Pippa review: Ishaan Khatter-starrer will make us proud and respectful of the country’s heroic soldiers; see netizens’ reactions – N.F Times

New Delhi: On Wednesday night in Mumbai, the screening of Pippa, starring actor Ishaan Khatter, was held. As of today, November 10, 2023, the film can be streamed on Amazon Prime Video.

Pippa, starring Ishaan Khatter and Mrunal Thakur, was directed by Raja Krishna Menon and wonderfully depicts how India’s meddling in Pakistan’s internal affairs led to the creation of Bangladesh.


Pippa takes place at the time of the Indo-Pakistani War in the 1970s. When the Pakistani army slaughtered hundreds of civilians, left them without shelter, and forced them to flee to India in enormous numbers. The Bangladesh Awami League, led by Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, won the elections, while Pakistani President General Yahya Khan claimed otherwise. When Rahman questioned the refusal, he was taken into custody.

Almost instantly, everyone in East Pakistan became rebels fighting for their nation’s independence. Many people fled to India from East Pakistan because of the dangerous conditions there. India was compelled to act. Balram Mehta, or Balli, played by Ishaan Khatter, enters the scene at this point. He is a heroic army who is shunned by his own family because he opposes autocracy. In the conflict of 1971, he served with the 45th Cavalry Regiment.

Sister Radha (Mrunal Thakur) and brother Ram Mehta (Priyanshu Painyuli) are other heroes who contributed greatly to the war. The story’s central theme is how the three siblings are intrinsically linked to the conflict they see.


Pippa, co-produced by Ronnie Screwvala’s RSVP movies and Siddarth Roy Kapur’s Roy Kapur Films, is set in the tense period when East Pakistan was at war with West Pakistan. Additionally, the film provides insight into a significant training session between India and Russia. Director Raja Krishna Menon treats the subject matter carefully and refrains from going overboard.

Pippa is intriguing because the filmmakers skilfully combine the tale of three siblings with that of a great struggle between India and Pakistan. However, the film’s focus on familial feelings doesn’t detract from its status as a war drama.

The tale in Pippa is what makes it successful. All the starring actors provide outstanding performances. Excellent work as Balram Singh Mehta by Ishaan Khatter. It’s safe to say that Ishaan’s performance in Pippa is among his finest moments as an actor. As Ram Mehta, Priyanshu Painyuli shines as he remains consistent with his persona and shows out as a perfectionist. Mrunal Thakur is just as amazing an actor as Radha. Pippa is multifaceted, and her job may include some unexpected twists. As a mother of three, Soni Razdan holds her well.

The film’s pace may be sluggish initially as it establishes its fundamental storey. The use of overt visual effects is one of ‘Pippa’s minor flaws. Time restrictions may be to blame, but the history of the conflict and the training may have benefited from a bit more attention. The film seems to be overdramatizing several of its events and situations.

Pippa, on the other hand, is undeniably one of the finest combat pictures of recent years.
