Lyrics: Javed Akthar
Bose - The Forgotten Hero, takes you through the last five years of the life of Subhash Chandra Bose that marked the turning point in India's struggle for independence from British Colonial rule. The highly controversial events including a daring escape, travel across Afghanistan in disguise, meeting Hitler in Germany, and ending in a mysterious plane crash. The film is divided into three chapters. The first chapter is about Netaji's great escape from Bengal to Kabul. The second chapter is about Netaji trying to contact and convince the Russians, Germans, Italians and Japanese. And the final chapter pertains to the fight by Netaji against the British. Shyam Benegal has once again excelled in bringing alive the life and times of the great revolutionary - Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. The visuals of course are the high points of this movie. A.R. Rahman's music is of standard. Sachin Khedekar does an excellent job. In the supporting cast, Rajpal Yadav and Divya Dutta stand out with competent performances. The film is worth a watch.
