The Press Reviews

  • Akshay Kumar is the film. And he pulls it off, keeping that 'kesari pagdi' aloft right till the end, delivering thundering speeches while keeping his men's morale up. Full Review

  • Much like the battle in this period war drama, Singh stretches proceedings interminably. Full Review

  • A movie that should have been about a legendary last stand becomes yet another star vehicle for Akshay Kumar, who is the only character with a back story. Full Review

  • Kesari is a story of undiluted heroism, but too much goodness can get a tad boring. Watch it if you like chest-thumping films about brave soldiers. Full Review

  • With technical brilliance, intricate writing and thundering performances, Kesari is a loud war cry that evokes strong feelings of patriotism and it also wrenches your heart with its climactic tragedy. Full Review

  • The brave and bloody Battle of Sargarhi will remain in the history books, but Kesari is unlikely to join it there. Full Review
