Salman Khan's " Bharat " Movie Review. " Journey of a Man & A Nation Together "

Bharat is a 2019 Indian Hindi_ Language action drama film written and directed by Ali Abbas Zafar.

During the 1947 partition of India, Gautam Kumar and his family board a train to India with thousands of refugees to save themselves from the terrible riots .In the chaos  Gautam's young son , Bharat , accidentally loses his baby sister, Gudiya . Gautam stays behind to search for her , despite knowning the risk ,and tells his son to take his mother and two younger siblings to the Bharat's aunt's imported goods store.Before letting go , Gautam has Bharat promise him that Bharat will keep the family together in his place.

Salman Khan as Bharat  , Katrina Kaif as Kumud Raina , Tabu as Gudiya , Sunil Grover as Vilayti Khan , Disha Patani as Radha , Satish Kaushik as Naval Officer, Jackie Shroff as Gautam Kumar , Sonali Kulkarni as Janki Devi , Aasif Sheikh as Mehek's Husband , Nora Fathi as Suzan .

Based on the 2014 South Korean film "Ode to my Father " .The  films soundtrack was composed by Vishal _Shekhar, with lyrics written by Irshad Kamil . Cinematography by  Marcin Laskawiec , Edited by Rameshwar S. Bhagat. 

Bharat has been described by it's makers as one man's Life story unfolding parrallel to the journey of a Nation. The film's most moving scene comes early on when a family is separated during Partition ,and a young boy makes a promise to his father .

More Painful is watching a very Disha Patani paired opposite a trying to look very young Salman Khan in one of the early chapters  of the film. Or , Sonali Kulkarni , nine years younger than him , playing his mother. This might not seem like a big deal in the larger picture, but it's reflective of an old malaise that Bollywood hasn't been able to shake off yet.

Rating : 3 / 5 .
