The trailer of Akshay Kumars ‘Kesari‘ is passionate and bombastic brimming over with nationalistic indignation as Akshay plays a Sardar Ishar Singh who along with 21 Sikh soldiers defeated an Afghan battalion of 10000 soldiers.
“Bahar 10,000 hain, aur hum sirf 21.” (There are 10,000 out there and we are only 21).
That’s what Havildar Ishar Singh, a leader of Sikh soldiers in the British Indian Army, told his men at a time when they were staring into the eyes of 10,000 Afghan invaders in Saragarhi. But the small army did not flinch. Instead, they took on the massive army of Pathans head on in the firecest battle ever fought. The Battle of Saragarhi.
And for the first time, Karan Johar along with Akshay Kumar is bringing the story to the big screen with Kesari.
After months of waiting, the much-awaited trailer of Kesari is out the web, giving a glimpse into the epic battle. The three-minute trailer speaks volumes about the courage and valour of the Sikh soldiers.
A film that not only retells the story of heroism but also salutes the passion and courage of 21 Sikh soldiers who did not bow down in front of 10,000 invaders.
