Storyline

It is the year 1857 in India, a year that Sardar Ajit Singh, his wife, their children, including son, Bhagat, and their parents will never forget, for it was the day his brother, Kishan, sang out against the British, was arrested, escaped from prison, & has never been heard of again. This does have an impact on young Bhagat Singh's mind, so much so that when he grows up he joins the freedom fighting movement, being headed by Chandrashekar Azad. It is then that an unarmed freedom fighter, protesting the Simon Commission, is killed by Police. Bhagat, Chandrashekar, Shivram Rajguru, Sukhdev, and Jaygopal avenge this death by killing the Assistant of Commissioner Saunders. When a major police hunt is announced, they flee, especially Bhagat, as he has been identified as the Sikh with the turban. Bhagat takes off his turban, shaves off his beard, and continues to be active in the freedom movement. A historical meeting at Tughlak Fort is organized and all freedom fighters from every corner ...

Ultimate Patriotic movie
18 March 2004 | by (Derby,England) – See all my reviews

What can I say, this is the ultimate patriotic movie. The story revolves around India's favourite patriot Bhagat Singh. Manoj Kumar has made very detailed life of Bhagat. The script,the acting of all the cast is superb especially by Pran as the prisoner.

I was twelve the first time I saw this film and I recently watched it again. I thought it has stood the test of time.

The songs are absolutely brilliant and at times very emotional and you felt part of the freedom fighters. Songs like 'Pagri Sambal Jatta','Rang de basanti chola'and'Ae Watan', just fantastic. I really enjoyed this film as you can imagine.
