Traversing through lifetimes, this patriotic saga evocatively depicts the defiant struggles of a young man, who is ever-willing to sacrifice his life for the sake of his country and fight injustice against all odds.
This exquisitely crafted drama delves into the life of Amarchandra: who lives a poor lifestyle in British India along with his parents, Baba Thakur, and a sister. His father works as a guard with the British Army, which is commandeered locally by George. When Governor Jackson and his daughter, Diana, visit the region, Amarchandra launches a protest and also leads villagers to a meeting that is being addressed by Mohandas Gandhi, much to his father's chagrin.
Nevertheless, Amarchandra continues with his protests, and even humiliates Jackson. Then Jackson orders additional men and ammunition via a train from Delhi to deal with Amarchandra, who finds out and decides to sabotage and blow up the train. Little does he know that he will soon be betrayed by one of his own men, Bahadur, and not only he, but his father, as well as his sweetheart, Swarnamukhi, will all be killed.
Years later in an independent India, Amarchandra will be re-born as Ashok, an unemployed, middle-classed, slacker and trouble-maker, who lands a job with TV24 as a reporter, and will soon be pitted against the corrupt and seemingly invincible 80 year old Bahadur, who now calls himself Vijay Kumar, and is soon to be the country's Prime Minister. Will Ashok be victorious this time around?
