An actor who is peeled back a layer at a time, Vicky Kaushal as an actor is growing impressively with his every upcoming film. Vicky as Major Vihan Shergill is impressive; one emotional scene where Major Vihaan grieves someone’s death when he wants to cry but has to maintain a dignified silence is just breathtaking.
Television actor Mohit Raina as an Indian soldier did really well in the film. Versatile actor Paresh Rawal is also there playing a significant role. For the actress, while there wasn't much for Yami Gautam in the film but her charm on the silver screen is jaw-dropping.
While the stirring performances of each actor are self-noticing, the direction and the pace of the film keeps its audience engaged in the story -and this -leads us to the next point!
