A pre-independence India faces internal issues of untouchability during the freedom struggle. In the midst of this climate, the revolutionary Bhagat Singh desires and insists to have his last meal prepared only by Bhoga, a sweeper at the Lahore jail.
The “why” of this film has always been very clear – Bhoga’s story not only conveys a message about an important social issue but also talks about taking charge in your own life. It’s a tale of honest emotion and truth which the youth needs to know as people were and still are in so many ways bigotted on the basis of colour, caste, creed and social status. We have all felt inadequate in some way or the other, just like Bhoga and not all of us were lucky enough to have a Bhagat. This story will compel people to discuss the film afterwards. The definition of art is that it won’t leave you alone – it demands to be debated. The film speaks to every person living in these times who has felt inferior at some point or the other, even though it isn’t set in this time. Movies aren’t reflective of our time just because they are made in our time. Sometimes there are observations that are truly defining — how the story not only fits and reflects larger cultural and social trends but also defines the trajectory of the evolution of Bhoga and in a way, all of us — is a reason to make the movie now. The creator of this project, Ketkee, also found it unique that as a 23 year old, this subject came to her through some cosmic connection with Bhagat, the 23 year old, compelling her to tell his story about friendship, sacrifice & a powerful need of rising to the occasion.
