By Yogesh Mishra

Movie starts with an introduction of our great Indian martyr Chandrashekhar Azad who is a great inspiration for Indian youth. The story of Rashtraputra is highly inspired by the life and works of Chandrashekhar Azad. Perhaps this would be the first film in the history of Indian cinema which will give insights about life and times of Chandrashekhar Azad. 

Story is about an orphan Aazaad (character played by Aazaad), a child who was found near the statue of Martyr Chandrashekhar Azad in Allahabad. Since he was found at Azad’s statue so he names himself as an Aazaad and strongly follows the principals of Chandrashekhar Azad. He runs a garage with some of his friends and partners in his life's mission. Aazaad starts a mission to destroy the empire of an illegal drugs supplier Nepali (Manish Chaudhary) who wants to destroy Indian youth with his illegal activities in the country. Aazaad strongly follows the principals of martyr Chandrashekhar Azad in this mission. Unlike Azad, even he did something which can be considered as an illegal and unconstitutional but cannot be considered against the country. During his mission, Aazaad meets a reporter Anushka Bhaskar (Anushka) who runs Aazaad’s interview on her TV channel. Because of this TV interview, Nepali easily reaches to Aazaad. After some of the twists and turning points finally Aazaad accomplishes his mission and thus story meets to an expected ending. 

The flavour of patriotism can be seen in the movie. Although story belongs to the current time but director strongly relates this story with Azad’s principal of those era. The performance of Manish Chaudhary and Zakir Hussain have greater impact in the movie. Even rest of the artists have justified their roles.

Rashtraputra can be described as a great motivational movie with high voltage drama and entertainment values for the youth as well as the enlightened audience of current generation. It can be recommended to see at least once.
