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.
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.
‘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.
