Sam Bahadur Movie Review: Vicky Kaushal Impresses As India’s Great Son Manekshaw In Medicore Biographical Drama

'Sam Bahadur’ is a straight-ahead war drama that brings the best of Vicky Kaushal before you. Based on the dynamic life of India's first Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw. A Bollywood-style celebration of heroism in a war setting, ‘Sam Bahadur’ celebrates the career of Manekshaw in the army that spanned over four decades and five wars.  

Vicky Kaushal has indeed watched, and memorised, how the real-life Sam Manekshaw maneuvers. Just like the war hero, Vicky aced the art of being sweet with undertones of cockiness. Whatever the film’s cinematic faults, it’s hard to emerge from the theater unmoved or without having the urge to laud the real and reel hero.
