Battalion 609 is one such patriotic movies which are released in January when we have Republic Day or in August when we celebrate Independence Day. Battalion 609 is one of the first films which is released prior to Republic day to evoke patriotism and love our country. The lead cast, headed by TV star Shoaib Ibrahim, and the movie is helmed and written by Brijesh Batuknath Tripathi and produced by Naraindas Lalwani of N.J Lalwani Films.

The film is based on the India-Pakistan relations war, soldiers guarding our nation at the border but there is an interesting angle which makes it different from the kind of films one has seen in this genre. That element is Cricket. A portion of Indian land is wrongfully occupied by the Pakistani Army, in order to win the land back the Indian Army challenges them for a match of cricket. The winning team gets to take home the land whilst maintaining its nation’s pride.

The storyline is unconvincing and laughable on several occasion. The movie is very long with 2 hours 21 minutes to rant on a particular country. In the end, Battalion 609 is not the kind of story that successfully shows the true heroism of our Indian soldiers as it constantly rants on the neighboring nation and throws false accusations which are not proved.
