The intention of the book and the movie was to give a raw and realistic account of the lives of the 53 soldiers and all that they had to face during the war. The accounts of the soldiers covered was to give closure to the families of the martyred soldiers. The air of patriotism and the gooseflesh that this movie arose was an experience altogether.
