The heroic tale of the Chapekar brothers has echoed through India’s history. This web series will transport you back in time, to the famine struck city of Pune in the State of Maharashtra in late 1896. Following a deadly outbreak of plague in Pune, the Colonial government decided to put together a special committee to curb the epidemic. Headed by W.C. Rand, the SPC (Special Plague Committee) was charged with the task of taking control of the situation. What begun as standard preventive measures, went on to become barbaric acts of extermination, inciting outrage and igniting the spirit of revolution amongst the hearts of the youth, like the Chapekar brothers.
Directed by Ankur Kakatar, starring Bhushan Pradhan, Kshitish Dat, Shivaji Vaichal, Anand Ingale and Sunil Barve; the series globally premieres on ZEE5 this Independence Day on 15th August 2019.
