Actions continues for Akshay Kumar in ‘Kesari’, however, this time, the stunts performed are in warfare. The film is based on Battle of Saragarhi from 1897.
Kesari is an epic drama film based on the famous of Battle of Saragarhi (1897).
The entire Twitter is coloured saffron ever since trailer of Kesari got released and it’s undoubtedly the best thing you’ll see on the Internet today.
Akshay Kumar features as the leader of the ‘army of 21 soldiers’ (of the British Indian contingent) who fought against 10,000 Afghan invaders.
Kesari is not a larger than life film just a fictionalised retelling of one of the bravest battles fought on Indian soil. The stunts and warfare sequences in Kesari trailer are unlike any film, Akshay Kapoor will do it all!
Somewhat the action scenes will remind you of battle that took place between the Rajputs and Khiljis at Chittor in Padmaavat.
Although, Akshay Kumar adds crispness to patriotic dialogues in a way that only he can do. However Parineeti Chopra, the female lead in the film opposite to Akshay Kumar has only a two-scene appearance in the three-minute Kesari trailer.
All 21 Sikh soldiers who died in the Battle of Saragarhi were posthumously awarded the Indian Order of Merit, the then highest gallantry award for an Indian soldier.
Kesari is co-produced by Akshay Kumar (through Cape Of Good Hope) and Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. The film is directed by Anurag Singh, who has previously made several Punjabi films including the Jatt & Juliet series, starring Diljit Dosanjh. Kesari is slated for Holi release and it also stars Siddhant Sharma, Ashwath Bhatt, Pawan Malhotra and Rana Ranbir.
However, Kesari is not the only screen adaptation on the Battle of Saragarhi. Ajay Devgn has announced Sons Of Sardaar while Randeep Hooda will be seen in another film titled The Battle of Saragarhi.
Fans, production houses and celebrities took to Twittee to appreciate the work put in the film. #CapeOfGoodFilms and #Kesari has been trending ever since the trailer was launched. Few scenes from the movie inspired memes as well though we can say there’s nothing like bad marketing.
Social media is saffron today, the poster of the film has too gained appreciation:
