Excellent portrayal of a great man!
19 May 2000 | by xfactor3000See all my reviews

Raj Babbar's portrayal of Shaheed Udham Singh was remarkable to say the least! While watching the film you cannot help but notice how engulfed he was in the role. With a tremendous supporting star cast, this movie is sure to please anyone who is even remotely interested in the life of the man that some would argue was either the real reason behind India's independence, or the inspiration for others to follow in his steps to martyrdom during the British reign. What is also amazing is that a majority of the cast and crew refused to accept any kind of monetary gain for the film. This is truly a tribute to the one and only Shaheed Udham Singh.
