About Pippa

The film is based on the firsthand account penned in the book The Burning Chaffees by Brigadier Balram Singh Mehta. The action thriller gets its name from the amphibious war tank called the PT-76 (Palavushi Tanka), which was popularly known as 'Pippa', akin to an empty tin of ghee that smoothly floats on water.

Directed by Raja Krishna Menon, the film will release on Prime Video on November 10. This wartime saga narrates a story of patriotism and heroism, and traces the coming of age of Captain Balram Mehta (essayed by Ishaan) of the 45 Cavalry Tank Squadron. Captain Balram Singh Mehta assumed command over the squadron after their leader fell during the mission.

Raja said in a statement, “When I read Brigadier Balram Singh Mehta’s book The Burning Chaffees, I was absolutely certain that this inspiring and lesser-known story of triumph, needed to be shared with the world. I believe we have been able to create an apt tribute to our armed forces, by bringing to life this story that is hidden in the annals of our rich history.
