Born in a prominent Bengali family, Subhas had dedicated much of his younger years by being actively involved in ridding the British from India. For this purpose he joined hands with stalwarts such as Jawaharlal Nehru and Mohandas Gandhi, but expressed his frustration, especially with Gandhi's slowgan and painstaking way of trying to win over the enemy with love. This is the reason he decided to separate from the Congress Party. The British became weary of him, placed him under arrest, but when he started a hunger strike unto death, they let him go, but kept him under surveillance. Subhas eluded the police, under the guise of Pathan Mohammad Ziauddin, crossed the Indian border in Afghanistan so that he could enter Russia and form an Indian Army to oust the British.

Hours before the film's premier in Calcutta, five researchers submitted a petition was submitted to the Calcutta High Court seeking to remove any controversial issues seen in the film. These issues were the use of the word "forgotten" in the film's title and the scenes that showed Bose as married to an Austrian woman. In 2002, these same researchers had sent a notice to director Benegal requesting him not to show Bose's death in a 1945 plane crash. The same thing had been done in this case, but this time the researchers threatened to go to court if their requests were not granted. Benegal himself defended his film in court, and the petition was rejected. See more »
This is a film based on the life of Subhash Chandra Bose who does not find much mention in the history books. This film is a wonderful presentation of events with the mature acting of actors like Sachin Khadekar, Sonu Sood. Wonderful dialogues and fine presentation of events. This was realistic in approach and modern in outlook. Great work.
