Vicky Kaushal’s Sardar Udham DROPPED from the Oscar’s race and the reason will leave you SHOCKED

Vicky Kaushal’s Sardar Udham was in the race of Oscars along with Mandela, Nayatt, Sherni and others films.

Vicky Kaushal’s historical biographical drama, Sardar Udham, which as of late premiered on Amazon Prime Video, opened to rave reviews, where fans and pundits applauded the performance of the lead actor and director’s vision and story. The film was in the race of India’s official entry to Oscars alongside Mandela, Nayatt, Sherni, and others. But a jury of 15 members headed by Malayalam filmmaker Shaji N Karun, went through 15 movies and picked Koozhangal as India’s entry.

In an interview, Indraadip Dasgupta told TOI, “Sardar Udham is a well-made production with brilliant cinematography that lives up to international standards. But it is a little lengthy and harps on the Jallianwala Bagh incident.” Asserting that the film projects India’s hatred towards British, he added , “It is an honest effort to make a lavish film on an unsung hero of the Indian freedom struggle. But in the process, it again projects our hatred towards the British. In this era of globalization, it is not fair to hold on to this hatred. Koozhangal in contrast is a truly Indian film with a global appeal. It has no agenda attached to it. It is the most honest film among all the contenders.”

Sardar Udham is based on the life of a freedom fighter named Udham Singh, who assassinated Brigadier-General Reginald Dyer, Michael O’Dwyer, the lieutenant governor of Punjab, dead to avenge the infamous Jallianwala Bagh Massacre of 1919. The movie likewise includes October fame actress Banita Sandhu in a lead role. It is produced by Sheel Kumar and Ronnie Lahiri.
