    Kurukshetra to feature three wars

    By Staff
    Hollywood is actually crazy about war movies! Many wars, such as Vietnam, have produced hugely popular films such as The Deer Hunter, Apocalypse Now, Coming Home, Platoon, Born On The Fourth Of July, all of them Oscar winners. Hollywood filmmakers use modern technology to produce war sequences making audiences feel they are actually surrounded by machine guns, tanks, airplanes, submarines and chemical weapons. Here in India, no one has yet dared to make a war movie like in Hollywood.

    But reports say that Malayalam director Major Ravi's Kurukshetra, starring Mohanlal in the lead, will feature three war sequences, constituting one-third of the movie! Wow!

    The movie, based on the real story of the Kargil war between India and Pakistan that took place between May and July 1999 in Kashmir, will also feature real war practice sessions of the Indian Army. This is for the first time a Malayalam movie is getting permission to shoot the actual practice sessions of the Indian Army. The movie will be completed in a single schedule of 35 days in the original locales.

    Mohanlal will appear as Colonel Mahadevan, who is all determined to get back the land grabbed by Pakistani soldiers in the Kargil valley. Kannada star Taniya Singh is the heroine. Kurukshetra, produced by Damor Films with a budget of seven crores, is Major Ravi's third venture after the immensely successful Keerthi Chakra and critically acclaimed Mission 90 Days.
