An aimless, jobless, irresponsible grown man joins the army and matures into a battlefield hero.
This film portrays a fictionalized account of the actions of 3 Punjab. As the film shows, 3 Punjab was based in Kargil and was among the first of the units to detect the Pakistani intrusion across the Line of Control; however, they did not actually capture "Peak 5179" or any other peak. Much of the on-screen unit's actions are inspired by the actions of various other battalions during the conflict. As the film credits the story as fiction based on fact and is largely truthful to the overall situation, the Army officially endorsed and approved the film.
