The official trailer of one of the most awaited movies of the year, Sardar Udham, has now dropped on Youtube. Set to release on 16 October on the OTT platform Amazon Prime Video, it narrates the life story of the great revolutionary Shaheed Udham Singh.
Vicky Kaushal is set to play the lead role of the freedom fighter and his look reveal has already blown away the internet world. The trailer lets us more into Vicky’s look and there is no doubt he’s absolutely nailed it. The 2 minute 29 second video is enough to get the audience on their toes for this highly anticipated movie.
Will Vicky Kaushal’s ‘Sardar Udham’ Change The Way Punjabis Have Been Represented In Bollywood?
The story in itself is legendary, a revolutionary who assassinated Michael O’Dwyer in London to take revenge for the 1919 Jallianwala Bagh massacre in Amritsar and registered himself forever in the books of history and India’s freedom struggle. But what the audience is eyeing, is the factual accuracy of the movie. There have been many attempts to make a movie on Shaheed Udham Singh’s life but none have been satisfactory enough. Sardar Udham has the hopes of people with it.
Shoojit Sircar is a brilliant director and this time too, the trailer reveals that he is not leaving any stones unturned in making Sardar Udham a movie to remember. The movie has the outlook of 1940s England. The royalty of England is totally visible in the short clips of the movie that we’ve been shown in the trailer and the colour theme gives it the historical feel.
The background music has been chosen to represent the epic vibe, as per the epic story it is based upon. The Punjabi community in particular has high expectations from the film. Punjabis have always been represented as a medium of either masculinity or comedy, it is for the first time that Bollywood is making a film Punjabi figure of Shaheed Udham Singh’s stature and Punjabis wish no more to be disappointed this time. 16 October, the legendary story unveils.
