This compelling story, directed by Sankalp Reddy, has a certain sensitivity to the subject of the film. The creators are happy to bring a story that is a celebration of unsung heroes who want no credit for their contribution to the country.

We look forward to giving the audience a glimpse of the story and lots of excitement! ”

Director Sankalp Reddy says, “IB 71 is about what goes on before a triumph, and a completely different kind of heroism is at play in its history. These are the themes I associated with when the story was told to me. I am very happy that the producers have shown enormous faith in my vision. This movie is really special to me. ”
