Picket 43 can be safely assumed as the comeback film for Major Ravi. In the matter of military films, Major Ravi is considered to be one among the best directors.
Apart from being a military film, Picket 43 doesn’t have other similarities. It doesn’t have a lot of gun fire and war scenes. It is about the story of a friendship between an Indian soldier and a Pakistan soldier and their own effort to save the peace among both countries. The backbone of the film is definitely the performance of Prithviraj and Javed Jeffrey. They have successfully portrayed the suffering, courage, conviction and dedication of our soldiers. The people should become conscious about the futility of wars and the true heroism of our soldiers.
Picket 43 narrates the tale of an unlikely friendship between an Indian Soldier and his Pakistani counterpart in the remote outpost in the snow – clad hills on Line of Control. The focus is on the emotional turmoil of a soldier’s job. It is the story of love and compassion and throws light on the humanitarian sides of soldiers of two countries.
Major Ravi successfully brings out the mental conflicts of soldiers. Javed Jaffrey gets many positive responses and the performance of Prithviraj is also well applauded. The beauty of the location becomes more prominent through the nens of Jomon. T. John. Ranji Paniker. Along with rest of the cast have done their work well. The military dog (passed away) also does a memorable show of skills. Picket 43 can be included in the "must-see" list of films.
