Shershaah Movie starts from a war scene where we see our soldiers struggling to capture a point at Kashmir Valley, and Captain Vikram Batra is leading that platoon. Then the movie transit to a talk show.

Where Captain Vikram Batra’s brother Vishal Batra is telling the story of his brother’s life to everyone. We see Vikram Batra was a very stubborn child from childhood and does not give up anything which belongs to him, and for that, he can fight with a much older person than him.

Captain Vikram Batra is very jolly in his nature and has the ability to be friends with anyone surrounding him. He is a happy soul and always keeps smiling. From his childhood days, Vikram always dreamt of becoming a soldier in the Indian Army.

Even at his school, he always wears Army Uniform at every 15th August and 26th January function. When Vikram joined college, he likes a girl named Dimple from his friend’s group and one day, they both confess their liking for each other.

They both started dating, and one day, Dimple’s father saw them together. Dimple’s father indirectly refuses their relationship because of cast issues. Then Vikram decides to join the Merchant Navy instead of the Army because Merchant Navy has a better salary.

Then Vikram joined Indian Army as a Lieutenant and gets his first posting in Kashmir in the 13 JAK RIF regiment. There Vikram uses his jolly nature to be friends with local residents of his area. There have been some militants attacks on them where Vikram fights very bravely, even not following direct orders from his seniors.

This shows that Lieutenant Vikram Batra is a very determined and brave soldier. He even believes that if you are a soldier, then you live by chance, love by choice, and kill by profession. Vikram Batra got noticed for his bravery by other senior officers.

Vikram also leads in a mission to kill a renowned Militant Hyder. Then finally, Vikram’s regiment got a mission to recapture point 5140, and there he was assigned his code name Shershaah and choose “Yeh Dil Mange More” as his victory code.

Vikram chooses this code because he is not going to stop after successfully recapturing point 5140. Even enemies know him as Shershaah and challenge him not to come after them, or they will have a very tough time.

After recapturing point 5140, Vikram got promoted from a Lieutenant to Captain Vikram Batra for his bravery. Then finally, Captain Vikram Batra lost his life while recapturing point 4875, but his platoon still successfully recaptured point 4875 with the leadership of Captain Vikram Batra.

Vikram Batra’s Love Life:

If we look at the story of Vikram Batra’s life, he is a very filmy person. So his love life is also very filmy and a very important part of his life and his journey, but, in the Shershaah movie, this subplot does not seem to contribute anyhow in Vikram Batra’s Army journey.

Vikram already decided to be an Army soldier from a very young age, and we never see Dimple having any influence in his life as an Army Soldier. Kiara Advani just exists in the movie as Vikram’s love interest only.

If we cut the whole character of Dimple from this movie, this movie barely has any effect on Vikram Batra’s journey.

Fake Punjabi Accent:

Siddharth Malhotra is a Punjabi himself, so he has no issues in adapting the Punjabi accent, but it is Kiara Advani, whose Punjabi accent looks pretty fake and feels like she is speaking in Punjabi as if someone is forcing her to do so.

This is not a significant drawback as Kiara does not have a much longer role to play in this movie, but still, her accent feels awkward while listening to her.

Not a Theatrical Release:

The biggest thing you will definitely feel after watching Shershaah Movie is that this movie should have been released in theatres. Shershaah Movie is designed for a theatrical release which we can clearly see while watching this movie.

Shershaah movie deserved a theatrical release, but due to the ongoing pandemic, makers of the movie had to release this movie on Amazon Prime Video.
