Sardar Udham Twitter Review: Here’s what the audience has to say about Vicky Kaushal starrer
Vicky Kaushal is leading the charge as Udham Singh in Shoojit Sircar’s directorial ‘Sardar Udham’. The film which was initially made for a theatrical run is currently streaming on a digital platform. In a chat with Firstpost, Shoojit spoke about the rich legacy of Indian freedom fighters and said, “I had been an ardent follower of Shaheed Bhagat Singh, and then I followed Sardar Udham Singh also. For me, the kind of conversations they wanted to have with people, it hasn’t directly reached the people yet. Their story has kind of stopped at the jingoistic ‘superhero freedom fighter’ stage.”
Further speaking about putting the visual aspect of Udham Singh together, Shoojit said, “There are not many photographs of him. There are five or six in total,” Sircar said. “There’s one important one outside Caxton Hall, there’s a passport picture, and there’s one where he’s working as a background artiste in a British film”.
Take a look at the tweets:
#SardarUdham what class film and a film for class filmy goers, Vicky is following footprints of imran Khan in bollywood. Such a gem. Look at his films and line-ups, OG superstar @vickykaushal09 pic.twitter.com/NlPLPTAG8a— ManU (@Manusharps) October 15, 2021
Had expected so much more from #SardarUdham, unnecessarily long and doesnt capture the sentiment of freedom struggle very well. Probably #LegendOfBhagatSingh has set such standards which are difficult to match. Despite the slow script, Vicky Kaushal does a great job!— Aaditya Tiwari (@aadityahbti) October 15, 2021

What a brilliant film made by #ShoojitSircar on a revolutionary #SardarUdhamSingh . Jallianwala Bagh masaccare scene had me in goosebump. It's bold and emotional. @vickykaushal09 is outstanding (as always) in titular role. Film streaming on @PrimeVideoIN .
#SardarUdham must watch for the 2nd half. First half is messy with the continuous back and forth in time. The film really just elevates onto another level after the court hearing. Vicky Kaushal with one of the best performances of the year.— hmmmmm (@gupshup__) October 15, 2021
Years of hard-work. It shows. So many details. A long movie but authentic and true. This was needed. This movie will be cemented in the history of Indian films. @vickykaushal09 @ronnielahiri #SardarUdham #SardarUdhamOnPrime #VickyKaushal— Pri (@Pri28293888) October 15, 2021
#SardarUdham - Fantastic 1st half with good 2nd half.#RiteshShah's Hard hitting Dialogues,#ShoojitSircar's Stunning Non Linear presentation, also ignites the revolutionary thoughts in the audience mind as well. #VickyKaushal is terrific in his space.— Nene (@ThisisHarsha_) October 15, 2021
2021 Bollywood's Best
Vicky added, “In one of them he’s (Udham Singh) wearing a hat, in another, he’s wearing a turban. There’s a time in his life when he’s clean-shaven, another when he’s being a Sardar with the beard and the turban, so we’ve tried to capture all of that. Plus, I’m playing him through ages 20 to 40, so we had to tailor each look accordingly. I had to lose a lot of weight and then gain it all back.” Vicky further spoke about speaking in Punjabi for the film and said, “When a theth-Punjabi speaking man has just entered London, you’d expect his English to be a little patchy, he’s kind of joining words from different languages together. But then, as he spends some years in the city, you see the rhythm and the flow improving”.
