The series is an ode and a tribute to Subhash Chandra Bose for which the creator has been showered with great responses and appreciations over the ideas and screenplay of the series.
In the year 1945, on August 08, it was believed that Bose died in a plane crash. The presumption later, found out to be false when the Bose family receives a telegram sent by Mahatma Gandhi, told not to perform his last rites. Then, a hypothesis is made about his disappearance while some characters put forward their views on Bose’s being vanished in the past once, and how there lies a probability of him returning back to the pavilion.
