Director: Ashok Sharan | Producer: Ashok Sharan
Focus Years: 2004 | Country: India
This film is based on the biography of the great legendary tribal freedom fighter Birsa Munda.
One of the lesser-known aspects of our fight against British rule is that of the tribal uprisings which constituted an important part of the defiance of the colonial regime. Birsa Munda was an outstanding representative of one such movement in late 19th century in Jharkhand State, who initiated a unique phase of our freedom struggle. Many such revolutions erupted against the Britishers. India's first war of independence of 1857, had already sowed the seeds of the freedom struggle which had far reaching implications in the years to come. The feature film Ulgulan-Ek Kranti was shot after 10 years of in-depth research. The film was shot in the real spots where Birsa's life and activities were associated.
