Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri was the second Prime Minister of India. He brought ‘The Green Revolution,’ ‘The White Revolution’ and developed the ‘Peaceful Nuclear Program’ with Dr. Homi Bhabha. His slogan “Jai Jawan Jai Kisaan” run through the veins of every Indian, till date. He died mysteriously in hours after signing the Tashkent Agreement, a Peace Treaty between India and Pakistan after the Indo-Pak war 1965. Claimed of ‘HEARTATTACK’ his body was brought India, wrapped in tricolor, swollen and bleeding from cuts. The clouds of suspicions hinted ASSASSINATION rather than a HEARTATTACK. No post-mortem, no investigation. His story was erased from history as his death a mystery!

After a four year of thorough research and filing 25 RTI’s, filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri created this ingenious political thriller, awakening #TheRightToTruth movement.

But stealing the thunder is the young National Award-winning actress Shweta Basu Prasad, portraying the journey of an honest journalist Raagini Phule.

The film now a case-study at IIM Ahmedabad, was invited for special screening by Rashtrapati Bhavan, Headquarters of RSS organization, National Sports Club of India; being admired nationally and internationally by all age-groups, mostly the youth of India.
