What is The Legend of Bhagat Singh about?

Bhagat was born in British India during the year 1908. As a child he witnessed numerous atrocities committed on fellow Indians by their British rulers, who came to trade under the guise of the East India Company, but ended up controlling most of the nation, and permitting tyrants such as General Dyer to massacre thousands of innocent men, women and children in Jallianwala Baug. As a child he was impressed by Mohandas K. Gandhi, especially his call to launch the non-cooperation movement, which led to thousands of people burning British-made clothing, giving up schools, & college studies, and government jobs - only to be let down by Gandhi himself when he called off the movement. Undaunted, Bhagat decided to be a revolutionary, starting with getting into petty fights, then as a grown-up joining the Hindustan Republic Association. When Lala Lajpat Rai was beaten to death by the police, Bhagat, along with Shivram Rajguru, Sukhdev, and others daringly carried out the assassination of a police officer named Saunders, which eventually led to Bhagat's arrest, where he was lodged in a cell, tortured and beaten mercilessly. His father, Kishan, paid Rs.60,000/- and bailed him out, so that he could get him to run a diary-farm and get married to a girl from Manavali. But being a revolutionary was in Bhagat's blood, and when the British proposed the Trade Disputes and Public Safety Bills, he would initiate the bombing in the Indian Parliament Building, along with Batukeshwar Dutt, be arrested, and tried in an open court. This is where Bhagat launched his much-publicized revolution, and became popular with the masses, especially the younger generation, laborers, and farmers, so much so that his popularity rivaled that of Gandhi himself. Even in prison, Bhagat made headline news when he and other prisoners undertook a 63 day fast unto death to improve the conditions of Indian freedom-fighter prisoners. Then the British re-opened the Saunders' murder case, which led to death sentences being imposed on Bhagat, Shivram, and Sukhdev. The entire nation rose up in protest, including the Congress party - with the ball being in Gandhi's court - for he was due to sign the Irwing Pact, and Indians hoped that he would use this as a bargaining chip to save the lives of the heroic trio. Will Gandhi rise up to the occasion and save the trio - so that they could pave the way for a modern and independent India, not just a country ruled by the British with a dominant status - an India free of communal hatred, injustice, corruption, and fundamentalism, or will Gandhi end up disappointing Bhagat all over again?

Where to watch The Legend of Bhagat Singh


Streaming on Amazon Prime Video

Amazon Prime Video is one of the most popular streaming platforms in the UK, with a broad range of TV Shows, Movies and documentaries. Prime has also recently moved in to live sports, giving customers the option of streaming Premier League football and Rugby Union Internationals.

Got a question about Amazon Prime?

Amazon pretty much built its popularity in the UK around shows like The Grand Tour, Vikings and Good Omens. But the addition of Live sports like the Premier League, International Rugby and Tennis mean it has become much more than that.
Amazon Prime can be added to your bill whether you’re a Sky, BT or Virgin customer.
If you’re a sports fan then Amazon wins hands down. Both providers have a fantastic selection of TV Shows and Films, and in this respect, it’s tough to separate them!

Benefits

  • Short and Long term contracts
  • Ultra 4K option
  • Stream on multiple devices at once
  • Stream TV Series, Movies and Live Sports

Streaming on Netflix

Netflix is one of the true originals when it comes to online streaming. They have a huge catalogue of TV Shows, Movies, Kids TV and Documentaries that include both classic and original content.

Got a question about Netflix?

Netflix doesn’t reveal the size of its ever-changing library, but it’s estimated to have around 6,000 titles available to stream. It’s one of the most popular streaming providers in the UK thanks to series such as Sex Education, The Crown and Bridgerton.
If you’re a Sky, BT or Virgin customer, you can easily add Netflix to your existing monthly bill. Like standard Netflix customers, you’re free to cancel the service whenever you want.
It could be argued that Netflix has a little more for the whole family. Kids TV and movie selections, in particular, are very strong compared to Amazon. However, Netflix does not have live sports like its American counterpart.
