Lakshya (Hindi:लक्ष्य; English Translation: Target) is a 2004 Bollywood film directed by Farhan Akhtar. Hrithik Roshan stars as Karan Shergill, an unambitious young man who joins the Indian Military Academy and matures through his experiences as a cadet and later as an officer fighting in the 1999 Kargil Conflict.
The following guns were used in the film Lakshya:
Sterling Submachine Gun (Indian 1A1 Submachine Gun)
The 1A1 Submachine Gun, an Indian clone of the Sterling SMG, is used by Punjab Regiment officers and radio operators, including Lt. Karan Shergill (Hrithik Roshan) and Capt. Jalal Akbar (Sushant Singh).
INSAS assault rifles are used by the officer cadets and by most of the soldiers of the Punjab Regiment.
Romanian PM. md. 90 rifles are used by Lt. Shergill and his company when they scale a mountain to attack a Pakistani stronghold in the film's climax. The Pakistani irregulars are also largely armed with PM.md.90s as well. The rifles are genuine Indian Army weapons, distinguishable by the lack of a foregrip handguard as seen in other versions of the PM md.90.
Fake Bollywood AK
In certain scenes, replica AK-47s are seen in the hands of Indian Army soldiers.
7.62mm 1B Machine Gun (Bren L4A4)
Indian soldiers use the 7.62mm 1B Machine Gun as their main support weapon. Pakistani irregulars also are seen using the 1B at their mountain outpost.
7.62mm 2A1 Machine Gun (FN MAG)
The Pakistanis fire 7.62mm 2A1 Machine Guns from bunkers while repelling Indian assaults on their positions. The 2A1 is distinctive from other variants of the FN MAG since it lacks a buttstock and is usually tripod-mounted.
Carl Gustav Recoilless Rifle

During the final assault, Lt. Shergill and his men battle a group of Pakistanis who are manning 81mm mortars.
Bofors FH77 155mm howitzers are used by the Indian forces to provide fire support.
