Storyline

Bhagat was born in British India during the year 1908. As a child he witnessed numerous atrocities committed on fellow Indians by their British rulers, who came to trade under the guise of the East India Company, but ended up controlling most of the nation, and permitting tyrants such as General Dyer to massacre thousands of innocent men, women and children in Jallianwala Baug. As a child he was impressed by Mohandas K.

Great movie for the patriots
5 November 2002 | by zaheeralviSee all my reviews

I think a great movie on the history with great acting, direction, music, Photography, effects, sets, clothes and over all the story. The movie has got that touch in it which really makes a person feel that what has happened with the actual person, is shown in the movie very exactly, and specially when the information is coming from the brother of the person. I think this movie is really worth watching and in fact I liked it so much that I bought the DVD of this movie after watching it in the theater.
