Based on the Nathu La military clashes of 1967 which took place along the Sikkim border, Paltan showcases an untold story of the Indian forces facing off in an intense battle to ward off a Chinese infiltration. Paltan, a war drama, focuses on the hard-hitting truth of India’s relations with China, and how it is important to acknowledge that China, an enormous power in world politics, poses to be a huge threat to India.
