Synopsis

Bollywood drama directed by Rakesh Omprakash Mehra. A young London based film-maker chances upon the diaries of her grandfather, who served in the British police force in India during the freedom struggle. Excited about these memoirs, she makes plans to shoot a film about the Indian revolutionaries mentioned in the diaries. Travelling to Delhi, she casts a group of five friends to play the pivotal roles of the revolutionaries. However, the five youngsters initially refuse to be part of the project, as they don't identify with the characters from the past; they would rather party than be patriots. In the film, 1930s British India and the India of today run parallel and intersect with each other at crucial points. However, as the film reaches its resolution, the line between past and present blurs.
