The film Sardar Udham tells the story of an extraordinary young man whose love for his motherland and people drove him to dedicate his entire life to India’s freedom struggle. He is known to have started a revolution to avenge the Jallianwala Bagh massacre where the British army opened fire at unarmed Indians, killing and injuring more than 1,500 people in 1919 in Amritsar.
The Amazon Original Movie is backed by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar. Sardar Udham also stars Banita Sandhu and Amol Parashar in the lead roles. Amol will be seen playing the role of another freedom fighter, Bhagat Singh.
