Ya toh Tiranga lehrake aaunga, ya toh Tirange mein lipat ke aaunga. Lekin aaunga zaroor! A tense, emotional tribute to the real-life hero of Param Vir Chakra awardee and Indian Army captain Vikram Batra.
Plot:- This is a story of a PVC awardee brave Indian soldier – Capt. Vikram Batra, who shot to fame and became a household name during the Kargil War in 1999. His indomitable spirit and his unflinching courage in chasing the Pakistani soldiers out of Indian territory contributed immensely in India finally winning the Kargil War in 1999.
Performance:- Coming to performances, Sidharth Malhotra has delivered his career’s best performance in Shershaah. He is outstanding! He is clearly the soul of the film. Kiara Advani has a limited role, but she manages to do a fine job. Shiv Pandit, Nikitin Dheer, Himmanshoo A. Malhotra, Anil Charanjeett performances well. All the supporting casts have done commendable job.
Direction & Music:- Vishu’s direction is superb, especially considering that it is his first Hindi film. The music is average, but I loved the background score, hats off to John Stewart Eduri.
Final Words:- On the whole, Shershaah is a powerful experience. It has power-packed direction and power-packed sequences that remain etched in your memory even after the show has concluded. At the end, one line for Sidharth Malhotra’s performance “Yeh Dil maange more”.
