Paltan movie release, celebrity reactions and audience reviews LIVE updates: After a hiatus of 12 years, Filmmaker JP Dutta is all set to return to the silver screen with his film Paltan. With patriotic fervour at its very core, Paltan revolves around Indo-Sino war of 1962 and has hit the screens today, i.e September 7, 2018. Helmed by veteran director JP Dutta, Paltan stars Arjun Rampal, Jackie Shroff, Sonu Sood, Abdul Quadir Amin, Sonal Chauhan, Harshvardhan Rane, Gurmeet Choudhary, Rohit Roy, Siddhanth Kapoor, Luv Sinha and Dipika Kakar.
In an interview with a leading daily, Filmmaker JP Dutta had stated that if one is an Indian then they should watch Paltan and added that what attracted people to watch Border, will attract people to watch Paltan. However, the film has not managed to secure a solo box office release for itself as it will clash with Ekta Kapoor and Imtiaz Ali’s film Laila Majnu. With this, the film might also face a strong competition with Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor-starrer Stree, that has crossed Rs 50 crore mark within one week of the film release.
#Paltan First Half.— Abhishek Parihar (@BlogDrive) September 7, 2018
Slow, takes very long to set up, the flashback love stories we're actually not needed to be this long. Badly lacks on essential stars for a film like this like @iamsunnydeol
Not a very bad 1st half though but the fate lies in hands of the second half.
