it's Vinay Pathak who gets one of the most significant roles of his career. While an actor like Anupam Kher would have been apt, Pathak gives it his all. He rightly portrays the honesty and silent defiance of his character, especially in the crucial last scene.While the film does struggle with a slow pace and certain irrelevant characters and scenes that digress from the core subject, this biopic deserves to be seen.

There are valid sentiments expressed during the film. As we see the shocking ignorance and apathy of those who are meant to be custodians of our country and its history, we keep hearing these lines: is this the nation we fought so bitterly for? Were the British really better? But those thoughts are raised in the most banal way. Despite the news coverage, Gour Hari’s struggle continues. And so does ours, because the film is so listless and so lacking in drama, that it never manages to grab our interest from the get go. Nor hold it, as it drags on.

The dreariness of Gour Hari Dastaan is allayed somewhat by an array of cameos by fine character actors – Saurabh Shukla, Rajit Kapoor, Vikram Gokhale and Murali Sharma, among others. Owing to its undeniably relevant theme, Gour Hari Dastaan does have some archival value. If only it had more to offer, it would have come far closer to being the triumph that it – and its subject – deserved to be.
