states, who mutually share such concerns, at the Republic Day parade. Whereas this teaser takes us back to the time when even though defeat was certain but our soldiers stood their ground and as said in the teaser “Joginder Singh is the most experienced and valiant soldier of the Sikh Regiment, and his mere presence at Tawang sector will make difficult for the Chinese to trespass into the Indian Territory”, which was quite legitimate to say because Subedar Joginder Singh proved his sheer mental strength in order to motivate his troops and physical strength when he alone killed more than 50 Chinese soldiers.
Meanwhile, Subedar Joginder Singh’s teaser is gaining appreciations from India and overseas on both YouTube and Facebook and the teaser’s last dialogue “For your kind information, this land belongs to India” is viral especially amongst the Indian youth. People are not only liking the concept on which it is made but also the commitments made by the star cast in respect of dialogue delivery or action sequence and involvement of experienced crew to achieve perfection. Many are awestruck by these perfections as this movie’s teaser is a brainchild of the Punjabi Cinema, not Bollywood.
Few hours before India is ready to embrace itself into the colors of patriotism in the vicinity of Republic Day, Seven Colors Motion Pictures in association with Saga Music and Unisys Infosolutions launched this teaser of its much anticipated and nation’s first ever war biopic on India’s highest gallantry award – Param Vir Chakra recipient Subedar Joginder Singh.
The movie is slated to release in the first week of April 2018.
