Bollywood has always acknowledged the sacrifices of the armed forces who are guarding India's borders and entertained the audiences from time to time by making films on the subject of war. Filmmakers never shied away from evoking nationalism by celebrating the heroic deeds of our soldiers on silver screen.
The filmmakers through their films tried to depict the tension and the trauma faced by the soldiers and their families. Movies like Border, LOC Kargil, Himmat are few to name. India has witnessed many wars in the past but what is going through the mind of the jawan's who are on the front is never known. From Amitabh Bachchan to Akshay Kumar, every actor gave his best while portraying the role of a soldier in the reel life.
With the widening of the canvas, filmmaker's have also shifted their focus from the victory saga's to other sensitive issues. Present day movies encourage the young generation to become the part of the armed forces. Actors like Hrithik Roshan and Bobby Deol have essayed the roles of directionless youths who went on becoming a dedicated officer.
