Storyline

On January 26, 1950, India became an Independent Sovereign Democratic Republic with its own Constitution. The Constitution of Independent India that came into being that day was the culmination of a journey that had begun during the first war of Independence in 1857 when Indian soldiers (rebelling against British colonial rule) attempted to frame their own Constitution. Later, during the freedom movement of the early 20th century, a seminal attempt to create a Constitution was made under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi. Eventually, a Constituent Assembly consisting of about 300 men and women representing various shades of political opinion and different parts of the country congregated in the Central Hall of Parliament on December 9, 1946. Their task was to frame a Constitution for a free India. The Assembly took close to three years to create the Constitution that defines and guides our nation today. The story of making Independent India's Constitution is full of drama and ... Written by Anonymous

Making of the Indian Constitution
14 August 2018 | by tanujpoddarSee all my reviews

Master storyteller, Shyam Benegal, has directed a masterpiece 10 hour long documentary divided into 10 parts commissioned by Rajya Sabha TV. Each episode takes a topic in the journey of framing the constitution and illuminates the differing views brought together by the assembly of leaders from the freedom movement, academicians and representatives of all provinces/states and communities. The first couple of episode begin with setting the context around how the framing of the constitution was an indispensable aspect of transfer of power from British and how partition further complicated the matters. Then we go through a journey of setting the the objectives of the constitution, it's directive principles, fundamental rights, safeguarding of minorities, designing of the administrative machinery through to its coming into effect. Swara Bhaskar ably anchors the audiences attention through out this journey. Several well known artist play the role of prominent leaders and generate interest through their characterization. As apt for the content, the language is quite parliamentarian and writing is crisp and well edited, also filled with some instances of conversational humor. Given the depth of the subject, the content is well paced, giving viewers ample time to assimilate the information. If you follow through the journey closely, the applause given to Ambedkar as he approaches the dais to address the completion of the drafting process, might give you goosebumps.
