Storyline

In post-independent India, Maria has been hospitalized in Goa and is told that she needs to have surgery. She asks the surgeon to wait until her friends join her and then recollects her life as a Satyagrahi with the Goa Liberation Struggle in order to compel the Portuguese to quit. She has telegrams sent out to six of her comrades - namely Bihar-based Anwar Ali Anwar; Maharashtra-based Shakaram Shinde; Tamil Nadu-based Mahadevan; West Bengal-based Shabut Sanyal; Punjab-based Jogender Nath; and Uttar Pradesh-based Ram Bhagat Sharma. She does not know that acrimony - on the lines of religion, caste, and language - has created divisions between not only her group but also amongst all Hindustanis. She then recollects how the six had partnered in order to hoist the Hindustani Tiranga on seven different Police Chowkis and monuments in occupied Goa and had undergone strenuous combat training. While being successful six times in their venture, the entire group ends up in custody, separated, ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

The birth of a Superstar
25 September 2003 | by (England) – See all my reviews

The film was a debut for Amitabh Bachchan, where he plays a muslim poet cum freedome fighter. His character in the movie is shown to be the cowardice type who tries to run a mile from violence, the movie will be certainly a pleasure for all those Bachchan fans to see him in his very first screen appearance in a Black and White flick.

The story is pretty decent, 7 indians unite to free Goa from Portuguese soldiers. However screenplay certainly needed a little more attention in order for movie to move abit faster than a snails pace (in certain portions of the movie). everyone plays thier parts pretty well. Over all i would rate the movie a 5.5/10
