It is the month of January that films immersed in patriotism are seen a lot. This has always been the case, be it Independence Day or Republic Day in January, filmmakers do not want to miss the chance to make patriotic films by making them full of patriotism. With this intention, films like 'Uri', 'Accidental Prime Minister', 'Thackeray' and 'Manikarnika' are being released on Republic Day, which are colored in the color of patriotism or politics.
Among these films, writer-director Batuknath Tripathi has brought out 'Battalion 609', which seems to be a film with patriotic theme, but shortly after the story starts, it is known that it will have between India and Pakistan. An attempt has been made to arouse the love of the country by linking the enmity with the cricket match. This attempt has proved crude. So many films like 'Filmistan', 'War Chhok Na Yaar' have been made on the India-Pakistan border and this seems to be the film of the same episode.
The story of the film begins from the Indo-Pakistan border, where the soldiers of both the countries are carrying out their duty of border defense with impunity. Captain Kamaraj Mishra (Shoaib Ibrahim) of India's battalion 609 is very passionate and passionate about love for the country.
Kamraj's battalion has his friends like Iqbal Qureshi (Vishwas Keeni), Balbir Singh (Jashn Singh Kohli), while on the other hand Captain Anwar Alam (Vicky Ahuja) of the Pakistani Army also has his brave men. After the India-Pakistan cricket match is banned, there is a clash between the soldiers of the two countries and the captains of the two army decide to play cricket matches among themselves. It is decided that the match that will be lost will have to be given 18 kilometers from the land of its country. Kamaraj takes this decision in the absence of his seniors and then faces many challenges along with the Taliban.
Director Brijesh Batuknath Tripathi, apart from bashing Pakistan to awaken the patriotism, has also absorbed the game of cricket between the two countries, but due to the weak story and loose screenplay, the film does not come to a standstill.
It seems unrealistic for the Prime Ministers of both countries to wager 18 kilometers of land on the board of a cricket match. In the second half, the excess of cricket is boring. The film reminds me of 'Lagaan'.
Talking about the actress, TV actor Shoaib Ibrahim is going to make his debut with this film. He has done justice to his role. Vishwas Keeni, Jashn Singh Kohli and Jassi are well entertained by their teammates in the film. Vicky Ahuja is playing the role of Pakistani Captain. Talking about the actresses, Alina Kazan looks beautiful, but she and Farnaz Shetty have not got much opportunity on screen. Film songs like 'Do Paig PK', 'Khoya Rahun Tujhmen' are fine.
