On March 23,1931, in the dead of the night, three bodies are smuggled out of Lahore Central Jail via the back gate. They are taken to an isolated place, chopped up into pieces and surreptitiously cremated by British officers. The next day, this incident creates a national uproar throughout India. Who was this man who struck such fear in the powerful British government that they had to destroy his dead body in the darkness? Who was this man whose memory invokes such powerful emotions even 71 years after his death? He was Bhagat Singh - India's most beloved son. An extraordinary young man who happily became a martyr for his country at the tender age of 23; a revolutionary who single-handedly shook up the powerful British government, exposing their true barbaric nature. A man for whom victory lay in his own death. This is his story, The Legend of Bhagat Singh. This film takes us on the journey of Bhagat Singh's remarkable life. His searing anguish as a 12-year-old at the horrific Jallianwala massacre, his whole-hearted participation in Gandhi's non-cooperation movement of 1921, his disillusionment after Gandhi summarily calls it off, his obsessive search as a teenager for a strategy that would free his country from the inhuman yoke of British Rule. All the while we never lose touch with the heart of Bhagat – as the beloved son who has to leave his family, as the young romantic who forces himself to break the heart of the girl who loves him, who waits for him until the end. The film sees his growth as a freedom-warrior from his abrasive first meeting with the legendary Chandrashekhar Azad to his own rise as the foremost leader of Azad's revolutionary party. As an activist who believed in direct action, Bhagat Singh responds to the public battering of Lala Lajpat Rai with a gun in his hand. But with that one assassination, he finds himself alienated from his own countrymen. Isolated and frustrated. How can he make his voice reach the Indian masses? The answer - a final charge against the British government. A charge that begins with the outrageous bomb explosion in the national assembly and ends two years later with the entire nation rallying behind Bhagat Singh, echoing his call of "Long Live Revolution". It is here that Bhagat Singh's true heroism is revealed. Alone, jailed, physically helpless and isolated, Bhagat Singh nonetheless manages to bring the world's biggest power to its knees. His single-handed battle with the British rulers inspires courage in the Indian youth and gives a nation its self-respect back. Even if it means he has to pay for this fight with his life. Truly, for this great revolutionary, his death was his victory.
