Our Opening Day Prediction

‘Kesari’ is a mirror to patriotism. It is based on the the battle of Saragarhi. A battle that is considered as one of history’s greatest last stands. We believe the movie will strike a chord among the audiences and here are some factors that we believe will work in its favour.


‘Kesari’ is a true story of battle of Saragarhi. On September 12, 1897, 21 Sikh soldiers of the British Indian Army were pitted against 10,000 Afghans. 21 soldiers against 10,000 Afghans Tribesmen seems impossible to defeat but Havildar Ishar Singh did not step back and each of the 21 men made their presence count by fighting valiantly against all odds in the deadliest battle ever fought. The movie salutes the valour of these Sikh soldiers who fought courageously.


Akshay is back with his action but this time his story has as much as heart as it has action.  Akshay plays the role of Havildar Ishar Singh, who led the Sikhs in the Battle of Saragarhi and defended his post against an army of 10,000 Afghan soldiers. Anurag Singh’s directorial venture has Parineeti playing Akshay’s love interest. It is for the first time that Parineeti will share screen with Khiladi Kumar. The chemistry between Akshay and Parineeti looks vibrant and impressive together though that is not the crux of the film. What remains the crux is Akshay in this role of a real-life Sikh fighter, Havildar Ishar Singh and he seems to fit the role to the T.


The genre is one of the main reasons for a person to be interested in watching the movie at first place. The action-war genre is intriguing and to add to that, the film is based on a real incident which not many are aware of. So, it has raised curiousity to know more about the battle fought.


‘Sanu Kehndi’, is a understated Punjabi romp. Ajj Singh Garjega is a Punjabi track sung by Jazzy B in what appears to be a battle cry for Akshay’s unit of 21 soldiers where even Akashy sang few lines for the song. The song opens mellow with the tune of the tumbi, and then the percussion kicks in. The thumping dhol music then perfectly gets in sync with the mood of the film, which is imbued with patriotism and battlefield action. Jazzy’s energetic voice is sure to lift the morale of the Sikh soldiers in the time of crisis. The song is written by Kunwar Juneja and music is composed by Chirrantan Bhatt.
