Zee Classic Is Premiering ‘Haqeeqat (1964)’ – A Sino-Indian War Movie This Independence Day Which You Can’t Afford To Miss

For the first time in the history of Indian Television, Zee Classic will show the much-acclaimed Sino-Indian War Film on Independence Day, 2017 at 9 AM. Directed by Chetan Anand, the film stars Balraj Sahni, Dharmendra, Sanjay Khan and Vijay Anand. Considered to be the mother of all war movies, ‘Haqeeqat’ was made immediately after the war, which bolstered country’s confidence and was much appreciated by the audience as well as critics. More than a cinematic wonder, this film is a historical testament. This film showcases the survival instincts of Indian soldiers in harsh weather conditions and treacherous enemies.

Overwhelmed by the Chinese troops, the small Indian platoon shows a high degree of courage and mental permanence in the hostile terrain of Ladakh. Embracing martyrdom for maintaining the International moral standards of not attacking first is the soul of the plot. Choosing death instead of retreating in order to save other comrades and keep the Chinese army at bay is what our soldiers did. A riveting saga of heroism and patriotism is well showcased in this movie. All the characters in the movie got under their skin to prove their brilliance in the silver screen. ‘Haqeeqat’ has an ensemble cast of mega superstars and everybody played their part with sheer brilliance. From Jayant to Balraj Sahni, from Dharmendra to Priya Rajvansh, every character in the movie had an important role to play.

From cinematography to makeup, from art direction to music, every element in this movie exudes brilliance of Indian cinema. The climax song sung by Mohd. Rafi became the unofficial national anthem of the country overnight. “Kar Chale Hum Fida Jan-e-tan Sathiyon” still gives us goose bumps.

This Independence Day, we have the chance to watch this cinematic marvel at Zee Classic on 15th August 2017 9 AM and we can’t afford to miss it. Known for its riveting plot, epic performances, remarkable cinematography, incredible art direction and terrific music, ‘Haqeeqat’ will surely make our Independence Day special and memorable.
