Akshay Kumar's Kesari has been one of the most awaited flicks of this year, and looks like the wait was worth it. Some critics and industry folks have already watched the movie, and have come out with their review.
Kesari is being called a must watch movie for every Indian. Based on the real-life battle of Saragarhi, Kesari is all about the courage and patriotism of 21 Sikhs who fought against 10,000 Afghan invaders.
Directed by Anurag Singh, the movie is being highly appreciated for various reasons. The main highlights of Kesari are its action, dialogues and the screenplay. It is being called a fast-paced film with no dull moment.
Akshay Kumar has been winning a lot of accolades for his performance in the film. In fact, it is being called his best performance till date. Although Parineeti Chopra does not have much screen presence, she also plays her part well. The supporting cast too is impressive.
The trailer of Kesari had impressed most of the viewers, and now looks like the movie is even more brilliant.
