Twenty-one Sikh soldiers manning a lookout post faced with an attack by a 10,000-strong Afghan contingent. Where’s the time for song and dance, you ask? Well, there surely can be some before the action breaks out. And so the makers of Kesari released their first song, 'Sanu Kehndi', today.

The lyrics are in Punjabi, so it’s a bit of a dampener for non-Punjabi listeners. But if the film is about 21 Sikh soldiers from the British Indian army, then these men would naturally sing in their native language.

It appears as though the song takes places before the Afghans launch their attack. Penned by Kumaar, 'Sanu Kehndi' is based on the theme of troops away from home for long periods reminiscing about their beloved.

The song begins as one of the soldiers looks morose and plays a sad tune. Havildar Ishar Singh (Akshay Kumar) changes the glum mood to a joyous one as the men break into song and dance.

The song is likely to appeal more to Punjabi listeners, but the visuals and the music make it worth watching. Akshay Kumar shows us some really quirky dance moves accompanied by funny expressions. The burly, bearded men are simply enjoying themselves. And towards the end they are able to cheer up their despondent mate.

The visuals are full of fun and the song is backed by an entertaining score by Tanishk Bagchi. And yes, for a change, this is no remix.

Singer Romy Khan pitches in with another powerful and cheerful performance. He is backed by Brijesh Shandilya. All along, Khan is the voice of Akshay Kumar, but there is a moment in the antara where Shandiliya becomes the star's voice.

The film's trailer was fairly impressive and the first song is enjoyable. Watch the fun-filled song below and let us know if you are keen to watch Kesari in the theatres. Kesari is set to be released on 21 March.
