Storyline

Chancellor Adolf Hitler assists Azad Hind Fauj, led by Subhas Chandra Bose, which include a group of Indians who are frustrated with the Gandhian manner of non-violence to compel the oppressive British to quit their country. Punjab-based Balbir Singh is one such member of the Fauj, who has left his wife, Amrita, and son, Veer, behind. Ironically, Amrita is a follower of Mohandas Gandhi, and patiently awaits her husband's return home. Mohandas writes to Adolf, addressing him as 'dear friend', imploring him to end the violence. The allies, which include America, Russia, Britain and France close in on the Germans, while Adolf, a little perturbed by defectors, but still in company of many loyal supporters, is determined to continue, and even makes preparations to wed his mistress of 12 years, Eva Braun. Meanwhile Balbir and the rest of the Fauj must risk their lives through treacherous territory, allied soldiers, and quite surprisingly - they themselves - when they end up bickering and ...

Totally ludicrous film if moderately entertaining
25 September 2011 | by (Buenos Aires, Argentina) – See all my reviews

This Indian movie is an absurd, ultra low budget unofficial remake of the German movie Downfall, about the last days of Hitler (despite the title, Gandhi appears only briefly in this film).

Since Britain came out very weakened after World War II and very soon had to give out her empire, I understand why some Indians might feel some indirect sympathy for Nazi Germany. But still, it's not clear to me why this remake was filmed, though it provides some amusing scenes in their ludicrousness (because it has some entertaining value, I did not give it a bottom rating).

None of the terrible actors looks German, which is quite obvious since they are all Indian. Some of the scenes in Downfall, especially those set in the Fuhrer Bunker, are copied almost verbatim in this film. And it is quite funny how a massive battle like the battle of Berlin (which resulted in 200,000 dead, 500,000 wounded, 500,000 prisoners) is acted with just a few extras. Or how outdoor scenes that are set in Europe were clearly filmed in India. Some viewers might be offended as well that the crimes of National Socialism are not mentioned in the movie, and Hitler is portrayed as an honorable patriotic German, a very angry guy but not an evil person (the scene where "Hitler" dictates his testament is outrageous in this respect). Also, I don't get why the actress playing Eva Braun speaks in English in this movie while the other characters speak in Hindi, is speaking English a sign of superficiality/snobbishness in India?
