“The throwback to a time when the radio incited people rather than willed them into numb obedience, as well as the depiction of the Congress party as the country’s greatest hope rather than its biggest enemy, are unmistakable.”

Ae Watan Mere Watan‘s retro imagery isn’t limited to antiquated machinery, erstwhile trams and vintage cars; it also falls back on old fashioned plot tropes like the classic burkha disguise to escape the cops.

Bollywood biopics have a tendency to shuffle chronologies, romanticise or overstate the truth. Ae Watan Mere Watan isn’t above fictionalising Usha Mehta’s story or depicting the Brits like one-note grimacing geezers (Alexx O’Nell). Yet, before it slumps into a needless overdrive of dramatic excesses and stagy hysterics, there’s a sincere desire to capture the early 1940s.”
