Shershaah Is The  Ideal Independence Weekend Entertainer, A  Sneak Peek

Last year for Independence Day ,Karan Johar had  produced  Gunjan Saxena, The Kargil Girl, a  biopic on the life  of   India’s first female airforce officer  who flew  into a war,  that was immensely liked. This  year on the same  occasion he has Shershaah  another war- hero epic ready. This time it  is Paramveer Chakra winner Vikram  Batra whose story is given a splendid celluloid  spin by director Vishnu Vardhan.

It  was  Sidharth  Malhotra’s  idea to do a Vikram  Batra  bio-pic.  When he went to his friend producer Karan  Johar,  the idea was  shot down.  “Not so soon after Gunjan Saxena,”  said Karan. “Why not?”   Sid Malhotra convinced  his friend and mentor  in  no time at  all.

To give the  film a fresh vibrant look, Karan Johar invited Tamil director Vishnuvardhan who  was  at first  reluctant. But Karan  offered  Vishnu two preemptive incentives  to make his Bollywood debut:no interference, unlimited budget.  ResultantlyShershaah  is  one  of  the  best-looking war films  India has ever produced. The battle sequences do not  resort heavily to special effects and computer graphics. The war sequences are on a  par with what  war mohgul J P Dutta shoots. In  fact JP saw the trailer of  Shershaah. He is all praise  for  the  battle scenes.

Sidharth Malhotra plays  the  double role of Vikram Batra and his twin brother  Vishal Batra. If we look closely  , the two characters are kept remarkably separate from one another. For  the soldier’s part Malhotra  undertook the full soldier’s regime . By the end  of his training, Karan Johar  was convinced  that Malhotra could easily join the Indian army. So authentic  is Malhotra’s  war-herogiri  that  I am pretty  sure  the  performance will be  highly eligible  for a  National award.

Kiara Advani plays  Sidharth Malhotra’s Significant Other. The two have  not been  seen together  in any other  film.I can tell  you straightaway that they make a smashing made-for-each-other pair. The  fact that they are linked together  offscreen enhances  their onscreen togetherness.
