The voice which inspired youths for India’s independence is so very special yet the youngsters show less inclination towards such patriotism due to urge of pursuing of living modern lifestyle.
We always speak of blending tradition and history with modernity but in this race we forget giving regards to such inspiration.

The movie shows the emotional side of the iron man, a fathers and husbands mind cries at death of child and wife, however strong public leader he is.
Many facets of Tilak’s vision revealed with the movie, the first draft proposing konkan railway was tabled by him in 1897.
The atrocity of epidemic plague which once ate people life, is somewhere now taken a new form, an epidemic of corruption and wrong school thoughts is eating the society.
The tyranny under commissioner rand was inhumane.
Books wrote a much milder form of the same.

Person who underwent legal prosecution sentence of 6 years just for sake of people, little did people remember his glory.
The passion about work which Tilak explains to his son is a must watch, every father should educate their child with this values.
Never get defeated, dejected the struggle never ends and we can start always with new enthusiasm is the biggest learning we take back with us.
The movie speaks vividly about Tilaks Saga, and makes us feel that Tilak is born again in this era, his principles are rejuvenated and will surely give a stimulus to the society to change it to better.
Will make you actually live the Tilak Era.
For those who want to learn history, and are having constraints in reading books, for them its a 133 minutes capsule, which very effectively touches our heart and educates us to revolt against unjust.
