Shershaah Movie Story:

Vikram Batra(Sidharth Malhotra) from his childhood dreamt of becoming a soldier. The show “Param Vir Chakra” used to inspire him a lot. He and his twin brother Vishal Batra(Also Sidharth Malhotra) live with their parents in Palampur, Himachal Pradesh.

His love interest is Dimple (Kiara Advani), whom he met in college. Their love story was going smoothly until it came to the notice of Dimple’s father (Bijay J Anand). Her father made him understood the caste differences that mean he won’t accept a guy from another caste as the life partner of his daughter.

The situation forced Vikram to inform his parents about his wishes to marry Dimple and join the merchant navy. Dimple also informed her father that if she had to marry someone then it will be only Vikram.

After listening to his plans about compromising dreams, his friend Sunny(Sahil Vaid) told him to follow his dreams only. After thinking a lot, Vikram decided to change his plan and join the Indian army. Dimple was unhappy initially but requested him to focus on this now complete and not to change it. He was posted at Sopore, Jammu and Kashmir as a Lieutenant.

Major Ajay Jasrotia aka Jassi (Nikitin Dheer), Major Subrata Mukherjee (Abhiroy Singh), Lieutenant Sanjeev Jamwal (Shiv Panditt), Subedar Raghunath (Raj Arjun), Naib Sudebar Bansi Lal Sharma (Anil Charanjeett) were the people in Vikram’s regiment.

From the beginning, his bravery has impressed everyone. He was kind and friendly with local people which were quite rare among the rare soldiers. With the help of a local guy, Vikram got valuable information about an evil militant Haider (Mir Sarwar). He and his team decided to go for the risky operation and they get rid of Haider.

During an operation of recapturing peak 5140, he was given the code name “Shershaah”. After successfully leading the operation, he was promoted from Lieutenant to Captain. Captain Vikram Batra breathed his last during the India-Pakistan war in 1999.

Performance & Analysis:

Sidharth Malhotra is the heart of “Shershaah”. It looked like he lived the character on every scene. It was certainly the best performance in his career till date. Whether you talk about the action, romantic or emotional scenes he was on top of everything.

He will be seen in upcoming movies Thank God along with Ajay Devgn & Rakul Preet Singh, and Mission Majnu co-starring RashmikaMandanna.

Kiara Advani was too good as Dimple, especially in the emotional scenes. Shiv Pandit, Nikitin Dheer, Shataf Figar, Sahil Vaid were the others who provided valuable contributions. The rest of the cast were also good job in supporting roles.

The “Shershaah” movie marks the Bollywood debut of director Vishnu Vardhan. He made the celebration of 75th Independence Day more special with this war drama “Shershaah”.

The action sequences were pretty good. The movie also scores high with music. It will enhance your patriotism on the eve of 15th August. Ignoring a few flaws, we can say “Shershaah” is a must-watch on Amazon Prime.
