Yugandhar (1993)

  • LanguageHindi

Yugandhar is a story of 126 villages and thousands of people of those villages, who loved their land and it was their love for land for which they put the foundation of "Parvati Dam" But people like Mahajan Kasturi Lala, S.P. Balram Singh and Collector Mathur along with one Gora Thakur grab their lands by selling them false dreams about development and progress of the people and their villages. 

Krishna a simple villager stands up against them and makes the innocent villagers realise their rights for their lands. They have as much-rights as fishes on water, birds on sky and flowers on land and the one who sows the beeds of progess only he has the rights to the fruits of development and progress and not the person who sells false dreams of progress. 

The thought of Krishna's philosophy is shared by his brother Balu, friends Bala Darshan and his beloved Rohini, who spread his thoughts to every villager, every village who joins hands with Krishna to continue his fight for people rights. 

SAAM, DAAM, DHAND, BHED are the four weapons used by Chanakya to fight, which these four dream sellers use to fight against Krishna and his villagers, but they do not realise that you can kill a person by these four weapons but you cannot kill or destroy his thoughts, his philosophy and it is these thoughts, philosophy which gives rise to person like Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela. 

Yugandhar is not only a story it is a philosophy of a person who rises to fight not for himself but for his people's rights, for their lands. Yugandhar is a story of a person who fights for injustice to his fellow beings, his villages, his country.
Yugandhar is a story of a person his philosophy his thoughts, on his progress of his people, village and his nation. 

A person who is instrumental in the progress, development of his people, his village his country is called Yugandhar.
