The trailer of the much-awaited film of Vicky Kaushal Sardar Udham was unveiled today. The makers paid a special tribute to one of the greatest martyrs in Indian history, Sardar Udham Singh, during a press conference in Mumbai. Produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar, and directed by Shoojit Sircar, this much-awaited film also stars Shaun Scott, Stephen Hogan, Banita Sandhu, and Kirsty Averton in pivotal roles and Amol Parashar in a special appearance. Sardar Udham will be streaming this Dussehra starting 16th October.
The trailer gives a glimpse into the life of Sardar Udham Singh, played by Vicky Kaushal in a never-seen-before avatar. This story showcases the undying bravery, fortitude, and fearlessness of an unsung hero, from the deeply buried annals of our history. The film focuses on the undeterred mission of Sardar Udham Singh to avenge the lives of his beloved brethren, who were ruthlessly murdered in the Jallianwala Bagh Massacre of 1919.
Speaking about the film Vicky who essays the role of Sardar Udham said, “The story of Sardar Udham Singh is one that enthralled and inspired me. It represents strength, pain, passion, extraordinary courage and sacrifice, and many such values that I have tried to do justice through my character in the film. The role called for a lot of physical, and even more mental preparation to get into Udham Singh’s shoes and bring to life the story of a man whose heroism and grit stand unmatched,”
He further added, “I look forward to sharing an intriguing page from the history of India’s freedom struggle through this film. This is one story that needs to be shared not only in India but also across the world and I am happy that, with Amazon Prime Video, Sardar Udham will cut through geographies and take a piece of our history across the world.”
“Sardar Udham to me is not just a film, it is a dream come true. It took years of in-depth research to unearth and share with the world the valiant story of a martyr who sacrificed his life to avenge India’s most dreadful tragedy,” said Shoojit Sircar, about his experience of directing Sardar Udham.
Shoojit concluded by saying, “The true essence of Udham Singh’s patriotism and bravery lives in the hearts of each and every person in Punjab even today. My aim was to make a film that familiarizes the viewers with Udham Singh’s valor and inspires them. This film is my ode to his lionhearted spirit, his fearlessness, and his sacrifice in the fight for the country’s independence. The entire team is extremely proud to have had an opportunity to work on bringing forward a story of a revolutionary who played a key role in India's freedom struggle.”
