Superb personalization of war
19 February 1999 | by ssimhaSee all my reviews

Rarely has an Indian movie depicted the personal traumas that confront soldiers and their families. Border scores 10/10. The last song Mere Dushman Mere Bhai was touching.

Shows that all the bitter fighting between India and Pakistan is such a gross waste. It is a case of brother vs brother, and will have no winners in the end.
