Storyline

Vallabhai Patel was born in a wealthy Gujarat-based family and initially did not take part in the freedom struggle, scoffed at Mohandas Gandhi, and referred to him as a Social Worker. But when Mohandas gave a speech in Ahmedabad during 1915, Vallabhai changed his mind, decides to immerse himself in the freedom struggle, and created awareness in the entire state of Gujarat so much so that he was considered eligible for the position of the first Prime Minister of an independent India. But when the Congress Working Committee supported Jawarhal Nehru, Vallabhai bowed out amidst intense debate on the creation of Pakistan by Mohammad Ali Jinnah of the Muslim League. While Mohandas was not inclined to endorse any move to partition India, Mountbatten, the British Viceroy, along with Jawarharlal, Vallabhai, and others were in favor of partitioning India and allowing Jinnah to create two Pakistan, one each on the borders of Rajastan and Bengal respectively, in order to prevent any bloodshed. ...

I was very intrigued to watch a movie about the strong man of India, but found the movie to be a bit lackluster. I think this is due to the fact that the editing is so choppy and the film doesn't transition well from scene to scene. The film has its good moments and doesn't completely miss the mark, as there are some scenes that reveal a bit about the man, Vallabhai Patel, but other than that this is almost like a recitation of facts on film about his life, without much reference to why these scenarios are important. This isn't obtuse in the way that films sometimes willfully are to leave some things to the viewers imagination, but rather is just not all that well done. Anyway, if you're interested in Sardar Patel, it's worth a view, but it's no Legend of Bhaghat Singh, or Gandhi for sure.
