Amazon Original Series The Forgotten Army – Azaadi Ke Liye is created and directed by national award winning filmmaker Kabir Khan. The war epic drama is based on true events and narrates the journey of the extraordinary young brave men and women who formed a part of the Indian National Army (INA) and fought against the British for India’s Independence.
The Forgotten Army – Azaadi Ke Liye will launch on Amazon Prime Video across 200 countries and territories on the 24th of January, 2020.
The Forgotten Army – Azaadi Ke Liye, is based on the true story of Indian soldiers who marched towards the capital, with the war, cry 'Challo Dilli', to free their country from the reign of the British. The Indian National Army (INA), which was forged out of British defeat in Singapore during WWII, was led by the charismatic Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose and had the first-ever women infantry regiment anywhere in the world. While these soldiers (men and women) fought against all odds and against the British army to free India, their struggle and story somehow got lost and they became 'the forgotten army'. With the love story between two soldiers - Sodhi & Maya at the heart of it, the series raises several questions about identity, independence and the idea of the motherland and the cost of freedom. Freedom, that we often take for granted but the freedom that costs countless lives and sacrifices.
