Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar has yet again proved that he is the real actor who is always in his best. His latest release ‘Kesari’ has hit a century at the Box Office and his film also achieved another feat of becoming the fastest Rs 100 crore grosser of 2019. The movie entered the coveted Rs 100 crore club in flat 7 days.
Akshay and Parineeti Chopra play the lead roles in the movie and this is the first time that Parineeti has been paired with Akshay. Kesari is an engrossing war drama with all the ingredients — an intriguing chapter in history, high-adrenaline action, strong emotions and a terrific performance from its leading actor Akshay . Director Anurag Singh tells the story of the 1897 Battle of Saragarhi, where 21 Sikh soldiers valiantly took on the might of 10,000 soldiers from the Afghan army. Kesari goes beyond the typical war film because it establishes its lead characters with back stories, while portraying a historic period in all authenticity. It also leaves you with a sense of patriotism.
At the forefront of the story is Havildar Ishar Singh (Kumar), a man of honour, who commands the 36th Sikh battalion. Kumar, through his performance, portrays Sikh values with dignity, and yet at the same time, he commands the screen with his presence. The movie was released worldwide in 4200 screens. It has been produced by Dharma Productions and written by Girish Kohli and Anurag Singh.
