The movie begins at present day with Saketh Ram, an 89 year old South Indian Brahmin who is dying. The scene reverts back to the past as Saketh remembers the 1940's, when he and his good friend, Amjad Ali Khan were archaeologists working together under their boss, Mortimer Wheeler, in Mohanjodaro (Indus River Valley Civilization) in Karachi. Saketh Ram's wife is raped and killed during direct action day riots in Calcutta. He is convinced that Mahatma Gandhi is responsible for all the problems happening in the country. He sets out to kill him. He soon joins fanatical Hindus and loses sense of himself, falling victim to the chaos and religious hatred around him. He has a change of heart only when he falls prey to a bunch of Muslims, where he also meets old chum Amjad Khan, an ardent Gandhi admirer. At the climax, Saketh Ram is prepared to murder Mahatma Gandhi but is stopped by Amjad. He later realizes that without Gandhi, India would be destroyed. He goes up to Gandhi and begs for forgiveness. The movie ends with the old Saketh Ram, slowly dying on his death bed
