Earlier this week, we had made our readers aware that within just a few days of its release on the Amazon Prime Video OTT platform, Shoojit Sircar’s latest directorial film ‘Sardar Udham’ had made its way to the coveted IMDb Top 250 Indian movies list.
Not only that, but ‘Sardar Udham’ had also bagged the honors of becoming the top-ranked Indian film released in the year 2021 on IMDb, thereby surpassing acclaimed films such as ‘Shershaah’, ‘Sarpatta Parambarai’, and ‘Drishyam 2’, amongst others.
And now, ‘Sardar Udham’ has achieved yet another rare and glorious feat of becoming the highest-ranked Indian movie of all time as per the latest IMDb top-rated Indian movies list.
In doing that, ‘Sardar Udham’ has outranked on IMDb some of the finest Indian films such as ‘Nayakan’, ‘3 Idiots’, ‘Guide’, ‘Satya’, ‘Sholay’, ‘Lagaan’, ‘Chak De! India’, ‘Baahubali 2’, and ‘K.G.F’, to name a few. Currently, ‘Sardar Udham’ holds an impressive IMDb user rating of 9.2 based on more than 14000 votes.
The historical drama ‘Sardar Udham’ starring Vicky Kaushal in the titular role is based on the life of the Indian revolutionary Udham Singh, who had assassinated former lieutenant governor of Punjab Michael O’Dwyer in London. The assassination was done to avenge the mass killings of many Indians at the barbaric Jallianwala Bagh massacre that happened on 13th April 1919 in Amritsar.
Various aspects of the film including the lead performance by Vicky Kaushal, direction by Shoojit Sircar, cinematography, and production design, etc. are being praised by audiences and critics alike.
Besides assuming the mantle of becoming the highest-ranked film of all time on the IMDb top-rated Indian movies list, ‘Sardar Udham’ is also amongst the films shortlisted for India’s official entry for Oscars 2022 in the best international feature film category. With Sardar Udham’s top-notch filmmaking, we can certainly keep our hopes high this time.
