Plot

Surya Sen (Abhishek Bachchan), known to all as Masterda, is a social activist in the pre-independence era. He is a teacher in the village school and a revolutionary. He lends support and corresponds regularly with the freedom fighters in the Chittagong cantonment of the Independence movement. The field designated as the football playground for the school is intruded by an army contingent. The students are terrorised and driven away to set up a military base. Along with fellow activists Pritilata Wadekar (Vishakha Singh) and Kalpana Dutta (Deepika Padukone), Masterda is able to inveigle the topographical information about the army base. Masterda also trains a few volunteer youngsters in the local guerrilla tactics to march an attack on the British services. On 18th April 1930, Masterda and his army of revolutionists claim authority by unfurling the Tricolour on the Police building. They escape to the hills but are hunted down by British forces. They split into several groups but are tracked down eventually. Some of the activists are imprisoned for treason against the Empire, while some are shot and tortured for information about Masterda. A young rebel, Haripada tries to avenge the death of his fellow freedom fighters by assassinating the Inspector who was the forefront of the search organisation of Masterda’s army. Eventually, the British succeed in finding Masterda. He is sentenced to death in court. However, torture of the most inhuman kind is inflicted on him before being hanged. Surya Sen finally releases his mortal shell as a glorious freedom fighter who preotected his nation’s integrity till his dying breath.
