Kesari is based on true events, about a group of brave-hearted Sikh soldiers battling against ten thousand Afghans robust army. These Sikh soldiers are positioned in the 36 regiments located in Saragarhi which is lead by Havildar Ishar Singh (Akshay Kumar).
Later, it shows the soldiers witnesses a woman about to get killed by a group of Afghans. Despite the British officer advising him to not get involved, Ishar attacks the Afghans and saves the lady.

Kesari Music review
The film has a piece of patriotic music which arise goosebumps. Also, Manoj Muntashir does spread a lot of magic in the songs with his lyrics and one of my favorites is Teri Mitti. Whereas Punjabi singer B Paraak has made his debut in Bollywood as a playback singer with Ae Meri Zameen.
In this film, most of the Punjabi singers have written and composed the music. On the other hand, Arjith Singh and Asses Kaur has sung Peeche Peeche a romantic song. The overall music is groovy with meaningful lyrics.
Kesari Actor Performance Review
Well, Akshay Kumar has done many patriotic films putting his fans amazed. With the vigorous acting of Akshay Kumar in the film makes worth watching. Kesari starts with action and establishes Ishan Singh’s righteous character right from the beginning of the film.
But, this action scene does not extend to the first half. However, the first half of the film is relaxed and provides ample entertainment. But, Parineeti Chopra has appeared in a few scenes which are hardly a 10 minutes role. In Akshay Kumar’s collection of films, Kesari could surely rank among one of his excellent performances and possibly his biggest blockbusters.
- Akshay Kumar’s acting
- Story Well- Documented
- Excellent lyrics and music
- Amazing Dialogues
- No action scenes in the first half
- Few scenes of Parineeti Chopra
- IMDb has given 8.4 out of 10 for Kesari
