Hindustan zindabad tha, zindabad hai, aur zindabad rahega!‘ Remember when Sunny Deol as Tara Singh mouthed this powerful dialogue in the 2001 romantic period film, Gadar: Ek Prem Katha? Many cinephiles must have felt goosebumps while watching this movie on television. “Gadar was at least three times, if not four times, bigger than Lagaan. Gadar was a tsunami.” We are not claiming it, Aamir Khan, whose film Lagaan clashed with Gadar at the box office back then, recently said this. And rightly so.
