Living for the country!


Movie Review- Shershaah

Uniforms carry a charm, that touches everyone.

Today the morning began with watching Shershaah. And when it comes to the country, we always become vulnerable regarding the subject. Especially when you have cousins who are in Indian Army and Air Force. Shershaah is a biopic of Captain Vikram Batra, PVC, who became a martyr in the 1999 Kargil War. The FILAM successfully gives you bouts of emotional catastrophes, especially towards the end. The FILAM is a projection of his love life and life as a soldier. The two plots intertwined nicely by Vishnuvardhan, of course giving more weightage to Captain Vikram Batra’s life as a soldier.

Siddharth Malhotra plays the real hero onscreen, and with full conviction. He seems a little out of place in the beginning but as they say few stories are above the actors, and are the real heroes. Siddharth also gradually becomes the support for the screenplay, and ends up being likeable. Kiara Advani contributes a good support.  

The interview scene of Captain Vikram Batra after the war, is the USP of the FILAM, for me. How? Figure it out yourself and tell me in the comment section if you can understand what I mean?

The FILAM is a simple portrayal of Captain Vikram Batra’s life and thankfully does not have any pomp and show, unlike Dharma Production. The end leaves you with a sense of pride and gratitude for all the heroes for whom the love for their country is bigger than anything else in the world.

And how conveniently we forget that we are safe here, in the comfort of our homes, because they’re there fighting for us. 

Do watch Shershaah for the courage, patriotism, valor, and love that our youth needs ardently. Captain Vikram Batra’s life is an example of how LOVE is not just an emotion, that you feel for few people, but is actually a way of LIFE that has to be equally divided for everything that exists.
