In short, Kesari is a movie based on the true incident of the battle of Sarahgarhi, where 21 Sikh soldiers refused to run away and bravely fought against 10,000 Afghans. In 18th century when Britishers invaded India, they wanted to take over Afghan and they even attacked them too, that was the main reason behind the Afghan attack. Saragarhi was in the middle of fort Gulistan and fort Lockhart and it was build to pass information from one fort to another, thats why there were only 21 soldiers and Afghans decided to attack Sarahgarhi. But the way Sikh soldiers fought was just astonishing and made us feel proud to be Indian.
The Movie was very inspiring and Akshay Kumar Nailed the role of proud warrior ‘Ishar Singh’. But I personally felt that there was a bit extra of unnecessary comedy in the movie that was not required and the storyline could have been displayed in a better manner. For now, it looks like the Afghans attacked because Indians didn’t let them kill the girl.
Overall the movie was fantastic. Amazing work done by everyone and one should definately go and watch the movie.
Rating : 3.5/5
