Dunkirk is a 2017 English language war-film co-produced and directed by Christopher Nolan of The Dark Knight trilogy. The film stars Fionn Whitehead, Tom Glynn-Carney, Jack Lowden, Harry Styles, Aneurin Barnard, James D’Arcy, Barry Keoghan, Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance, and Tom Hardy. Nolan wrote the script, told from three perspectives—the land, sea, and air—to contain little dialogue and create suspense solely through details.
Set during the Second World War, it concerns the Dunkirk evacuation. The Dunkirk evacuation, code-named Operation Dynamo, also known as the Miracle of Dunkirk, was the evacuation of Allied soldiers from the beaches and harbour of Dunkirk, in the north of France, between 26 May and 4 June 1940, during World War II. The operation was decided upon when large numbers of British, French, Belgian, and Canadian troops were cut off and surrounded by German troops during the Battle of France.
It has grossed over $107 million worldwide with some critics calling it one of the greatest war films ever, as well as Nolan’s best film to date.
According to Box Office India, Dunkirk, based on Operation Dynamo, an Allied-led evacuation of more than 400,000 troops from the seaside French town of Dunkirk, made Rs 3 crore on Friday, and another Rs 4 crore on Saturday.
