One of the most important events in Indian history is the Ghadar movement, a revolt against British rule and fight for India’s independence. Many brave freedom fighters laid down their lives. One such freedom fighter and a son of Punjab is Kartar Singh Sarabha, who is loved & remembered for his leadership role of the Ghadar movement.
Kavi Raz, after his successful Hollywood film, ‘The Black Prince’ is now offering us another epic Punjabi film titled ‘Sarabha- Cry for Freedom’ which takes us through his journey that inspired generations to come.
The makers released the poster of the film on Kartar Singh Sarabha’s 104th martyrdom day. Written and directed by Kavi Raz, the film stars Japtej Singh, Mukul Dev, Kavi Raz, Malkeet Rauni, Mahabir Bhullar, Jaspinder Cheema, Kanwar Grewal, Puneet and Jasbir Jassi in prominent roles.
On the occasion of the poster release, director Kavi Raz said, “Kartar Singh Sarabha is an icon who inspired legends like Shaheed Bhagat Singh. His leadership, courage, bravery and sacrifice cannot be forgotten. The fire that burned in his soul spread across India after his death, leading many others to take up the cause of our motherland’s freedom from the shackles of British slavery.
He further added, “I want the generation of today to know him, his struggle, his passion and how he left a very comfortable life in the USA and became the leader of Ghadar movement. Although he was hanged at a ripe age of just nineteen, he had left an everlasting mark on our history. I hope the film is perceived by the audience with the same love and passion that we put into making it.”
The producers of the film are Arvind Singla, Kuldeep Sharma, Veepasha Kashyap and Dr. Sarbjit Hundal.
The film will release worldwide on 21st February 2020, the same date when a Ghadar movement started across India.
