Indian Army lawyer, Major Siddhant Chaudhary, has not only to deal with his father's death, but must also defend Captain Javed Khan. The later, charged with killing a decorated Major Virendra Singh Rathore, under various statutes of Indian laws & the Army Act, refuses to defend himself, admits to this killing, and awaits a guilt finding via a Court Martial. Siddhant decides to delve deeper, much to the chagrin of his prosecutor-friend, Major Akash Kapoor, not realizing that he will incur the wrath of his superiors; his work will come under sharp scrutiny; the journalist, Kaavya Shastri, assisting him will be arrested; and he may end up being transferred to violent and isolated areas in Assam and Bihar.Written by
Shaurya is a movie that illustrates the true meaning and value of gallantry. For decades, whether or not the government is a reliable or not, the public has always had full faith in our soldiers. Stories of valiant soldiers, the bravery needed to fight at the battlefield, the heroic sacrifices they make, and the honorable virtues of honesty, loyalty, and commitment to duty are legacies generations long that make an armed forces and a country proud. However, what is one to make of one soldier shooting a comrade? How can a dedicated soldier attack one of his own? The first answer that comes into the mind, and also the one that most would like to hear, is that the soldier is not one but a terrorist.
As India liberalizes, Shaurya dares to question some of the actions going on in a group that India has always trusted by and large--the army. While quite a few movies have attempted to venture into this theme, they by no means compare to Shaurya.
Everything about this movie is fantastic. Two things that stand out the most are the character development and the performances. Each role and dialog is so well-written and thought out. It is not a simple case of good vs. evil, or following the new trend of "gray shade characters", but rather a believable glimpse at reality. There are some brilliant scenes that further enhance the characters. With such meaty and intense roles, all the actors gave marvelous performances right from Rahul Bose (one of his best) to Javed Jaffari. The surprise package was K.K. who was mind-blowing at the climax.
