The film takes inspiration from the events that took place during the Non-Cooperation Movement led by Mahatma Gandhi in 1920. The Chauri Chaura incident took place on 4 February 1922.
The police beat the protestors, and in turn, they set the Chauri Chaur police station on fire. Mahatma Gandhi stopped the nationwide Non-Cooperation movement. However, the British government arrested many freedom fighters and announced capital punishment for many.
The film takes inspiration from a real-life incident held on 4 February 1922 at Chauri Chaura, in Gorakhpur District of United Provinces (presently Uttar Pradesh).
Mahatma Gandhi (Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi) started a nationwide Non-cooperation movement. People joined them from all over the country, and the movement became one of the most significant agitations against the Britishers.
On 4 February 1922, an abundance gathered at Chauri Chaura, supporting the Non-Cooperation movement using non-violent methods. They challenged oppressive government regulatory measures intending to attain Swaraj (home rule).
The police came to Chauri Chaura and started firing on the protesters. In retaliation, the demonstrators attacked the Chaur Chauri Police Station and set it on fire. The incident led to the death of many police personnel and civilians.
Mahatma Gandhi halted the Non-Cooperation Movement on the national level on 12 February 1922 as a direct result of the incident. Despite the suspension of the Non-Cooperation movement by Mahatma Gandhi, the British colonial authorities arrested many demonstrators and announced capital punishment for nineteen (19) and life imprisonment for fourteen (14) demonstrators.
Bhagwan Ahir (played by Ravi Kishan in the film), who used to work as a soldier in the British government, left the job and voluntarily participated in the Non-Cooperation movement. On 2 February 1922, two days before the Chaura Chauri incident, while Bhagwan Ahir was protesting against high food prices and liquor sales at Gauri Bazaar, some police officials beat the protestors, arrested many leaders, and put them in Chaura Chauri Police Station.
In response to this, approximately 2,000 to 2,500 protesters assembled and began marching towards the market lane at Chauri Chaura on 4 February 1922. Police started firing to frighten and disperse the crowd, and the situation got out of control.
In retaliation, the demonstrators attacked the Chaur Chauri Police Station and set it on fire. The incident led to the death of many police personnel and civilians too.
Later British government gave life imprisonment and capital punishment to many of the arrested protestors. Later Madan Mohan Malviya (played by Ravi Shankar Khare) challenged the judgment in the Allahabad High Court with the help of Baba Raghav Das (played by Aazad in the film).
