The film transports us back to the days of young Udham Singh’s life when he was in Punjab then while on his mission in different parts of the world. The transition through different phases of his life was smooth. Kudos to Shoojit Sircar, who balanced the time period extremely well.
The ambience truly transported us to into a different era
Recently in one of his interviews, Shoojit Sircar mentioned that he has never been to London. But can you believe that even without travelling and having a look at the city, he and his team of cinematographers and production team managed to create grand sets which depicted London in the early 19th century. From the cars (now considered to be vintage) to the attire, every minute detail was taken care of.
Vicky Kaushal's impeccable performance
Vicky's acting was so real that the audience is left in awe of his performance. He has surprised everyone with his Sardar Udham avatar and audiences have appreciated his portrayal thoroughly. Giving one of his career’s best performances till date, Vicky’s emotions and feelings as Udham were deeply felt and his tears in the movie became the viewer’s tears.
The Supporting Cast
The supporting cast of the movie gelled in well with the story and got into the character’s skin, be it the actors who played the role of Britishers or the actors who took active participation in India's freedom struggle. Actors like Banita Sandhu as Reshma, Shaun Scott as Micheal O’Dwyer, Amol Parashar as Bhagat Singh, Stephen Hogan as Detective Inspector John Swain were a treat for the viewer's eyes.
Spine-chilling visual depiction of the Jallianwala Bagh Massacre
The depiction of the horrific episode which inspired Udham Singh to kill Sir Micheal O'Dwyer has left a hard-hitting impact.
