Soon after his training, he was sent along with his team to defend the Chinese army. Even though the Indian soldiers lost all their weapons in the Sino- Indian war, they fought against the Chinese bravely. The final soul that fought in the war was Jaswant Singh Rawat. He fought against the Chinese Army for 72 hours as a one-man army. Still, it is believed that he safeguards the place. He was honored with Mahavir Chakra.
Avinash Dhyani played well as Jaswant Singh Rawat
The real life story brings Goosebumps! The effort by a dedicated and patriotic soldier is scripted well. But, the screenplay has a lot of loopholes. Although Avinash played well, he failed to establish the fearlessness of Jaswant Singh. A lot of cuts in the film irritate the viewers. The romantic portion was also not shown well.
What’s Not There?
The film shows the tough times faced by the soldiers in the border. With the extreme weather condition, how they safeguard the border from the enemies is shown well. However, the film has some flaws too. 72 Hours: Martyr Who Never Died – watchable once
