sadar udham movie review in hindi, Rating:{3.0/5}

Written by admin
The film is a tribute to the hero of the country’s freedom struggle, Sardar Udham Singh (Sardar Udham Movie Review). Vicky Kaushal is in the lead role. Revolutionary Sardar Udham Singh shot and killed Michael O’Dwyer in London. This incident of the year 1940 was actually a revenge for the Jallianwala Bagh massacre in 1919. At the time of that dastardly massacre, Michael O’Dwyer was the governor of Punjab during the British rule. Michael Dwyer justified the killing of hundreds of people at Jallianwala Bagh.

First things first, if you are imagining such a film which will kindle the fire of patriotism in you, then ‘Sardar Udham’ is not that kind of film at all. Nor do you expect such dialogue from this film, which makes the blood boil in the veins. The film is completely based on true events that happened in pre-independence India. This is the story of a revolutionary who is burning in the fire of misery and revenge. The hero of the story makes his numb pain his strength and silence as his voice. At the age of just 20, Sardar Udham witnessed a barbaric crime, the killing of hundreds of people, the feeling of revenge in him was so strong that he made it the purpose of his life till 20 years later.

The set of the film is of the beginning of World War II. The story sometimes runs in flashback and sometimes in the middle of today. The canvas of the film is huge, but there seems to be a lack of information and content on Sardar Udham Singh. Here is the story of a man who is hurt from inside, who kept on doing his work in silence. In such a situation, a challenge was to get all the information available about him, connecting all those points and getting it on the canvas. Shoojit Sircar tried to decode the ‘why’, not the ‘how’ he did what he did. The film aims to understand what were the feelings of an innocent boy from Amritsar. Who did not even want to keep a gun away to shoot anyone. After all, why did he shoot with point zero at Michael Dwyer and still not run away from the spot? Was he driven to seek revenge? Why did he bear that pain for two decades? Why is the same person a revolutionary and a terrorist for different people?

Shoojit Sircar has made films like ‘Piku’ and ‘Vicky Donor’. Heroes of his films never do things like heroism. Sardar Udham also does not hate any person or his country. His fight was against the right of others to speak and live freely and against British ideology. The runtime of 2 hours, 42 minutes is too long. makes you tired. In the meantime, Shoojit Sarkar takes us on a mission. A stubborn Sardar introduces Udham. He follows Michael Dwyer in a shadow.

For a long time in the film, we remain only spectators of the journey of one human being. During this, the audience is not able to fully connect with the story. We see them doing odd jobs in London which is headed for a murder. The pace of the film makes you tired. This movie is like a ticking time bomb waiting to explode, but be careful. Here you have to be patient. When Sardar Udham’s turmoil reaches its peak, it is cleverly brought to an end in the climax and leads to the result. The way the Jallianwala Bagh massacre is depicted on screen, it leaves an impression on you.

Vicky Kaushal as Sardar Udham makes an effort which he has never done before. He tries his best to keep the untold words out of his eyes. But in such a film, Irrfan’s eyes speak, he was also the first choice of the film. Vicky Kaushal has done a great job in some scenes. Especially in a scene where he is intoxicated. The scene of his conversation with a British investigative officer as a 20-year-old is terrific. ‘My youth made sense?’ Hearing this breaks your heart too. While writing the story, every effort has been made to save it from the cliche, but in the end it seems like a contemporary thing.

Bhagat Singh’s Hinglish dialogues in the film like, ‘We are just against exploitation’. We don’t want semi-independence. Considering the setting of the film, an attempt has been made to give it a place. What remains with the audience after the film is over are the memories of Sardar Udham Singh’s turbulent past and a British officer asking him, ‘What were you doing when you were 23?’

Sardar Udham’s courage never wavered. This freedom fighter traveled across continents, created many fake identities and remained hidden for life, disappearing in crowds. If you too long to know about his quiet existence, then this film is for you.
