Vicky Kaushal has been receiving huge praise for portraying the first Indian field Marshal Sam Manekshaw in a convincing manner. Apart from industry celebs, Sam Manekshaw's daughter Maja Daruwala said to the Indian Express that she moved to tears after watching the film. She said at the event, "They have made the film to make the country proud of whatever it was. But, the time that I tear up, every time, I've seen the film twice now and I teared up both times, is the last two seconds of the film when you turn to the audience and you're smiling. That just kills me every time." The video was shared by a fan page on Twitter. Take a look:November 27, 2023

Sam Bahadur opened to stellar reviews. In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee wrote, "One of the most striking aspects of Sam Bahadur is that it eschews flag-waving militarism while celebrating the bravery of India's soldiers. It treads gently and thoughtfully through the life-threatening minefields that infantrymen have to negotiate in the line of duty. There are battle scenes and punchlines aplenty in the film, but they do not overshadow the less flashy components with which the lively biopic is constructed."
