This epic drama delves into concepts of the a protagonist's journey from religious hatred, to love, empathy and tolerance, with the theme of the partition of Bengal in the background. This is the story of Saket Ram, as narrated by his grandson. The movie takes place as Ram, a retired archeologist, lies on his deathbed, on 6 December 1999, the 7th anniversary of the destruction of Babri Mosque in Ayodhya, and travels back in time exploring concepts of love, hatred, religious extremism and fanaticism.

Continuity
Kamal's watch goes missing in one of the shots and magically returns in the very next shot as the car stops at a railway gate.
Trivia:
This was the first Indian film to feature a soundtrack performed by a full fledged symphony orchestra. It was performed by Laslo Kovaks of Budapest Symphonic Orchestra, Hungary.

The song "Raghupati Raghava Raja Ram" plays in the background of the film's title sequence. It's a Hindu devotional song but it is sung like a Mosque prayer call.

Shah Rukh Khan received only a wrist watch as his payment for the film.

Shah Rukh Khan's character was named Amjad Khan as a tribute to Kamal Haasan's relationship with actor Amjad Khan.
