Sam Bahadur Review: Vicky Kaushal’s much-awaited film ‘Sam Bahadur’ has now been released at the box office. The hype surrounding the film was pretty amazing, and it clashed with Ranbir Kapoor’s Animal at the box office. Sam Bahadur is directed by Meghna Gulzar, and the film is suitable to watch with family and kids.
The film stars Vicky Kaushal, Fatima Sana Sheikh, and Sanya Malhotra in the main lead roles. The film also stars Zeeshan Ayub and Neeraj Kabi in crucial roles. The film is around 2 hours and 30 minutes long, and here is the detailed review of the film.
Honestly speaking, after watching the trailer of the film, I was so charged up for it. The trailer was so good that, for once, I thought the film would give tough competition to Animal at the box office. But sadly, the film fails in each and every aspect. Let’s talk about them one by one.
The lazy writing and lazy filmmaking are some of the biggest drawbacks of the film. Vicky Kaushal tries his best to save the film, but even his epic and award-winning performance can’t rescue the film. There are no thrilling moments in the film, and there is only one song, ‘Badhe Chalo,’ at the end that charges you up. Vicky was seen in films like URI, and that was phenomenal. I don’t know what the motive behind the film was, but I was expecting some really amazing war sequences which were missing throughout the film.

The songs were also dull and not engaging at all. The last few minutes of the film were good, and I thought I would finally see something, but again the film fails at the climax. If you are thinking of some high-end action and war sequences, then this film is not for you. The trailer of the film was brilliantly cut, and I started watching it with lots of expectations.
One of the biggest highlights of war-based films is the detailing, and again the detailing of war and fights were missing in the film. The film was more about the meetings and parties that were happening in ‘Sam Manekshaw’s life rather than the wars.
Huge appreciation for Vicky; he has pulled off the impressive character of Sam Manekshaw brilliantly, and you can’t take your eyes off him. Fatima Sana Sheikh as Indira was also amazing, and she has done a fabulous job. Sanya Malhotra as Sam’s wife was also good, and they share great chemistry.
I am going with 2.5 out of 5 stars for the film, and all the stars are for Vicky’s brilliance. There is nothing else in the film to watch, and you can skip it on the big screens. The film will release on Zee5 by the last week of January 2024, and you may watch the film there.
