Kesari is an Action packed & Heart touching movie.
21 March 2019 | by kaushalmodi1985See all my reviews

Kesari was one of the most awaiting movie of these year which is based on the Battle of Saragarhi was fought on 12 September 1897 between Sikh soldiers of the British Indian Army and Pashtun Orakzai tribesmen (legions of Afghans). It occurred in the North-West Frontier Province, (modern-day Khyber Paktunkhwa, Pakistan). The Sikhs, led by Halvindar Ishar Singh, chose to fight to the death, which is considered as one of history's bravest battle ever fought.

No doubt Akshay Kumar has given many of the best performances in his Career, but these one is Outstanding, one of the best. Akki in portray of Halvindar Ishar Singh nailed it. Parineeti Chopra is good in Special performances. Rakesh Chaturvedi Om is superb in negative performance, you will really hate him in role of Saidullah.

Director Anurag Singh has done very good job. Action Pack Scenes are heart of the movie. Action Director Parvez Shaikh & Lawrence Woodward have done execellent work. Cinematography is fantastic by Anshul Chobey. Climax is really awesome, will left you in emotions and make you proud to be an Indian too.

Overall, Kesari is an Action packed & Heart touching movie. Its a treat for Holi & these weekend. Don't miss these one at any cost. Go for it.
