Indian national movement succeeded in throwing away the yoke of colonialism on 15thAugust 1947. The leader of this movement Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was murdered by Nathuram Godse on 30th January 1948. It was propagated that Gandhi was assassinated as he was pressurizing the Government to give 55 corers to Pakistan. Godse also alleged that Gandhi is against Hindus and Hindu nation; Gandhi is pro Pakistan, it is due to him that the Muslims got bold and were able to form Pakistan.
This film elaborates that the murder of Father of the Nation was a clash between two types of political ideologies. On one side was the National movement, struggling for Independence of the country from the clutches of British colonialist. It was based on the all inclusive plural values and upheld the diversity of the country. People of all religions participated in this movement. On other side were the communal streams, Muslim League, and Hindu Mahasabha-RSS, which based their nationalism on Islam (Islamic Nation) or Hinduism (Hindu Rashtra) respectively. The murder of Mahatma was the assault of communalists on the concept of Secular-democratic Indian Nationalism. The film is based on the events as they unfolded towards freedom and tragedy of partition. It contrasts the political ideology of Gandhi on one hand Godse on the other.
