A young Sardar Udham was left deeply scarred by the Jallianwala Bagh massacre. He escaped into the mountains of Afghanistan, reaching London in1933-34. There, Udham spent the most decisive 6 years of his life, re-igniting the revolution. On 13th March, 1940, 21yrs since carrying the unhealed wound, Udham Singh assassinated Michael O’Dwyer, the man at the helm of affairs in Punjab, April 1919.
Excellent film with little publicity on the terrible Jallianwala Bagh massacre and Sardar Udham who witnessed one of the most terrible moments of British imperialism. In a field dominated by Gandhi mythology the world of militant fighters against the British gets sidelined, including the deep sixing here by the Oscar world.
