'Moved to tears': Sam Manekshaw's daughter praises Sam Bahadur

| @indiablooms | 01 Dec 2023, 11:16 pm

"Sam Bahadur," based on India’s legendary army chief and inaugural field marshal Sam Manekshaw, hit the theaters on Friday and has garnered instant praise from critics and audiences alike. Actor Vicky Kaushal plays the titular role in the film.

Vicky’s portrayal of India’s one of most respected army generals has been widely commended not only by the viewers but Sam Manekshaw's daughter, Maja Daruwala, who said the film made her very emotional.

Maja Daruwala attended The Indian Express' Adda event alongside director Meghna Gulzar and Vicky Kaushal.

She said at the event, "They have made the film to make the country proud of whatever it was. But, the time that I tear up, every time, I've seen the film twice now and I teared up both times, is the last two seconds of the film when you turn to the audience and you're smiling. That just kills me every time." The video was shared by a fan page on Twitter.

Vicky Kaushal has been garnering appreciation from his friends, associates, and, naturally, his relatives. Abhishek Bachchan, his co-star from Manmarziyaan, sent Vicky Kaushal a thoughtful message expressing admiration.

He wrote on X, "Saw #SamBahadur last night. The enormity of all that #FieldMarshalSamManekshaw did and achieved is overwhelming! And so beautifully told on celluloid by my favourite @meghnagulzar. It's a huge responsibility to portray one of India's greatest sons and she does it wonderfully. To...the entire cast and crew, you should be very proud and thank you for telling this story. @fattysanashaikh @sanyamalhotra07.My veerey, @vickykaushal09, what do I even say about you... you continue to set the bar so high for all of us and then so effortlessly jump over it as only Sam can. All I can say is "Well done, sweety."

Katrina Kaif also acknowledged and praised Vicky's performance.

She wrote in an Instagram post, "Maghna Gulzar, such a poetic beautiful classic film, was transported to another era .. you can see your passion to telling his story and attention to detail in every shot."

She also reviewed her husband Vicky Kaushal's performance and how he gave life to the role of the legendary character of Sam Manekshaw on screen and wrote, "And SAM !!!!.....GRACE, HEROISM , GRIT. What a performance, flawless, I'm just astounded, you are too inspiring, and true to your craft in the most brilliant integral way, was so proud to watch you shine your way across the screen. I've seen you this last year pour yourself into this film and transform into Sam. A performance to be remembered."
