Vicky Kaushal has established a reputation as an actor who can be counted on to deliver in any capacity. He has played various roles in between, from Masaan.
In which he played a guy who lit funeral pyres, to those of a special ops soldier carrying out a surgical strike over the border, and has consistently received high praise for them.
Vicky Kaushal in Manmarziyan
What exactly does love mean? Is it purely animalistic attraction, where you can’t wait to undress your partner and hop into bed whenever you have a moment to yourself, or does it exist on a deeper level where it’s crucial for the hearts to beat in unison as well as the bodies, not just the bodies?
Is what you do for your loved ones more essential than what you say to them? It’s a difficult question to resolve, and each person has their own interpretation and strategy. Vicky (Vicky Kaushal) and Rumi (Taapsee Pannu) are a deeply in love couple who believe in rutting like bunnies whenever time and location allow.
But is there a deeper connection between them? When they are once caught in the act, that question begins to haunt them.
Vicky, who has a severe aversion to commitment, does not perceive them as a married couple. Rumi recognizes that one cannot live in love alone and want to settle down for the sake of love.
Vicky Kaushal brought out the innate lunacy of his character, which prioritizes the present over the future and is all about living in the moment. There is no denying his anguish, his suffering, or his nearly drug-addicted desire for Rumi.
Vicky Kaushal in Raazi
This spy thriller is set against the backdrop of the war of 1971. Both sides have hot tempers. The Mukti Bahini, which is attempting to transform East Pakistan into Bangladesh, is receiving covert training and supplies from the Indians.
Naturally, Pakistan does not want this to take place and is making its own covert plans to prepare for a full-scale conflict with India. Sehmat, a Kashmiri girl played by Alia Bhatt, is forced by her Indian-loyal father, Hidayat (Rajit Kapur), a double agent, to wed Pakistani army officer Iqbal Syed (Vicky Kaushal).
Vicky Kaushal rose to the occasion as a gentleman who loves her with quiet dignity, despite the fact that it was more of Alia’s film as she played an Indian spy planted in Pakistan. Even after he learns of her betrayal, the love remains unwavering.
When he discovered her deceit, his eyes shouted volumes, but he still had a love for her in his heart. You genuinely feel bad for him in the movie because they make a lovely couple and do have some chemistry together.
Some claim that the most overt sign of love is lust. It represents love in its purest form. This was precisely what the four storylines in this episodic movie examined.
Vicky performed in the narrative that Karan Johar directed. Young actors Vicky Kaushal and Kiara Advani are the main characters, and Neha Dhupia plays a somewhat lecherous librarian.
The movie emphasizes that women shouldn’t be judged negatively if they desire sexual satisfaction because it is also a right. Even though it is the lightest of all the movies and receives complete Karan Johar treatment, the issues it raises are just as important.
Vicky Kaushal portrayed an unconventional role as a spouse who has no idea how to make love to a woman. And once he realizes that, he apologizes for his youth. Everything was done tastefully without using unnecessary theatrics.
Vicky Kaushal in Sanju
Sanju hasn’t held back in his portrayal of real-life actor and buddy Sanjay Dutt. Make no mistake: it’s all there: drugs, sex, AK-56, RDX. Rajkumar Hirani has made every episode of this reexamination of the life of one of our most contentious movie stars look as genuine as it possibly could.
Life is all about making decisions, and for Dutt, those decisions are represented by the imaginary figures God (Jim Sarbh) and Kamlesh (Vicky Kaushal). They become fast friends, but one introduces him to the world’s vices while the other urges him also consider its virtues.
Vicky Kaushal’s portrayal of the geeky Kamlesh is indeed a revelation. Kamlesh’s suffering is evident when he observes his friend’s decline in front of him.
He is so good that he even overlooks the fact that Sanju succeeded in getting the girl he intended to marry. One of Vicky’s most outstanding performances to date.
Uri: The Surgical Strike
The movie opens with a surgical strike carried out by special force commandos headed by Major Vihaan Shergill (Vicky Kaushal) against North-East militants sheltering Myanmar.
It is a fictionalized portrayal of the army’s surgical strike in P.O.K. They had carried out a heinous assault on an infantry convoy of the Indian Army a few days prior in Manipur’s Chandel district.
We find out that Vihaan wishes to leave the army for his mother, who has Alzheimer’s disease in its last stages. To be closer to his mother, he is instead relocated to Delhi to work as a pen pusher. When militants from Pakistan attack Uri, his brother-in-law Karan (Mohit Raina), a fellow major in the army, is slain.
In order to spearhead a counterattack across the border, a heartbroken Vihaan requests authorization. The heart of the movie is how he approaches it.
Vicky Kaushal’s commitment is what makes you want to invest in the movie. In the midst of the chaos, he acts methodically to glory and emerges victorious. He has once again demonstrated that you could cast him in any type of character in any type of movie, and he will give it his all.
