This patriotic tale revolves around a newspaper reporter who creates a fictitious character called Azad, and exploits an ordinary man for few rupees to pose as him. Azad is a man who is fighting against the corrupt politicians, while the newspaper reporter prints imaginary stories in his name to improve the circulation of her newspaper. People take him for real and he becomes a powerful leader of the common folk.
One day the paper prints a letter in his name that he is going to end his life fighting corruption. This puts the ordinary man in a fix. He knows that at this juncture he can't refute the accuracy of all those stories. He also realizes that he is the sole hope of millions. Will Azad truly end his life or expose the scam?
