Namak is a 1996 Indian Hindi-language action thriller film directed by Kawal Sharma and starring Sanjay Dutt, Farha Naaz, and Sidhant Salaria. The movie is set in the backdrop of Indian army camps in the disputed territory of Kashmir. The plot of the movie revolves around a group of terrorists who sneak into the army camp in order to steal arms and ammunition. They are confronted by the soldiers led by Captain Ajit Verma, played by Sanjay Dutt. In the ensuing gunfight, one of the terrorists is killed, and the others are captured.

The captured terrorists are taken to the army base for interrogation. The leader of the group, Faisal (played by Danny Denzongpa), threatens to kill one of the officers every hour unless the government releases his comrades from jail. The army officers reach out to their superiors, who decide to send in an expert in dealing with terrorists, Major Samir Khanna (played by Raza Murad).

As Major Khanna arrives, the situation at the army base becomes more tense. He starts interrogating the terrorists, and through his expertise, he manages to extract valuable information from them. However, Faisal is determined to carry out his threat, and the body count on both sides starts to rise.

During the course of the interrogation, Major Khanna comes across a young Kashmiri girl, Zainab (played by Farha Naaz), who was captured along with the terrorists. Major Khanna starts to develop feelings for Zainab, and the two of them start to bond over their love for music.

As the situation at the army base spirals out of control, Captain Verma and Major Khanna come up with a plan to rescue the remaining hostages and capture Faisal. Their plan is risky and dangerous, and the stakes are high. But they are determined to succeed, no matter the cost.

The movie is a tense and action-packed thriller, with some stunning action sequences and brilliant performances from the cast. Sanjay Dutt shines as the brave and determined soldier leading the charge against the terrorists. Raza Murad is equally impressive as the expert negotiator who manages to get inside the heads of the terrorists.

Farha Naaz's portrayal of Zainab is a highlight of the movie. Though her character is in a difficult situation, she manages to maintain her dignity and grace throughout. Her chemistry with Raza Murad is palpable, and their scenes together provide a nice contrast to the high-octane action sequences.

The movie's depiction of the conflict in Kashmir is nuanced and balanced. It does not take sides or portray any particular group as villains. Instead, it shows the human cost of the conflict, the toll it takes on the soldiers and civilians alike. It highlights the need for dialogue and diplomacy, instead of violence and aggression.

Overall, Namak is a well-made and engaging action thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat. It is a reminder of the sacrifices made by our soldiers in order to keep our country safe, and the toll that conflict takes on all those involved.

Namak is a 1996 family movie with a runtime of 2 hours and 28 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.1.
