The Legend of Bhagat Singh is an Indian historical biographical film
directed by Rajkumar Santoshi and released in 2002. Singh, who
witnessed the Jallianwala Bagh massacre as a child, was a socialist
revolutionary of the Hindustan Republic Association who fought for
Indian independence. The film features Ajay Devgn (pictured) as Singh,
Sushant Singh, D. Santosh and Akhilendra Mishra. The story and dialogue
were written by Santoshi and Piyush Mishra, respectively. The film was
released to generally positive reviews, with the direction, story,
screenplay, technical aspects and performances of Devgn and Sushant
receiving the most attention. Produced on a budget of
₹200–250 million (about US$4.15–5.18 million in 2002), the film
earned only ₹129.35 million at the box office. It went on to win two
National Film Awards – Best Feature Film in Hindi and Best Actor for
Devgn – and three Filmfare Awards from eight nominations.
