JP Dutta is back with the patriotic drama Paltan after LOC Kargil (2003) and Border (1997). A patriotic drama is inevitably incomplete without an emotional number. The latest offering from the movie is Raat Kitni sung by the talented Sonu Nigam. The song is composed and penned by Anu Malik and Javed Akhtar.

Raat Kitni takes us down the memory lane and bears a striking resemblance to the earlier lonesome tracks from Dutta’s films. The song is picturised on most of the lead protagonists like Arjun Rampal, Sonu Sood, Gurmeet Choudhury, Harshvardhan Rane and Luv Sinha who play army officers and are seen remembering loved memories with their families as they are miles away from them. The track also introduced us to their leading ladies, Sonal Chauhan, Esha Gupta, Monica Gill and Dipika Kakar.

Paltan marks Dutta’s return after a 12-year-long sabbatical since his last film Umrao Jaan (2006) starring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishekh Bachchan. The film depicts the battle between Nathu La and Cho La passes at the Sikkim border which had taken place in the year 1967 right after the India and China war in the year 1962. It narrates the bravery of the Indian soldiers who fought against the Chinese army.

Paltan stars Arjun Rampal, Sonu Sood, Jackie Shroff, Harshvardhan Rane, Luv Sinha, Gurmeet Choudhury and Siddhanth Kapoor in pivotal roles. It is slated to release on September 7.
