Movie had many locations of Udham Singh and to amalgamate each and every scene can be difficult. Editing and many other factors have made this film Beautiful. Starting scene where Udham Singh is released from the prison of Punjab to when he is in Russia, then in U.S.S.A”A carpet covered with snow”.
The editing of all these scenes with respect to their location in the movie was completely satisfying, till the last scene where Bhagat Singh and Udham Singh is shown running in the farm.
Cinematography was the prime thing in the movie which i like the most. The early morning scene in Punjab will sometime make you feel the essence of smog on your face in winters. Director had chosen the dark theme with the reflection of light to show the dark, revenge side of Udham Singh. Before the climax scene when Udham narrates why he killed General O. Dwyer, You will see a dark colour in which a reflection of light coming over Udham’s face. The amalgamation of these little things have made us to connect with the story in a more authentic way.
