Sidharth Malhotra's much-awaited project Shershaah released on Amazon Prime Video on August 12. While many would have already seen the film, those who have not watched it yet, this is a perfect Independence Day treat for various reasons. Right from Sidharth's spirit as Captain Vikram Batra to living a day in an Indian soldier's life, the film is a perfect tribute to the Indian army.

Also starring Kiara Advani, Shershaah is a film that must not be missed, Independence Day or not. It salutes the valour and bravery of Captain Vikram Batra like none other.

Here are a few more reasons to watch the film today...

To live every moment of Captain Vikram Batra's spirit


Captain Vikram Batra was someone else. He would take up tasks head-on and never have an ounce of fear or rethink any decision in life. Sidharth Malhotra played the part beautifully with the Punjabi accent and valour.

Because 'Yeh Dil Maange More' sir


Captain Vikram Batra's code message was 'Yeh Dil Maange More'. As filmy as it sounds, the phrase actually fit the Captain's attitude when it came to serving India.

To remember how every Indian soldier breathes to see his country above everything else


A quality which is overlooked by many but should never be, is the way an Indian soldier lives. He breathes every moment to see his country rise above everything else. He has a fighting spirit like no other and will do everything in his power to see the Indian flag where it belongs. In Shershaah, Captain Vikram Batra (Sidharth) took his final breath only after seeing the Indian flag hoisted instead of the Pakistan flag, during the Kargil war.

To know how Captain Vikram Batra would keep his promise


Shershaah has so many examples stating that Captain Vikram Batra was a man of his word. He made a promise to see his girlfriend Dimple happy and married her. Even more so, he made a promise to his friend to come back either after hoisting the flag or being wrapped in it. He kept his promise even after breathing his last.

To see what goes on in a warzone


A war is a tough situation. There is bloodshed, comrades injured and dying while the other army keeps attacking with rifles and grenades. The counterattack requires a similar tactic - rifles and grenades while going uninjured so the country remains in safe hands.

To salute the bravery of Captain Vikram Batra through all situations


As mentioned previously, there are very few brave hearts like Captain Vikram Batra. He is among those who wouldn't think twice before entering a tent and killing each soldier individually. Shershaah celebrates the spirit of this warrior, which is an important message to remember this Independence Day.
