Ae Watan Mere Watan Review: Nothing Rousing About This Film – Sara Ali Khan’s Patriotic Film

Ae Watan Mere Watan Movie Reviews: Portraying a real-life figure on screen is a delicate task. Kannan Iyer’s Aw Watan Mere Watan, featuring Sara Ali Khan as Usha Mehta is one such example.

About Ae Watan Mere Watan Movie released on 21 march

Ae Watan Mere Watan Movie Review: It can be difficult to accurately portray a person’s life on screen. One of two things can be accomplished. The movie is about Usha Mehta a freedom fighter from The 1942 Quit India Movement. Her contribution to India’s fight for freedom from British control was significant. She started an underground radio station during the Quit India campaign to promote resistance and togetherness.

About Usha Mehta

Usha Mehta, who was born in Surat, Gujarat, on March 25, 1920, was greatly impacted by the nonviolent concepts of Satyagraha and Mahatma Gandhi.

Usha Mehta actively participated in the Quit India Movement in 1942 and collaborated closely with covert revolutionary organizations. She had a key role in organizing the covert “Congress Radio,” which during the Quit India Movement carried messages of resistance and demands for independence throughout India. At the time, the British government had placed severe restrictions on the media. Congress Radio developed into a crucial instrument for knowledge dissemination and inspiring people to take up arms for freedom.

Usha Mehta gained a great deal of respect and recognition for her involvement in the Indian independence movement. She persisted in her social and educational endeavours after independence, promoting Gandhian ideals and attempting to improve society.

On August 11, 2000, Usha Mehta departed from this life, leaving a legacy of bravery, devotion, and national service. In India’s liberation fight history, she is still regarded as a sacred figure.

About Movie:

Sara, who recently starred in the Homi Adajania murder mystery movie Murder Mubarak, adopts the role of the Khadi-clad heroine in this story, standing up for Swadesh and yelling “Karo Ya Maro” whenever the opportunity arises. Sparsh Srivastava’s Fahad and Abhay Verma’s Kaushik provide her with strong support. The three must battle their inner and outer demons in order to fulfil their dream of an independent India as they become entangled in the inner workings of Congress and the struggle for freedom, which is sparked by the horrors being carried out by the British Raj.

On paper, Ae Watan Mere Watan seems like a gripping war story, but the on-screen action isn’t particularly exciting. There’s a clear unhappiness throughout the story, and there’s no genuine feeling of urgency in the discourse. In the meantime, the actors do their best to deliver an engaging performance within the parameters of their limited role. Abhay and Sparsh (who we just saw in Laapata Ladies) play the ideal counterpoints to Sara Ali Khan’s Usha, who attempts to convey the passion of a young woman who frequently participates in liberation movements out of her hatred of the Raj. Sparsh deserves special recognition because he is already displaying flashes of brilliance.

Tragically, it appears that the rush of adrenaline arrives too little, too late. Iyer attempts to salvage his poorly written screenplay by turning Mehta’s story into a celebration of the relationship between a father and daughter who have grown apart. He also adds a touch of nationalism to the story by making references to heroes who have disappeared from the pages of history—a concept he calls “Gumnaam.” However, it’s unclear if this one-time watchable movie will be enough to save your time and attention. 

Overall Rating 2.5/5
