The film captures the barren, sun-scorched ravines of Chambal in a way that makes the khaki clad outlaws almost blend in with the landscape, so much so that at times one can’t tell the man from the earth beneath. During the filming of this movie, the existing dacoits in the Chambal region were friendly with the filming unit. They all respected Paan Singh Tomar a lot. The Chambal region is contradictory and strange. There are dacoits, but then a large number of people from that region join the Indian army. On one hand, there are outlaws and on the other hand there are people who want to serve the nation. And Paan Singh Tomar was both. On top of that, he was an athlete. So he earned a lot of respect among the dacoits. Most of the movie was shot in Dholpur in the Chambal valley of Madhya Pradesh. Paan Singh Tomar was originally from Bhind in Gwalior district. IN this scene, Paan Singh is giving army training to his gang of dacoits.
