Also starring Amrita Puri, and Sushant Singh in pivotal roles. Directed by Vishal Mangalorkar and produced by Boney Kapoor, Arunava Joy Sengupta and Akash Chawla.

JEET KI ZID review

He converts no into yes, gets rejected at the special commando training but comes back and challenges his commanding officer. A fatal injury after a deadly operation lands him in hospital, he is clinically declared dead but he starts breathing again. Paralysed by the lower half of the body, he clears CAT in a wheelchair and gets admission in IIM and becomes a marketing guru. And that’s not all he again stands on his feet and joins the drill of the army. And this is not a fiction story, it’s a real-life story of a living legend, a born warrior, second name to grit and determination – Major Deependra Singh Sengar. JEET KI ZID is the story of this incredible real-life hero who hates the word ‘no’.

Writer Siddharth Mishra and director Vishal Mangalorkar shape this series into 7 episodes of sheer valour and determination showing us a ‘real’ hero, a soldier, a warrior, a patriot who is unforgettable. The incredibly inspiring real-life story of Major Deependra Singh Sengar gets transferred this time on the silver screen. Beginning from a lovable admirer of his athletic elder brother who becomes a victim to terrorism. The loss of his brother turns Deep into an iron-willed person who accepts every challenge thrown at him bravely. The writer director might have taken some liberties for dramatization but never the filament of the theme is disturbed throughout. The appearance of the real hero Major Deependra Singh at the end of episodes elevates this story telling and fills the audience with real pride and admiration for the man.


There is a list of movies/stories on Indian Army’s glory that make you feel proud but JEET KI ZID by Vishal Mangalorkar is something unique that travels beyond patriotism and heroism. It’s inspiringly human and highlights flaws. The hidden message that nothing is perfect, the belief in yourself adage which it carries proudly and the vulnerability of human nature is used nicely to make the protagonist believably human who achieves extraordinary feats making them look like a miracle. Because he never gives up.

Amit Sadh goes all out in playing the Kargil hero Major Deependra Singh Sengar on screen. The actor gives a strong, moving and mature performance which will become a highlight in his OTT career.

Amrita Puri is amazingly natural as the loving wife and life partner who cares and understands. Sushant Singh is just terrific as the commanding officer in the training camp.


The action/war scenes are shot with a dash of reality and they raise your pulse high. Cinematography by Akhilesh Shrivastava deserves special mention.

Final words

Our soldiers are real heroes, and our Indian Army is the best and we are extremely proud of it. There are many stories of our brave hearts who can give these fictional Super Man’s and Rambo’s teddy bear tears. JEET KI ZID based on Kargil hero Major Deependra Singh Sengar starring Amit Sadh makes this clearer. Believing in yourself is the answer to every challenge, nothing is impossible, so never give up. Don’t give up – watch JEET KI ZID – there is a hero in you.
