Big budget biographical on the last five years
of nationalist leader Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel
(Rawal). The film continues the trend launched
by Attenborough’s Gandhi (1982) of
government-produced authoritative versions of

culminated in numerous Doordarshan
productions in the 50th anniversary of Indian
independence. The film’s original version was
scripted by Tendulkar, who later published his
script as an independent work.
