Here's the teaser of Randeep Hooda's Swatantra Veer Savarkar

The teaser of Randeep Hooda starrer and debut directorial Swatantra Veer Savarkar, based on the life of VD Savarkar, was unveiled on Sunday, on the occasion of the freedom fighter and Hindutva ideologue's 140th birth anniversary.

The film has been co-written by Randeep along with Utkarsh Naithani.

The teaser poses questions on Gandhi’s ideology and Randeep, in a voiceover, states that Gandhi was not wrong, but had he not been stubborn on his principles of non-violence, India would have been independent 35 years earlier. We see him as Savarkar, in glasses, being taken over by the British to jail. The voiceover further states that few participated in the freedom struggle and the rest “just wanted to gain political mileage in the garb of the fight for independence.”

The teaser goes on to label Savarkar as the man who inspired Bhagat Singh, Subhash Chandra Bose, and the armed revolution against the British. Drawing a parallel between Ramayana and India’s fight for independence, Randeep’s Savarkar says in conclusion, “When it is about freedom, then it is Ravan Raj or British Raj dehan (it's burning down) is inevitable.” The video ends with the hashtag 'Who Killed His Story?'

Here's the video:

Launching the film's teaser, Hooda said, "Savarkar led an incredible life, and as I learned more about him while researching my film, I have come to admire him tremendously. So, it gives me immense pleasure to share a sneak peek into our film on his 140th birth anniversary."

The film is produced by Anand Pandit.
