Udham Singh was born and brought in a Sikh family in Punjab, India, during the time when the British ruled India. Enraged at the massacre of over 2000 men, women, and children at the hands of Brigardier General Edward Harry Dwyer (Tom Alter) in Jallianwalla, (now known in History books as the Jallianwalla Baug Massacre) Udham Singh swears vengeance. He sets about creating obstacles for the British, and is soon on wanted lists by the authorities, on one occasion he is shielded by a courtesan, Noor Jehan (Juhi Chawla). In order to achieve his vengenace, he travels to the United Kingdom, befriends the local Indians, as well as Irish Freedom Fighter, Irene Rose Palmer (Charleen Carswell). He finally kills Dwyer during a presentation. He is quickly apprehended, and jailed. He refuses to cooperate with the authorities, nor is he willing to accept that he is mentally incapable. His trial is a mockery and travesty of justice. He is ordered to be hung, and the press are forbidden to publish ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Udham Singh has been inspiration.
18 April 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

yes the way he has been presented is lovely. And true. I like the way he killed the O'Dyer.

Udham Singh said that he had a statement to make. He put on a pair of glasses, whispered to the warders, and produced a sheet of paper and began to read. Facing the Judge, he said:

"I say down with British Imperialism. You say India does not have peace. We have only slavery. Generations of so called civilization has brought for us everything filthy and degrading known to the human race. All you have to do is read your own history. If you have any human decency about you, you should die with shame. The brutality and blood thirsty way in which the so called intellectuals, who call themselves the rulers of civilization in the world are of bastard blood…"

Atkinson: "I am not going to listen to a political speech."

U Singh: "You asked me if I had anything to say."

Atkinson: "If you have anything to relevant to this case, say it."

U Singh: "I say this - this is my case. I was going to protest and this is what I am protesting."(He brandished the sheet of papers at the judge)

Atkinson: "Is it written in English?"

U Singh: "Yes."

Atkinson: "I shall understand it much better if you will hand it to me to read."

U Singh: "No, I want it for myself, not for you."

Atkinson: "I can not make out what you are saying."

U Singh: "You will understand what I am reading now. Do you want me to read it or not?"

Atkinson: "I shall understand much more of it if you give it to me to read."

U Singh: "Who will read it?"

Atkinson: "I will read it."

U Singh: "I want the jury and the whole lot to read it."(McLure reminded the judge that under section six of the Emergency Powers Act, Udham Singh's speech could not be reported or heard in the camera.)

Atkinson: "You may take it that nothing will be published of what you say."

U Singh: "Eh?"

Atkinson: "You must stick to the point, but go on."

U Singh: "I did it to protest and this is what I mean. I want to explain. The jury was misled about the address. I shall read it now. Shall I read it now?"

Atkinson: "Yes."

U Singh: "I shall like to read the lot, you know."

Atkinson: "You are only entitled to say why the death sentence should not be passed upon you. You are not to entitle to make a political speech."

U Singh: (Shouting):"I DO NOT CARE ABOUT SENTENCE OF DEATH. IT MEANS NOTHING AT ALL. I DO NOT CARE ABOUT DYING OR ANYTHING." (Thumping the rail of the dock, he exclaimed): "WE ARE SUFFERING FROM THE British EMPIRE. (He continued more quietly): "I am not afraid to die. I am proud to die. I want to help my native land, and I hope when I have gone, that in my place will come others of my countrymen to drive the dirty dogs. I am standing before an English jury in an English court. You people go to India and when you come back you are given prizes and put into the House of Commons, but when we come to England we are put to death. In my case I do not care about it, but when you dirty dogs come to India - the intellectuals they call themselves, the rulers - they are of bastard blood caste, and they order machine guns to fire on Indian students without hesitation… Machine guns on the streets of India now down thousands of poor women and children wherever your so-called flag of democracy and Christianity flies. I have nothing against the public at all. I have more English friends in England than I do in India. I have nothing against the public. I have great sympathy with the workers of England, but I am against the dirty British Government. You people are suffering the same as I am suffering through those dirty dogs and mad beasts. India is only slavery. Killing, mutilating and destroying. We know what is going on in India, people do not read about it in the press. Hundreds of thousands of people being killed by your dirty dogs…"

Atkinson: "I am not going to any more, you can put this paper away. I am going to pass sentence upon you."

U Singh: "You do not want to listen any more because you are tired of my speech, eh? I have a lot to say yet."

Atkinson: "I am not going to hear any more of that."

U Singh: "You asked me if I had anything to say."

Atkinson: "I am not going to hear…"

U Singh: "You people are dirty. You don't want to hear from us about what you are doing in India. Beasts, Beasts, Beasts…" The judge made the proclamation of the sentence of death on Udham Singh. When the sentence was passed, thrusting his glasses back into his pocket,

Udham Singh thumped his clenched fist on the rail of the dock and shouted three words in Hindustani: "INQLAB, INQLAB, INQLAB" and then: "DOWN WITH British IMPERIALISM. DOWN WITH British DIRTY DOGS! AND LONG LIVE India!"
