With a great sense of pride, on this 75th Independence Day, we unveil the official teaser of #Pippa. An action-packed war drama that brings to life the valour of our soldiers who fought the historic 1971 India-Pakistan war!
Inspired by true events and the war memoir The Burning Chaffees written by Brigadier Balram Singh Mehta, Pippa tells the story of three siblings set against the backdrop of the action packed 48-hour Battle of Garibpur, which was fought on the eastern front of India during the Indo-Pakistan War of 1971.
Pippa's title refers to the magnificent Russian amphibious war tank PT-76 that was used in the war. It was lovingly nicknamed "Pippa", Punjabi for an empty 'ghee da dabba' that smoothly floats on water.
The film portrays the coming-of-age of a young Mehta as he takes charge of his armoured tank squadron, as well of Independent India as they both take centre-stage and step up to prove themselves. The historic journey paves the path for India's triumph, as Captain Mehta rises to the occasion and leads his troops, and nation, to victory.
