@meghnagulzar till date, @vickykaushal09 keeps you hooked. Though Indira Gandhi’ real disliking for Manekshaw is not shown but the film glorifies the real hero!’
Another user wrote, ‘It’s always great to see Unsung heroes on the Silver Screen. Vicky Kaushal delivers a Top notch performance as Field Marshal “SAM MANEKSHAW” in #SamBahadur fetching him his 2nd National Award. He didn’t impersonate but captured the soul. Nevertheless, I loved it, I’m OK. #Samबहादुर”.
One user wrote, ‘#SamBahadurReview is a nice attempt to make a biopic which does go over the top sometimes to make a person larger than life who is already one in military circles. I liked the second half of the movie more, Vicky Kaushal has done a great job to live the role. Recommended. 4/5.’
Rooting for the film, another user wrote, ‘Outstanding, magnetizing performance and dialogue delivery, this is #VickyKaushal ‘s movie. #SamBahadur is worth a dekho on the big screen. Get ready to see thousands of reels with his style just like ‘Pushpa’. You will find many people act like him within friends and family. A good movie after a long time. Excellent performances by all the characters, great body language, short and crisp dialogues, you will feel like clapping..’
