Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Saathiyo is a 2004 Bollywood film directed by Anil Sharma, starring legendary actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, and Bobby Deol in prominent roles. The film follows the life of Major General Amarjeet Singh (Amitabh Bachchan) and how his three sons fall into different roles relating to their country, India.

The first part of the movie takes place during the 1965 India-Pakistan war, where the Indian army puts Amarjeet Singh in charge of strategizing the war. He not only takes control of the battle, but also has to maintain emotional distances from his family in order to stay focused. The second part of the story begins in 1971, during the Indo-Pak war. Amarjeet Singh’s three sons are now grown up, with each following a different career path. Kunal (Bobby Deol) is an Army Captain, Vikramjeet (Akshay Kumar) is a Squadron Leader of the Indian Air Force, while Rajeev (Divya Khosla) is a successful businessman in America.

The story focuses on the struggles that each of the three brothers face throughout their lives, but it is primarily focused on the father-son bond among Amarjeet and his three children. Kunal’s character is depicted as a brave and patriotic army officer who is always ready to fight for his country. He gets captured in Pakistan by the enemy during the war, and his father, Amarjeet must plan a daring mission to rescue his son. Vikramjeet, on the other hand, is shown as a daring pilot who can complete any mission assigned to him, even if it means putting his own life in danger. Rajeev, who lives abroad, is initially portrayed as a distant son, but as the story progresses, he realizes the importance of his roots and recognizes the sacrifices his father has made for the country.

The movie is a tribute to the Indian Army, and it highlights many significant moments in Indian military history, including the Indo-Pak war of 1965 and the Indo-Pak war of 1971. It showcases the hardships faced by the Indian soldiers and their families during times of war. The film delves into themes such as patriotism, courage, sacrifice, and family values. It also explores the struggles that military families endure, particularly the wives and children who are left behind when their husbands are called for duty.

The film's music was composed by Anu Malik, who produced several hit songs such as "Mere Sar Pe Dupatta Mere Pyar Ka" and "Humein Tumse Hua Hai Pyar.” The movie's title track, "Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Sathiyo," became particularly popular during the release and still remains a popular patriotic song in India.

The performances of the lead actors are exceptional, particularly Amitabh Bachchan, who gave a powerful performance as a strict father and army man. Akshay Kumar and Bobby Deol also deliver great performances and complement each other well in their respective roles.

Overall, Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Saathiyo is a must-watch for patriotic individuals and those interested in Indian military history. The film successfully portrays the sacrifices made by Indian soldiers during times of war and their families at home. The story is relatable to audiences of all ages as it reflects upon the values of loyalty, patriotism, and family ties.
