The movie shows the fight in what used to be the state of Hyderabad after India got its freedom on August 15, 1947. The British Hyderabad State was still ruled by the Nizam for another year, while the rest of the country enjoyed freedom and independence. People were ruled over by the cruel Razakars during this time. The movie shows the horrible things the Nizams and Razakars did out of religious fanaticism and the brave things the heroes did to fight them.
