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

Manoj Kumar's "Kranti" is the epic story of the year after 1825 when Indians began their long struggle to throw off the burden of a foreign rule. It is the story of Sanga (Dilip Kumar), the sea pirate who intercepted British ships that brought ammunition to suppress the Indians and who often carried away prisoners who were no better than slaves. It is the story of Bharat (Manoj Kumar), a young man who considered Sanga to be his idol and who organized an underground movement to fight the British on two fronts - the fight against the aliens and the fight against treacherous Indian princes. It is the story of Meeaxi (Hema Malini), the beautiful princess of mighty state who joins the freedom fighters, and gives her heart to a man who was the enemy of her state. It is the story of Sureeli (Parveen Babi), a rustic village girl who fights for the freedom of the Land, but eventually finds her place in the decadent palace where song and dance create a false illusion of splendor while poor Indians groan under the burden of foreign rule. It is the story of Karim Khan (Shatrughan Sinha), the military aide of Jhansi Ki Rani who joins the forces of Bharat. It is the story of Shakti (Shashi Kapoor), the Commander of the State forces, who does his duty to suppress the insurgents but knows a great and brave revolutionary when he meets one. It is also the story of palace intrigues when Shambhu Singh (Prem Chopra) help Shamsher Singh (Pradeep Kumar) to kill his own brother so that he can occupy the throne of the state. "Kranti" is a flaming story of India's proudest revolution - it is a story of India's bravery and weaknesses - it is a story of a mighty battle for freedom that was fought on land and sea, in forests and palaces, battle in which many gives their lives and mothers sacrificed their children so that the torch of freedom once lit should never, never be extinguished.
