Sardar Udham is a
technically one of the most perfect historical biopic that has been made by the Indian industry so far.
There are no songs and no forced romance. The non – linear storytelling and every aspect of the film is exceptional. Bravo!!!
And the story of Udham Singh is one of the Indian freedom struggle’s most underrated stories.
Many might not like the non – linear storytelling which is sometimes slow-paced, but that’s how a historical biopic should be.
Such a biopic will stay with you for many years.
The best part is that it’s not only about Udham Singh. It’s about the struggle of those unknown revolutionaries who got martyred.
The Jallianwala Bagh scene is arguably one of the most haunting scenes I’ve seen in an Indian film.
They were able to show the horror and brutality of that massacre that carnage that pogrom by the Britishers on the ill-fated Baisakhi day of 1919.
After watching the shooting sequence something I noticed immediately was the holes on the wall created by the bullets. Also reminded me of the recent MODIFICATION done at Jallianwala Bagh by the Union Govt
How insensitive must be one to have a light show there
British shoe cleaners wanted to hide and gloss over the brutalities of that massacre …what best way to remove it under the garb of renovation
Even the role of supporting british actor should be appreciated they didn’t act like those forced stereotypes british the way bollywood always had portrayed them.
