National broadcaster Doordarshan is set to add a new show in its line-up. Starting January 5, the channel will air 'Paltan', a show that will depict the challenging life of army men. It will highlight the lives, dreams, aspirations, emotions and challenges of the officers in the armed forces.
The plot revolves around four young officers - Captain Akshay (Akki), Captain Gurpreet (Gary), Captain Subramanium (Subbu) and Lt. Vikram (Vicky) - who are great friends in the same regiment. Subedar Major Baldev Singh is a man on whose orders, the jawans would lay down their lives without a second thought. However, 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 'Fauji'. The show, produced by Vijay Gopal under the banner of SVG Networks will air Monday to Thursday at 10.30 pm.
