Approached by the Indian Army to create a film highlighting the Gorkha’s incredible, world-renowned history in time for their Bicentenary celebration, The Formidables uses never-before-seen archives of Gorkhas in action, interviews veterans of the Sino-Indian War of 1962 and Indo-Pak War of 1971, and shows exclusive footage from the Army’s official celebration, where the Indian Chief of Army attended, all of which ultimately expresses the true value of the 9th Gorkha Rifles: not just in Indian army history, but also as a world legacy. “If a man says he is not afraid of dying, he is either lying or he is a Gorkha” —Sam Manekshaw.
