Saragarhi is the place which is the communicating post between Fort Gulistan and Fort Lockhar. In the year 1897, the Afghans attempted to capture Saragarhi, to cut off the link between those two forts. The Afghans know that there are only a few soldiers in the regiment. But, the British Indian Army led by Ishar Singh had a tough fight with them. Battle of Saragarhi is the main plot in Kesari. How the Soldiers of the Sikh regiment fought against the Afghanistan troupe of 10, 000 people is the core theme. Do you know how many soldiers were there in the Sikh regime? Just 21. How bold they were to face 10, 000 people face to face!


Star Performance

Akshay Kumar excelled in his role and his heroics look great. His dialogue delivery and body language are excellent. Parineeti has nothing significant to do in the film. Toranj Kayvon, Mir Sarwar and the rest of the cast did their job fine.


The script is neat and the screenplay too. Although we know that those 21 soldiers couldn’t do much before 10, 000 people, the director makes us watch the film with a lot of nail-biting moments. The costume designs are simply awesome. Production designs didn’t attract much. Anshul Chobey, the cinematographer had done a lot in this film with his breathtaking shots. Although the action scenes are shot emotionally, there are a some logical loopholes, as it is a big hero film. Yet, the audiences love to watch Akshay’s heroics.

What’s There?​

  • Akshay’s performance is fantastic
  • Spectacular visuals by Anshul Chobey
  • Screenplay and execution are perfect

What’s Not There?

  • Production designs are not perfect in all the shots
  • Over the top heroics could have been avoided


As the film started as a real-life story, the heroics looks a bit odd. If we watch the film only for Akshay Kumar, then we don’t feel anything odd. Kesari showers a lot of patriotism. If you are a patriotic story lover, don’t miss it!
