NOT a gem but a good watch
13 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

The movie is a rundown of the actions of Chapekar brothers, nothing more, nothing less. Though the screenplay follows the chronological order of the Historical events, the presentation is patchy and insipid(probably,a result of the shoestring budget). The brutal and cunning British policies, the readiness of sacrifice, the undue hatred for the Maharashtrian Brahmins, the backdrop of old Pune and the culture and relevant aspects are depicted well. Personally, I prefer such movies that stick to the Historical events without any 'masala' or melodrama ! The actors, from the theatrical background, have played their respective roles to perfection. The background score is average but some traditional/folk lines are sung naturally midst the movie.

Though not a gem, a valuable addition in the (already scarce) movies about the revolutionary Indians.
