The trailer, packed with striking visuals and gripping dialogues, begins with Randeep Hooda as Veer Savarkar walking in the Kaala Paani prison, setting the tone with an impactful voiceover, “Hum sabne padha hai ki BHARAT ko aazadi ahinsa se mili hai lekin yeh voh kahaani nahi hai” (We have all read that India attained freedom through non-violence, but this is not that story). It encapsulates the journey and struggles of Freedom Fighter Swatantrya Veer Savarkar in the fight for India’s independence. The trailer also showcases the historic moment when the two influential leaders, Mahatma Gandhi, and Veer Savarkar, met, highlighting the difference in their ideologies and approaches towards India's independence struggle. The trailer unravels the film's focus on the Indian armed revolution along with glimpses of its leaders and martyrs such as Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Madanlal Dhingra, Bhagat Singh and Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose while teasing with the politics of that period making the film most anticipated with the revelations it has in store with respect to modern Indian history, which the film promises to rewrite.

“I also didn’t know so much about Vinayak Damodar Savarkar when I was approached for this,” says Writer Director Hooda, who immerses himself in the role of Savarkar. “When I read up about him in great detail I was astounded by his life and his influence on other freedom fighters of that time. Why do we as a nation don’t know much about him infuriated me so much that I took it upon myself to tell his story to world as it was. This film is a tribute to his undying spirit and unwavering commitment to the nation and about the contribution of armed revolution in India’s fight for Independence which he influenced so much. We will break many myths surrounding Veer Savarkar and honor his legacy with an honest, no-holds-barred portrayal.”

Esteemed producer Anand Pandit who has been instrumental in ensuring the film was made is excited ahead of the release. Pandit says, "I have been deeply inspired by Veer Savarkar and his life. His was the idealist vision of India and his contribution to our freedom struggle is immense. This movie is my gift to the youth of the country.

Sandeep Singh said, "Vinayak Damodar Savarkar was a true patriot. But he continues to be misunderstood. Veer Savarkar's rebellious ways to take upon the British led people to believe that he was a terrorist. I would like them to watch the film as it will put their ill belief to rest. The film will make them see Savarkar in a new light with all factual information. History cannot be corrected and the events that have transpired in the past cannot be changed. I feel privileged and grateful to have got an opportunity to make a film on one of our greatest freedom fighter of his time."

Zee Studios, renowned for its commitment to quality cinema, shares, “As a studio, we are honored to be part of a film that delves into the complexities of Veer Savarkar’s journey, offering audiences a new perspective on this pivotal figure in Indian history. As a studio, we want to bring forth the hidden chapters of our glorious freedom struggle that spanned almost a century and bring the heroes to the forefront, from Manikarnika to Savarkar we are showcasing the armed resistance side of our independence movement that is often overlooked.”

Yogesh Rahar, reflecting on the film’s significance, emphasizes, “As producers, we are dedicated to presenting a compelling narrative that resonates with audiences, offering a new lens through which to view Veer Savarkar’s role in shaping India’s history.”
