Such has been the perception around films coming out of Bollywood that whenever the characters wear an Army uniform, it is by default considered to be a war film.

Due to this reason films like LAKSHYA and 1971 have suffered since a major section of audience, which was sick and tired of watching films revolving around India & Pakistan, refrained from stepping into the auditorium with a fear of being exposed to yet another jingoistic tale.

However, to set things straight makers of SHAURYA are going all out to let the world know that their film is not a war film. Instead, it is a film about courage where Army merely happens to be a backdrop. In fact even the film's synopsis reads as SHAURYA being " A story of justice, honour, faith and above all believing in yourself. A story of finding courage within... where friendships are tested in the battle which maters the most... the battle for truth and justice..."

SHAURYA has a court martial forming the major part of the film's narrative where an Army Officer (Deepak Dobriyal) is being charged with mutiny, treason and killing a fellow officer. How the court martial proceeds and two Army lawyers (Rahul Bose, Javed Jaffrey), who also happen to be best friends, fight the case, is what promises to make SHAURYA a gripping tale.

The film also stars Kay Kay Menon in a powerful role while Seema Biswas is another talented name in the credits. Minissha Lamba returns to the big screen after a hiatus as well along with Rozza Catalano who makes her debut. Amrita Rao too has a special appearance in SHAURYA that has music by Adnan Sami and lyrics by Javed Akhtar.

Produced by Moser Baer, SHAURYA is directed by journalist turned writer-director Samar Khan who had made his directorial debut with KUCH MEETHA HO JAAYE 3 years back. SHAURYA is looking at an early April release.
