This is an excellent tribute to the great martyr Bhagat Singh who was hanged by the British in 1931. If I am not mistaken, one of the story writers (BK Dutt) was Bhagat's comrade in the freedom struggle, and was sentenced to life for 'waging war against the King'in the trial that sent Bhagat, Rajguru and Sukhdev to the gallows. Manoj Kumar a.k.a. Bharat Kumar managed to play Bhagat without excessive melodrama. The music and lyrics are awesome. The song, "Sarfaroshii Ki tamanna" (penned by another martyr Ramprasad 'Bismil') has been sung by Rafi , and he has poured all his heart into it. If you understand the song, and the emotions behind it, you will be touched and awed. The measure of Bhagat Singh's grip on Indian people's perception and imagination can be ascertained by the fact that two more movies were made about him recently. IMHO, the one with Ajay Devgan did greater justice to the man, and his ideas.
