On Friday, Pippa made its Prime Video debut. In the movie, Ishaan Khatter plays real-life war hero, Captain Balram Singh Mehta, while Mrunal Thakur, Priyanshu Painyuli, and Soni Razdan also play pivotal roles. Many people reviewed the Raja Krishna Menon film on X (formerly known as Twitter). Based on Brigadier Balram Singh Mehta’s book The Burning Chaffees, the war film is highly appreciated for its performances. Some people find AR Rahman’s music to be captivating.
The action-packed 1971 Indo-Pakistan war, crucial to Bangladesh’s fight for independence, is the story of the Ishaan Khatter-starring war film Pippa.
An X user reviewing Pippa stated, “Excellent performances, strong script, emotional rollercoaster, well shot, technically fine period war film with an understated, poignant score by @arrahman. Captures the sudden, brutal hit of war and human relationships beautifully.”
Another one said, “Pippa, starring Ishaan Khatter, Mrunal and Priyanshu, follows the Mehta siblings and the Indian army’s involvement in the Bangladesh Liberation War. AR Rahman delivers a haunting score. A compelling war drama with an outstanding soundtrack.”
One user commented, “Fantastic film. Brilliant performance. Emotionally engaging and very well made. I loved the cinematography and sound design. Amazing work. Kudos to the team. There is a whole symphony track at the end credits. A great watch.”
The movie is based on the life of Captain Balram Singh Mehta, who served in the Indian 45 Cavalry Regiment during the 1971 India-Pakistan War and fought on the eastern front with his brothers. Pippa is based on actual events that took place in 1971 during the Battle of Garibpur. RSVP Movies and Roy Kapur Films are the producers of Raja Krishna Menon’s film.
