About the trailer

The trailer of Swatantrya Veer Savarkar begins with an officer describing him as one of the ‘most dangerous man’ he has ever met. That is because in one meeting he had the British officer convinced that he was in the wrong. As an impassioned voice for the motherland, he is seen unionising people and inspiring them to join the movement.

Ankita Lokhande is seen in the role of his wife, and makes a brief appearance in the trailer where she warns Saavarkar that crossing the river on the other side might bring bad luck for them. The trailer then brings viewers into the chapter of his life when he was held captive in jail. For the first time, someone has been sentenced for two lifetimes in prison. “God bestowed me with one life but the judge gave me two," he says in return.
