India, 1857. British Colonial rulers are plundering the country for all its worth, treating the locals unjustly and causing widespread resentment. Worst of all they are using the Indians as sepoys, the infantry of the army, to control and regulate the population.
After a hundred years of subjugation, India is awakening to the revolutionary prospect of change and self-rule. During a fierce battle in the Afghan wars of the mid century, Mangal (Aamir Khan), a heroic sepoy rescues his British commanding officer William Gordon (Toby Stephens). The event creates a strong friendship and binding loyalty between them that transcends consideration of rank and race.
The friendship is soon challenged, first by arrival of a charming and beautiful young aristocrat, and then by he introduction of controversial new gun cartridges among the troops.
The new cartridges require soldiers to bite through their greased casing, made of animal fat, and suspicion spreads that the British are ignoring religious beliefs in favour of cheap weapons, and polluting their Muslim and Hindu soldiers.
Mutiny breaks out with Mangal growing in stature to lead the Indian people to freedom.
One man rises against the empire. One spark can light a fire… One act of defiance can ignite a rebellion… One man can change history… Discover the birth of India’s independence.
Aamir Khan makes a powerful return to the screen in his first role since the Academy Award nominated “Lagaan”.
