SHERSHAAH : An extraordinary story of a braveheart, presented simply but effectively

SHERSHAAH is an apt ode to a braveheart Captain Vikram Batra who died fighting in the Kargil war in 1999 at the age of 25.

SHERSHAAH encapsulates Capt. VIKRAM BATRA’S life both personal and professional in a simple yet effective format. Director Vishnuvardhan packs Vikram Batra’s life in 135 minutes with romance and action, keeping you invested throughout the 135 mins.

Written by Sandeep Srivastava the screenplay is paced well and never dips in tempo. One thing that I have to mention that movie does not fall prey to chest-thumping patriotism, jingoism, or Pakistan bashing. Patriotism is very subtle yet effective in the movie.

Sidharth Malhotra as Capt. Vikram Batra suits the role and gives an honest and sincere performance. Kiara Advani as Vikram’s fiance Dimple Cheema does a good job. The chemistry between the two actors lights up the screen. The rest of the cast comprising of Shiv Pandit, Nikitin Dheer, Shataf Figar, Abhiroy Singh, Anil Charanjeett, and Sahil Vaid all do a brilliant job taking the movie to the next level.

Need to mention the Cinematography by Kamaljeet Negi which is brilliant, especially in the combat sequences, while watching the movie you miss the big screen.

And another aspect of the movie which stands out is the music, normally which is the weakest in the recent movies, SHERSHAAH’S music stand out. All the music directors (there are 6) do a melodious job, Tanishk Bagchi, and Jasleen Royal compositions stand out.

SHERSHAAH is an extraordinary story of a braveheart, presented simply but effectively. At the end I was teary-eyed which means it touched my soul.
