The Drill Instructor at IMA, Subedar Srivardan, is in fact a real-life instructor who served in the senior-most/elite infantry unit in the Indian Army: The Brigade of the Guards. See more »
During preparation for the initial attack, teams are asked to fire randomly to provoke response fire and Col. Damle with Subedar are noting positions on map. Subedar points out presence of 2 heavy guns, but no such information is actually conveyed by the teams engaging enemy. There is only one mention of heavy guns in the entire scene, so it would not have been possible for Subedar to know of presence of more than 1 gun. See more »

Hello Gaznabi, why has the firing stopped? Gaznabi come in. Why has the firing stopped?
Capt. Jalal Akbar:
The firing has stopped because Gaznabi has reached his destiny. Leave our area soon or else swear on khuda we won't leave you.
Oh, swear on khuda. So are you a muslim?
Capt. Jalal Akbar:
Only an Indian for you.

One of the best Hindi films i have ever seen. I have never heard background music like that in any other Hindi film, at least in the last decade. The special effects in the rock climbing scene were done very well. Farhan has proved to be a good film maker by making two completely different sorts of films and made them both beautifully. The shots were like paintings and everything looked authentic and real, like the uniforms and the helicopters and the camps fitted perfectly with the surroundings and the imagination of it all as a whole is just amazing. Farhan to me is a very promising film maker. Hritiks acting was outstanding, except for a little over acting in the beginning. Overall i must say that i know i can expect great things from farhan and from Hritik. Good luck! and Congratulations!
