Truly Kesari
Kesari (2019) Action, Drama, History

Kesari (2019) is based on the true story of Battle of Saragarhi in which an army of 21 Sikhs fought against 10,000 Afghans in 1897.

Hardly has it ever happened that I watched an Akshay Kumar movie and didn’t like it but this was exceptionally brilliant! No Indian can ever deny feeling emotional and patriotic about how 21 sikhs fought with 10000 patans and sacrificed their lives in this movie – especially during the last 20 minutes.

I wouldn’t be wrong to say it was one of Akshay Kumar’s best performances till date; he lived the character throughout the movie in a very natural manner. Parineeti chopra had very minor role but she too did her best. I was so engrossed in the movie that while watching it I felt every bit of pain, every bit of pride and every bit of human emotions that the Sikh regiment underwent. I pray for them. I praise them. And so does most other viewers. Such was the effect of ‘Kesari’ and of course its powerful songs!
