Bollywood Box Office King Akshay Kumar is back to rewrite the record books with Kesari. The film which released last Friday is now the first official blockbuster of 2019 in Bollywood overtaking the collections of Gully Boy. With the weekend approaching, the film is all set to mint some more bucks and join the 100 crore club. The success of this movie illustrates no matter what the situation is (whether it’s IPL fever or election frenzy), films with good content always gains people’s admiration.
Period films generally have huge takers in Bollywood. Kesari is based on the Battle of Saragarhi between Sikh regiment of the British army and Pashtun tribes from Afghanistan, a history that is largely forgotten. The battle is known for the bravery and valiance exhibited by Sikh soldiers who were just 21 in number to the Pashtuns who were thousands in numbers. In the film, Akshay plays the role of Havildar Ishar Singh, who led the 36th Sikh regiment. Parineeti Chopra plays Akshay’s wife in the film. Critics have also heaped praise on the movie especially the leads and actors who played soldiers. The film is high on nationalism and is a tribute to the 21 soldiers who fought valiantly against the invading marauders.
