Real Patriotism and Heroism.
29 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Shaheed is a very realistic depiction of our India in the pre-Independence era, as our heroes fought valiantly and stuck strong to their cause of freedom. The Deols, being real Punjabis, fit their characters of Bhagat Singh (Bobby Deol) and Chandrashekhar Azad (Sunny Deol) perfectly. Personally, Sunny should have won Best Supporting Actor for this film, which was sadly ignored by the biased media (the media is ignorant and stupid). This is movie is dramatic, and yet, so invigorating. A movie like this really boils your blood so hard that you just want to go out there and take action with big guns and go after those zamindaars. Stand up for the country's honor and dignity. Action and performances are excellent. If our own Indians today knew about our past and its greatness, it would be in better situations today! You will like this movie a lot!! Cheers!
