In what appears to be a significant addition to the filmic landscape, promising an evocative portrayal of India’s historic struggle for freedom, ‘Ae Watan Mere Watan’, a film helmed by director Kannan Iyer, is preparing for its global release. The narrative features the vivacious Sara Ali Khan shouldering the lead role in a story that celebrates the tenacity and spirit of real-life heroes who contributed to India’s march toward independence. The ensemble cast includes distinguished actors such as Sachin Khedekar, Abhay Verma, Sparsh Shrivastav, Alexx O’ Neil, Anand Tiwari, and a special appearance by the captivating Emraan Hashmi.

A prestigious Dharmatic Entertainment Production undertaking, the vigor behind the movie comes from the support of producers Karan Johar, Apoorva Mehta, and Somen Mishra. The film is anticipated to stir the hearts of viewers when it makes its much-awaited premiere on the streaming giant Prime Video. ‘Ae Watan Mere Watan’ is slated to be accessible in India and in 240 countries and territories globally when it airs on March 21, offering an international platform for the captivating historical drama.

The promotional revelations leading up to the premiere included a gripping Instagram motion picture post that featured the charged voice of Sara Ali Khan as Usha, the character she portrays, who fervently calls for unity against the British Raj through the medium of secretive radio transmissions. The storyline of ‘Ae Watan Mere Watan’, drafted by Darab Farooqui and Kannan Iyer, narrates a fictional account centered on an underground radio hub spearheaded by a valiant young woman.

This thrilling historical drama judiciously borrows from the awe-inspiring journey of the unsung freedom fighter Usha Mehta. It shines a light not only on recognized national figures but also on the unnamed youthful revolutionaries whose gallantry and patriotism significantly influenced the battle for liberation from colonial rule. ‘Ae Watan Mere Watan’ weaves together the threads of bravery, patriotism, sacrifice, and determination that were personified by the youth during the epoch-making freedom movement of India.

The film will be presented in Hindi to ensure cultural fidelity but also accommodates linguistic diversity with dubbed versions in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada, honoring the plurality of its Indian audience. Members of Prime Video can look forward to ‘Ae Watan Mere Watan’ as an enthralling new addition.

Reflecting on the thematic heart of the film, Karan Johar from Dharmatic Entertainment remarked, “We have always taken pride in telling stories that emanate from the heart, and ‘Ae Watan Mere Watan’ is a shining example of our ethos. Both Kannan Iyer and Darab Farooqui have painted a rich tapestry of narrative inspired by a key moment in India’s history. The power of the story is further magnified by Sara Ali Khan’s stunning enactment of a young revolutionary. Radio, for years, has persistently played a crucial role in information dissemination, and its role in the Quit India Movement cannot be overstated. This film is a tribute to the impact radio had in rallying the nation and igniting every Indian’s heart with the fervor for freedom.”

He added, “There’s something poetic about announcing the film’s premiere on World Radio Day, celebrating the medium that significantly contributed to the film’s historical context. We are eager to set forth this journey alongside Prime Video. ‘Ae Watan Mere Watan’ has been a labor of love, and we cannot wait to present this stirring and inspiring story to audiences worldwide.”

As preparations for the global premiere are in full swing, audiences around the world are eagerly waiting to be transported back into a pivotal epoch of Indian history. Through its dramatic narrative and powerful performances, ‘Ae Watan Mere Watan’ promises to be more than just a cinematic experience—it aspires to be a resilient echo of an era that shaped a nation’s destiny.
