Storyline

The British did not give India its independence on a silver platter. Independence was the result of a long and bloody battle. "Kranti" is the story of how two men became soldiers in that battle. Sangha is a honest and dedicated employee in the kingdom of Ramgarh, owing allegiance and loyalty to no one except Raja Laxman Singh. When Laxman Singh conditionally permits the British to use the port for trading purposes, Sangha finds out that the British are taking out gold and jewelery and bringing in ammunition, he puts a stop to this. He goes to report this outrage to Laxman Singh, only to find him stabbed to death and he charged with treason and of killing him. Sentenced to death, he escapes and forms a group of revolutionaries who have only one motto - drive the British out of India. This group multiplies into several armies, all united with one slogan - an Independent India. Which is also known as Kranti. Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

fantastic story, great songs
19 September 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Great film with great songs. Have been humming the songs since watching it - check out www.dishant.com.

Saw it when i was young, and bought back a couple of memories, vaguely remember the film but you can never forget the wonderful songs.

The song, 'Zindagi ki na tote lari' was fantastic and very emotional, especially where the fantastic Hema Malini and Manoj Kumar are on the top deck, all wet and crying their eyes out, the picturisation was amazing and you really felt for both characters.

Why did Praveen Babi have such a short role in the film? Definitely recommend the film to others.
