Terrorist-turned-filmmaker Hemen Gupta directs this passionate celebration of the underground nationalistic terrorism movement in colonial Bengal, adapted from a story by Manoj Bose. The film opens with the Swadeshi movement in 1905, which was sparked by Britain's proposed partitioning of the western state of Bengal. As depicted in the film, protestors boycotted and burned imported clothes while participating in mass rallies. Included in the fray are Bhuli Naai's three main characters: Mahananda, Ajit, and Anandakishore. After a brutal police crackdown, the group's leader, Masterda, flees when Mahananda betrays his comrades to the police. Later, Ajit is arrested while Anandakishore is killed. The former eventually escapes from jail, kills his betrayer, and gets sentenced to the gallows.
