Product Description

On the 23rd of March, 1931, in the dead of the night, three bodies are smuggled out of Lahore Central Jail via the back gate. They're 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. Later that day, a crowd of angry political activists gherao Mahatma Gandhi and accuse him of colluding in the execution of their hero.

Who was that man who's corpse had struck such fear in the powerful British government that they had to destroy it in the darkness? Who was it because of whom Mahatma Gandhi was accused of dishonesty? Who was that man who's memory invokes such powerful passions 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 revolutonary 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, his legend. The Legend of Bhagat Singh.

About the Actor

Ajay Devgan was born as Vishal Veeru Devgan in New Delhi on 2nd April 1969. He is a Punjabi and the son of Veeru Devgan, a stunt director and Veena Devgan who is known to have produced a film. His uncle is film director Anil Devgan. He was a student of Silver Beach High School and Mithibai College. A couple of years after plunging into Bollywood, he married actress Kajol in 1999 and they had a daughter Nysa in 2003. 1991-1995 Devgan made his debut in Phool Aur Kante opposite Madhoo, winning the Filmfare Best Debut Award. Most of his films, at the start of his career were packed with a generous amount of dishum-dishum, like Jigar and Vijaypath. Mahesh Bhatts Naajayaz with Juhi Chawla won him his first nomination for the Filmfare Best Actor Award. 1996-2000 In 1997, he moved away from action with the romcom hit Ishq, which also starred Aamir Khan, Juhi Chawla and Kajol. In 1998, he appeared in the Bollywood remake of French Kiss - Pyaar Tho Hona Hi Tha with Kajol. This fell in line among some of the most popular films that year. The same year saw the release of Mahesh Bhatts Zakhm, which looked at communal issues in India. The film won several awards including the National Film Award for Devgans performance. His most talked about film in 1999 was Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam in which he played Vanraj, a man who tries to help his wife get back together with her lover. He was nominated for the Filmfare Best Actor Award. He produced and acted in Raju Chacha in 2000, along with Kajol. However the film made an average hit at the box office.

This is clearly one of my absolutely favourite films ever! It is extremely well-made and Santoshi isn't afraid of portraying history as he sees it. The film is very informative as well as exciting.

I cannot think of a single thing to say negatively about this film. It is just awesome!

Note: The film is presented in Hindi with English subtitles.

Background/Synopsis: Bhagat Singh was an ardent follower of Gandhi in his youth but as he grew and witnessed the continued harsh treatment of his people at the hands of the occupying British he turned his back on the philosophy of passive resistance. This film tells the story of his transformation from his early pro Gandhi years to his defiance of British rule by meeting violence with more violence. His popularity eventually rivaled that of Gandhi and many would make the argument that if not for Bhagat Singh the British may never have embraced Gandhi's demands for fear of the alternative embodied in Bhagat Singh.

Critique: Some movies entertain, some inform. If one film succeeds in doing both than it is unquestionably a very good film. Sometimes a film rises to even greater heights by fusing the medium and the message in such a way as to give birth to an even higher art form. What is that special something I speak of? It's inspiration.

The 2002 release `The Legend of Bhagat Singh' starring Ajay Devjan as the revolutionary Indian freedom fighter and martyr is truly an inspirational work bringing to life tumultuous times in the history of India and providing the audience with an iconic, unforgettable portrait of a man of great conviction and courage. The film excels on every level; excellent production values, superb acting, well conceived story development and memorable soundtrack. However even with all the excellence one finds in this film there is still one thing that outshines everything else, the performance of Ajay Devjan.

I ordered this movie to watch with my 13 year old. I had always believed Ghandi was the only pioneer of India's revolution until I heard about Baghat Singh. I had trouble at first because it was in hindi. I had to change the setting with my DVD remote and then it changed to english subtitles. Great movie. What a story.

The Legend of Bhagat Singh is a wonderful representation of India, in the middle of its struggle to throw the British out. As with any with movie with a historical basis, I was a nervous that Bollywood would use artistic license to cheapen the story. In fact, the director, Santoshi shows in details how Bhagat came to develop his views of the British with very little outside distraction.

Ajay Devgan is excellent as a the title character, bringing the necessary passion that only he can provide with his steel-y stare. Of particular note is the scene showing the freedom fighters telling Gandhi to stop working within the British framework. Westerners can see the parallel between Gandhi's nonviolent methods and the more revolutionary Bhagat Singh with Martin Luther King's methods vs Malcolm X "by any means necessary" credo.

As the last reviewer mentioned, it's a great reference for those interested in India's independence struggle and it truly reinvigorated my interest in Indian history.

See this movie if you enjoy eastern history, but won't go for the traditional Bollywood flick.

Stunning, absolutely stunning. Whenever one witnesses a film like 'Legend of Bhagat Singh', one can only just stare and mentally get back to the earlier days. It's hard to find a single flaw throughout the film as the whole cast and crew join hands to give a stunning presentation of the events that took place in 1928 British-India. Ajay Devgan is absolutely brilliant, he gives a performance of a lifetime! Devgan effortlessly gets in the shoes of the legendary patriotic hero and takes us on a ride through history. An excellent performance from almost the whole cast and above all Sushant Singh who gives his very best as 'Sukhdev'. Top notch performances along with a beautiful score is not all you will get, there is much more here that makes the film much more than just a biographical epic.

In the list of top Biography epics like 'Joan of Arc - The Messenger', 'Queen Margot' and many more, 'The Legend of Bhagat Singh' definitely hits the list as well. It's a true masterpiece.
