After a series of deadly army stories, Major Ravi is back with yet another army movie - Picket 43. The movie which stars Prithviraj in the lead role, may not provide the content, which the audience expect from a typical Major Ravi movie; but is totally a different attempt.
Picket 43, the movie which revolves around Havildar Hareendran Nair, Sniffer dog Bacardi and Pakistani soldier Musharraf (Javed Jaffrey), deals with the internal conflicts of a Hari and his bonding with his sniffer dog Bacardi and the Pakistani soldier Musharraf, who lives in the opposite picket.
Hari's only companion in the picket is Bacardi, his sniffer dog. Hakka, the dog who played sniffer dog Bacardi in the movie, doubtlessly deserves a special mention. Hakka passed away immediately after the filming of the movie.
After Hari meets Musharraf, the soldier who lives in the opposite post, both of them doesn't shies away from beginning a new friendship. Hari shares his worries about his lonely mother and fiance; while Musharraf shares his disappointments about the norms of his village, which doesn't allow the girls to pursue education.
The scenes in which Hari invites Musharraf to visit India and offers to help him to educate his daughter, are extremely touching. The major strength of the movie is its climax, which reminds that every soldier will have an unconditional love for his mother land. Picket 43 is doubtlessly the best movie of Major Ravi's career and one of the best characters of Prithviraj.
