There's a scene at around the 40th minute in Kesari (Saffron) where a character cracks a joke so awful that it tells you something about the tepid writing that has gone behind the film. A superficial description of a real-life story of bravery and valour set in pre-Independent India, Anurag Singh's epic historical drama is mediocre in a lot of departments, most notably the production setup. I am also not satisfied with the turn of events in Kesari until it comes to one or two points about war and religious and territorial rivalry, nor was I thrilled to watch Akshay Kumar don the role of a maverick Sikh soldier. However, it did impress me when it subtly referred to the menace of the youth turning into terrorism in the present day world, which is why I regard the film as an average watch. Might be a notch or three better for people from the Sikh community both because of the sporadic language use and history. TN.
Amazingly Crafted war movie.... great mix of emotions comedy and war scenes
