Vicky Kaushal's recently released film Sam Bahadur has been generating massive buzz among audiences. The biographical war drama is expected to make a significant impact at the box office, with its potential being described as that of a dark horse that could surprise everyone. Social media is abuzz with reviews of Vicky Kaushal's performance in 'Sam Bahadur,' and industrialist Anand Mahindra has also shared his thoughts on the film.
He wrote, "There is a powerful virtuous cycle created when a country produces movies which tell the stories of their heroes.
Especially about soldiers & narratives of leadership & courage. The pride & self-belief of people multiply. More heroes emerge when people know their courage will be feted. Hollywood has created this virtuous cycle for a century. So thank you @RonnieScrewvala for making such movies for us. Especially about this ‘gazab ka banda, sab ka banda’ as the song says. The movie isn’t flawless but @vickykaushal09 transforms himself into Sam Bahadur in a goosebump-raising and award-winning characterisation. Go see it and cheer an authentic Indian Hero," he added.
Sam Bahadur stars Vicky in the titular role and is set against the backdrop of the 1971 India-Pakistan war where Sam Manekshaw led the Indian Army, following which a new nation Bangladesh was born. It is directed by Meghna Gulzar and also features Sanya Malhotra, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Govind Namdev, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, and Neeraj Kabi in pivotal roles.
