Singh escapes from Lahore by dressing in Western guise his trademark hat and moustache and posing as a wealthy pro-Brit Indian. Despite the moving of the storyline in a typical action-thriller style, the movie scores at places. So taken in is he by the freedom movement, that he even buries sticks in the ground, because he thinks they will grow into more rifles to fight the British rulers. It looks as if the writer has taken the audience for granted, perhaps feeling that the viewer knows the complete story of the great freedom fighter minutely, and also of all those people who were associated with India's struggle for independence. This actually slows down the pace and tends to drag the narrative a bit and do not seem to prop up the film at all.
Bhagat Singh, who was an eye-witness to the entire event, vows to take revenge and with the help of his friends -- Azad, Rajguru and Sukhdev plots to kill Scott. The latter is added at the drop of a hat. Screenplay, Anjum Rajabali, Piyush Mishra. Even the dialogues Sanjay Masoom lack fire. Besides, the jail and courtroom sequences are far from exciting. Technically and production-value wise, the movie is good but I would have been happier had the director paid proper attention to the sensitivity and depth of the plot which is a golden chapter of India's struggle for independence. In Western markets, both are of curio interest only.
Screenplay, Sutanu Gupta, Sanjay Masoom. Neither do full justice to the legend, though both movies have their individual strengths. If this film had been made in the west sowing the same seeds of hatred that we see in this film of the East there would be a great deal of outrage indeed. Amrita Singh as his mother, Divya Dutta as Durga Bhabhi and Suresh Oberai as the jailer have done well. The most impressive song of this movie - Desnu Challo, Desh Maangta Hai Qurbaaniyaan has been picturized on him only.
On the plus side, firstly, it's Bobby Deol who has played the role of his lifetime and infused life into the role of the immortal revolutionary. In jail, Singh organizes protests and a hunger strike — and finally has to be dealt with. He goes to the massacre site and fills his lunch box with the blood stained soil in remembrance of the carnage committed by the British. After being tortured in prison for months, he is finally sentenced and hanged to death on 23rd March 1931; a day earlier than the sentenced date, and his body quickly disposed off and cremated. Growing into a college-attending adult does not distract Bhagat Singh from his goal. Action director Guddu Dhanoa is a past master at action and explosions, but for that special feel of a 'historical touch', a far more 'into it' director was required. With: The Legend of Bhagat Singh With: Ajay Devgan, Sushant Singh, Santosh, Farida Jalal, Amrita Rao, Akhilendra Mishra, Raj Babbar, Mukesh Tiwari, Jonathan Ryan, Gil Alon.
Also as per the history , the hanging too was accurate as the scene , in reality , took place somewhat close to 8 'o' clock , and in the movie too, the scene takes place at the exact time. Amrita Singh, seen on the big screen after a hiatus, makes her presence felt. In Lahore, Lala Lajpatrai leads a peaceful march in protest against the commission. This film is the type of filthy propaganda that gets people killed. They seem to be sidetracked completely.
The dance moves are as intricate as you've ever scene Rai dance before, and she is backed by an arsenal of well-wishing women from Singh's household who dance around her, echo her sentiments and bless her with their love and support. After some time, the death of Lala Laajpatrai due to getting beaten by sticks while opposing the Simon Commission, sparked the feelings in the hearts of Bhagat Singh and others to seek vengeance from the responsible British officer - Malcom Scott. Aishwarya Rai as the fiancée of Bhagat Singh is another disappointment. His introductory sequence ï¿½ when he squeezes an eve-teaser ï¿½ is sure to be greeted with claps and cheers. This film is a 1 out of 10! The story is nothing but the biography of Bhagat Singh, the son of Sardaar Kishan Singh and nephew of Sardaar Ajeet Singh who devoted their entire lives to make their motherland, i.
Pagadi Sambhal Jatta, Sarfaroshi Ki Tamanna and Mera Rang De Basanti Chola. A movie like this really boils your blood so hard that you just want to go out there and take action with big guns and go after those zamindaars. However the movie impresses in the first half due to the sequences pertaining to Sardaar Ajeet Singh and Shaheed Kartaar Singh Saraaba. Thanking the users, Theirs Sincerely, Animesh At first i thought that this would be another story about the independence of the two nations pakistan and India but how wrong was i it is an absolutely fantastic film that really makes you proud of the fact that there were people like Baghat Singh who would fight in the name of freedom so that we could benefit. Skilled in directing masala action-thrillers only, director Guddu Dhanoa could not grasp the sensitivity of the plot and the movie could not do justice to the personality of the great revolutionary and his invaluable sacrifice. His sharp mind, though very young, is full of curiosity and reasoning. It is rare for someone in the Bollywood film to show up for an item number but end up carrying the entire film on their back and Aishwarya does just this with this one song and dance.
Though it is a non-violent protest, the police chief, Scott, orders a lathi charge on the crowd. Mistakenly they killed another officer - Saunders. At college, he befriends agitators Sukhdev and Rajguru who are eventually to be hanged alongside him , and all three join the Hindustani Republican Assn. Director Guddu Dhanoa takes on the mammoth task of directing the Sunny-Bobby Deol Goliath. A revolutionary who shook the dictatorial British government.
