Bharat will leave you with a lot of emotions.
It’s the time of India’s partition in 1947. An 8-year-old Bharat (Salman Khan) is separated from his father (Jackie Shroff) and younger sister in Lahore. Just before they are separated, his father tells him to keep the family together and that becomes his life goal. The film follows him and his various life phases over the years.
Bharat is a good blend of humour, action, and drama. It will make you laugh as well as cry. You’ll need a lot of tissues during the climax. The only problem is its length. With a length of 127 minutes, it seems very long. And the numerous songs don’t help.
The film mainly revolves around Salman Khan’s character and he honestly does a great job. His character ages but, his performance is consistent. Katrina Kaif is fine. Sunil Grover is excellent but the role limits him to a great extent.
A fine story with good performances makes Bharat a must watch.
