This is the reason he decided to separate from the Congress Party. The British became weary of him, placed him under arrest, but when he started a hunger strike unto death, they let him go, but kept him under surveillance.

Trivia

The film was released all over India, except for Madhya Pradesh, as the cinema distributors in that region, facing losses from previous historical films, held the film as too controversial and risky to be shown in their halls. Ironically, Bose was re-elected Congress president in 1939 in Tripuri, in the eastern part of Madhya Pradesh. See more »
