New Delhi : The Public Broadcaster Doordarshan National Network is all set to launch a new show titled ‘Paltan’, depicting the challenging lives of Armed forces men in uniform. The show, launching today (5th December), will highlight the lives, dreams, aspirations, emotions and challenges of the officers in their day to day life of armed forces serving for the Nation.
The plot revolves around four young Army officers, Captain Akshay (Akki), Captain Gurpreet (Gary), Captain Subramanium (Subbu) and Lt. Vikram (Vicky), who are great friends of the same regiment. Subedar Major Baldev Singh is the one man on whose orders Jawans would lay down their lives. However, the young officers often go astray, and that’s how the life in the ‘Paltan’ goes on.
The story of ‘Paltan’ has shades of bravery, action, emotions, love, passion, tension, deceit, loyalty and, at times, humour. With this show, Doordarshan hopes to relive its golden days of the successful show ‘Fauji’ which was created in similar back ground.
The show, which is being produced by Vijay Gopal under the banner of SVG Network, will be aired on every Monday to Thursday at 10.30 PM.
