Official Trailer and Plot of Pippa
The film tells the exciting account of a historic event that happened in 1971 during the Indo-Pakistan war—the Battle of Garibpur, which was crucial to Bangladesh’s fight for independence. This wartime tale of bravery and devotion follows the coming of age of 45 Cavalry Tank Squadron Captain Balram Mehta (played by Ishaan).
The teaser transports us to the eastern front of the Indian army during the Battle of Garibpur. When their leader was killed in the operation, Captain Balram Singh Mehta took over as leader of the squadron.
He participated in the war’s front lines alongside his siblings and was crucial to India’s effort to win. Bangladesh was freed because Indian forces gave it their all, with the battle cry “We fight like soldiers, kill like soldiers, and die like soldiers” serving as a rallying cry.
