Released in the theaters of India, Saheed- the film portrays the life of the freedom fighter Bhagat Singh played by Bobby Deol along with Sunny Deol as Chandrashekhar Azad, Rahul Dev as Sukhdev and Vicky Ahuja as Rajguru. Directed by Guddu and backed by the skilled music director Dhonoa, the movie included a lot of talented and skilled actors and actresses in the supporting roles. The film, Saheed became the talk of the time, as a fire broke out in the set during the making of the movie and tried to stall the attempts involving a loss of crores of rupees.
The story in Saheed centered around the life of great Bhagat Singh, his philosophy and beliefs for freeing his motherland from the clutches of the British rule. In spite of the multi starring casting in Saheed along with the best possible performances of both the key and the supporting artists, the film failed to meet the expectation of the general public. Actually speaking, the movie was no doubt a great attempt, but it was not able to keep up the standards of the high publicity carried out before its release.
Actor Bobby Deol worked hard in bringing out the flavor of the great personality Bhagat Singh, who laid down his life for the country.
But somehow, his performance and also the performances of the other supporting casts failed to bloom due to the shortcomings in direction, screenplay and script. The songs in Saheed were simply wonderful with the rich melody by Dhonoa and poetic lyrics by Anand Raaj, though the scene settings in which the songs were placed suffered a few wrong turns affecting the overall presentation of the movie.
Saheed suffered another serious setback due to the inaccurate portrayal of a few events that were in no conformity with the facts. The historical events depicted in the movie were not presented in a sequential manner. The sequence problem in the movie, Saheed, created such incoherence in its presentation that it was a bit difficult to rectify, even with the matured acting of the star casts. The cinematography, graphics and screenplay were however worthy of praise.
The biggest thing about Saheed are the melodious songs, most of which became instant hits even before the time of its release. The fateful scene when Bhagat Singh was hanged along with Sukhdev and Rajguru however was skillfully played to bring out the pain of the tragic moment.
