A chronicle of the lives and events that led to the brave and epic last stand of the 21 soldiers of the 36th Sikh regiment of the British Indian Army against thousands of Afghani invaders in the September of 1897.
The Battle of Saragarhi was on 12 September 1897 between Sikh soldiers of the British Indian Army and Pashtun Orakzai tribesmen in the North-West Frontier Province (now Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan).
The British Indian contingent comprised 21 Sikh soldiers of the 36th Sikhs, who were stationed at an army post and were attacked by around 10,000 Afghans. The Sikhs, led by Havildar Ishar Singh, chose to fight to the death, in what is considered by some military historians as one of history’s greatest last-stands.
Currently it is unknown when it will be released outside of India.
