Sardar Udham movie cast: Vicky Kaushal, Stephen Hogan, Shaun Scott, Kirsty Averton, Andrew Havill, Banita Sandhu, Amol Parashar Sardar Udham movie director: Shoojit Sircar Movie streaming on Amazon Prime Video Story: The film pays tribute to an unsung hero — Sardar Udham Singh (Vicky Kaushal), an Indian revolutionary, who assassinated Michael O’Dwyer in London (in 1940), to avenge the Jallianwala Bagh massacre (of 1919). The former British colonial official was the Lieutenant Governor of Punjab (British India) at the time.

Jagame Thandhiram Review: A Must Watch Only For Dhanush Fans

Cast: Dhanush, James Cosmo, Aishwarya Lekshmi, Kalaiyarasan and Joju George Director: Karthik Subbaraj Rating: 2.5 stars (out of 5) Dhanush’s effervescence is undeniably infectious. A few of Karthik Subbaraj’s trademark directorial flourishes are passably arresting. Neither is, however, able to help Jagame Thandhiram surmount the upshots of a slapdash script and a punishing runtime. Jagame Thandhiram, streaming on Netflix, is sporadically enlivened by the lead actor’s dynamic presence and the surfeit of color and energy that the director injects into it. The problem is that the high-voltage Tamil crime drama aspires to larger socio-political significance than its standard gang war thriller format has the scope for. The hero of Jagame Thandhiram, gangster Suruli (Dhanush), is no paragon of virtue. A wily young man in a violent world, he is a thug with no moral compass. He will stop at nothing, not even murder and betrayal, to get…
