Inspired from true life events, this intensely patriotic movie depicts the Chittagong uprising of 1930, which marked a turning point in the Indian freedom struggle against the tyrannical British rule. Circa 1930 in Chittagong, male teenagers are asked by British soldiers to play football elsewhere. Since there is no other ground, they decide to approach widower school-master Surjya Sen, and join his band of freedom fighters. Since Gandhi had announced a ban of violence for one year, Surjya patiently waits, then raises Rs.18000/-, with this amount he procures guns, four vehicles and 25 bicycles, and inducts two women, Pritilata, and Kalpana Dutta in his team. Their plan is to surprise the British by disabling telecommunications and transportation, liberating jailed comrades, taking guns and ammunition from the armory, and holding Britishers hostage at the European Club. Before they can carry out their plan, both women are instructed by their respective families to re-locate to Calcutta. Surjya, nevertheless decides to simultaneously carry out the attacks but his group is unable to hold any hostages due to the holiday of Good Friday, and the raid on the armory gets them rifles but no ammunition. While they do succeed in cutting off communications and transportation, however, the British do recover and devise plans to capture the group. With no food nor shelter, little or no ammunition, how long will Surjya and his group elude the determined British?

Trivia:
This exquisitely crafted movie was a surprising failure at the box office, and the producers, the PVR group mentioned later that they couldn't even get back 10% of the total film's budget. Despite the shock and disappointment at its failure in the commercial arena, the movie is considered a cult classic, and the production house was happy that they lost only on giving an excellent film, not a poor one.

The title track has been sung by the pupils from Suresh Wadkar's music academy. Malayalam playback singer Ranjini Jose made her Bollywood debut through the song "Naiyn Tere".

The film was shot mostly in Goa along with portions in Mumbai.

This patriotic movie is based on the book 'Do And Die' by Manini Chatterjee, based on the Chittagong Uprising of 1930.
