Shershaah Movie Review

For a soldier, there is no religion greater than the love of patriotism. The film Sher Shah, released on Amazon Prime, gives this only message from beginning to end. Vishnuvardhan, who has made eight films in Tamil as a director, has come to Hindi for the first time. Producer Karan Johar’s film is inspired from the life of Param Vir Chakra winner martyr Captain Vikram Batra of Kargil War (1999).

Although Kargil war has been mentioned in many Hindi films, films like LoC, Lakshya, Stumped, Dhoop, Tango Charlie and Mausam to Gunjan Saxena have been made on it. But Sher Shah is different from these as it focuses entirely on the true bravery of a martyr. The film Shershaah especially shows how the brave soldiers of our army defeated the enemy Pakistani army while climbing the cold-icy peaks from 16 thousand to 18 thousand feet high. It was Captain Vikram Batra and brave like him, thanks to which the country, on the orders of dictator General Pervez Musharraf, hijacked the Pakistani army that had entered our border. Such was the lies and brashness of Pakistan that it had refused to accept the dead bodies of its soldiers, denying the charge of waging war. Then our army buried the enemy soldiers on the same peaks with full respect. This is told in the film.

Shershaah, which is more than two hours long, focuses on Vikram Batra’s valor as a soldier, but the love story has also been threaded in a strict way to make it entertaining for the common people. Vikram Batra (Siddharth Malhotra), studying in a college in Chandigarh, falls in love with Sikh-bala Dimple (Kiara Adnani). Which gradually reaches the intentions of marriage, but Dimple’s father does not approve of the relationship. Despite this, when it seems that this love will reach a happy end, only then the Kargil war starts and Vikram, who came to meet the family members, immediately returns to duty.

Shershaah director Vishnuvardhan has filmed Captain Vikram Batra’s bravery in detail and focused on his role in the rescue of two peaks captured by the Pakistanis. Captain Vikram Batra while going on a war mission gets the codeword, Sher Shah. To his senior’s question, what will be the signal from his side if the mission is successful, Batra’s answer is: Yeh Dil Maange More. First Nayak Point 5140 frees the peak from Pakistanis and then Point 4875. The liberation of Point 4875 from the Pakistanis directly meant the end of the war because from this post the enemy could control the area up to 70 km into the Indian border. Before the Pakistani army could reach here with fresh weapons and logistics, Captain Batra and his detachment played their lives in destroying the Pakistani post at Point 4875. In this he was martyred. Batra was only 24 years old then.

The entire campaign of Kargil war is shown interestingly in Shershah, the role of Vikram Batra is beautifully played by Siddharth Malhotra and his acting is good here. He is frozen in the stature of a soldier. At the same time, Kiara Advani also looks serious in the role of Dimple. The other supporting actors are right in their respective places. The story, screenplay and dialogues of Sher Shah are written by Sandeep Srivastava. He has done his job successfully. Kamaljit Negi took complete control of the camera and brought the battle scenes to life.
