Sardar - Bobby Talls Cinema.com

This is one of those rare realistic movies, which is written around the historical events and decisions which took place at the time of India’s Partition and Independence. Though very few youngsters from the current generation would be interested in watching anything made on this particular subject but if they can really find time to watch “Sardar”, then I can bet that it would be a real eye opener for all, making them aware of many unknown, hard and bitter truths about our own leaders of that time. In few words, not much was told cinematically about Sardar Patel’s contribution in the freedom struggle before this epic by the thinking director, Ketan Mehta.
In all possibilities, after viewing “Sardar”, your whole outlook towards the freedom struggle and influence of our own leaders on it, would change drastically. The picture of Gandhi, Nehru, Ambedkar, Patel and many other people in your minds is sure going to witness a totally new dimension and meaning through this important film. So, as I see, this movie along with “Gandhi” by Richard Attenborough should be made mandatory to be shown in all the schools of India at the Secondary level, to give the young students the right picture of what happened at that time on the political front in INDIA. And I am sure it will change the viewpoint of at least 25% of the current young brigade towards a Positive mark.
Along with its thoughtful direction by Ketan Mehta, the movie reaches more commendable heights through an impeccable performance by Paresh Rawal, playing Sardar Patel with his own strong conviction and style. Undoubtedly it has to be there in the list of his 5 Best movies till date. So if you are really interested in HISTORY or rather POLITICAL HISTORY of India, then SARDAR is a must watch for you, which will surely open many more new avenues in your understanding of the avoidable event of 1947. To sum up, I can easily say that if SARDAR PATEL would not have been there, then the History would have been different. And that should make you run to know more about SARDAR.
