Kesari, which is based on the Battle Of Saragarhi (1897), is a hit among masses and has garnered rave reviews from critics as well. SpotboyE.com Editor Vickey Lalwani rated film 4 stars and highly appreciated the film. He said, “Kesari is a good watch, shot well, enacted well by even others apart from Akshay- but I wish that the dialogues were stronger, the music was better and Parineeti Chopra had a longer and meatier role than some of the heroines in JP Dutta's Border had. The camerawork is good especially in the climax when Akshay cuts the Afghanis into pieces. Magnificent spectacle, book your ticket for the weekend. The virtues outweigh the flaws.”
The weekend collection has surely set expectations high from Kesari. Now, let’s see how soon this Akshay Kumar-Parineeti Chopra starrer gallops to the 100 crore mark.
