'Rang De Basanti' is an intricately woven contemporary drama that delves into the collective psyche of the youth at different periods in Indian history – during the freedom struggle before independence from the British, and present-day.
A young woman from England comes to India to make a documentary about her grandfather's diary which was written in the 1920s about the Indian Independence with five young men.
As she gets involved in the process of recruiting the cast for her documentary, she befriends a group of people and becomes embroiled in their trials and triumphs.
Ultimately, she sparks an extraordinary sequence of events that eerily mirror historical events. Will she succeed in completing her documentary? How will she be influenced by the events in the lives of the cast members, whom she befriends in the process of filming her documentary?
