"#Kesari Superb!! Goosebumps in most part of the movie. Story of an amazing bravery by 21 Sikh soldiers against 10000 invaders in battle of #Saragarhi. Awesome performance by @akshaykumar."

"#Kesari : Average 3/5 Lengthened unnecessaryly. Boring in the middle part. Could have been short yet powerful by removing the unnecessary scenes. Still @akshaykumar steals the show in climax fight scene. #KesariReview #KesariMovieReview."
"Cinematography of #kesari just breathtaking .. @akshaykumar sir is outstanding as usual,music is great and just helps understanding movie's pace. Just speechless. There were a foreign trailer reactor who was saying that it is like India's 300 but it is our #Kesari #KesariReview."
