Akshay Kumar Is Set to Deliver a Holi Blockbuster With His Battle of Saragarhi Let’s Celebrate the Spirit of Courage and Bravery From Today
Kesari is a rousing war drama that Akshay Kumar’s fans have been waiting for since the announcement of the film. But it is a lot more than just that and definitely deserves a watch this Holi.
Despite being one of the fiercest last stands ever, the Battle of Saragarhi is lost somewhere in the annals of history. In Kesari, megastar Akshay Kumar brings alive on celluloid the incredible story of 21 Sikh soldiers fighting valiantly against 10,000 invaders.
Kesari takes the audience where history textbooks did not, into the lives of the martyrs. If one soldier is away from his six-month-old daughter, another has been grappling with caste discrimination all his life. It is these little emotional nuances – a letter from the family, a pair of shoes carefully preserved – which strike a chord with the audiences. The film also touches upon the never give up attitude of the Sikhs under any circumstance and portrays the human spirit of courage and togetherness.
At the same time, Kesari has its light moments, which provide a welcome relief from the intense battlefield sequences, which form its core. 10,000 Afghan troops are marching towards Saragarhi, with several of them beating the war drum. However, it takes only one man playing the Dhol to send them into an awed silence.
Kesari is a must watch celebrating the spirit of courage and bravery. Book your tickets now to watch the greatest battle ever fought come to life on screen.
