My First Bollywood Film.
Callipygian_Linguist24 March 2019
I'd never seen a Bollywood film until now but having read about the Battle of Saragarhi I thought it would be interesting to watch. I will admit there is definitely some heavy melodrama in a few action scenes, I don't know if this is common in Indian films or not but it does disrupt the flow of the film somewhat (or at least give you the impression that beards and turbans give you superpowers). That being said most of the action sequences are well done and the tone while serious is punctuated by some hilarious jokes and dialogue that reflect the camaraderie amongst soldiers in such situations and make relating to and investing in a rather large cast of characters considerably easier. I don't know how Indian audiences would rate this film against other Bollywood films but I found this far more entertaining than recent Hollywood blockbusters.

KESARI ON A LEAGUE OF IT'S OWN..
servant_of_god21 March 2019
Akshay's best movie. The CGI is impeccable. If you are not aware of Sikh martial art than you would not understand the fight sequences. If you visit a Sikh Akhada where they practice martial art you would exactly see what Akshay has done. He has brought out the true Sikh Martial Art essence. The slow motion is not over the top because it is exactly how they fight. The film flows beautifully. The graphics and the sound design is absolutely spot on. Direction has been at its finest. Every Indian must watch this film.

Must watch👌👌
vkanni_srikanth21 March 2019
From the beginning of the movie till ending visually it's awesome that too in such budget, story is all about history which has to know every Indian how 21 sikhs fought woth 10000 patans and sacrifices their lifes movie is emotionally connected particularly last 20 mints of climax, bgm work is good, director has succeeded with his script, dialogues he delivered good out put in limited budget all though we can find few minor flaws but that will be not a problem for general audience, editing should have been bit tighter,Over all technical values are good enough.

Akshay Kumar's best performance till date, he lived in the character throughout the movie so natural kudos to him for choosing such kind of subjects he is becoming versatile actor, parineeti chopra has very minor role but promising one she has done her best in limited time, all other 21 sikhs and every other character had done very good job.

Final verdict-go and watch this emotional action drama saga am sure you won't regret.

Kesari is an Action packed & Heart touching movie.
kaushalmodi198521 March 2019
Warning: Spoilers
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.

Blatant and ridiculously exaggerated display of heroism.
ke_neth19812 August 2019
There is subtle exaggeration to stress on a certain point, and there is blatant exaggeration to the point of absurdity. This movie like all bollywood films does the latter. For some reason Bollywood has to demean all other community in order to advance their own depictions of valor and courage without exception. For example, all Britishers shown on film has to be inherently sadists, arrogant and abusive and derive personal pleasure from abusing Indians. Reality, not all Brits were cruel and some even thought highly of Indians and were friends. Many britishers were born in India and even remember their birthplace with pride.

In bollywood, the enemy is always backstabbing cowards and there are no exception. Whereas the Indians are always ready to sacrifice. In this movie probably the better course would have been to keep the Afghans as nameless and faceless tribals, more as a horde.

Too many unnecessary details added that do nothing to move the plot forward. Understanding this film was completed with budget constraints, I choose not to delve into goofs and factual, technical and historical flaws. But I must say, the makeup, most of all was the least convincing. Being a war, one would expect a lot more gore and blood than a PG rated movie.

Last;y I guess we would have to wait till Hollywood decides to pick up this story and makes a film on it.

I am now Akshay Kumar fan after watching this movie
doctorpratik21 March 2019
Warning: Spoilers
The main character hallucinates of loved ones as he rarely gets to see them. The movie emotionally connects to the audience. It is based on true events. The music contains hymns related to Sikhism. Action is superb. Villains have acted well.
