&TV’s new show ‘Atal’ will narrate the untold childhood stories of former Prime Minister Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee. The show’s premiere episode will air on December 5 at 8:00 pm.
The first episode will showcase Atal’s birth, the cultural values instilled in him by his family, his discomfort with the unfair treatment under British rule, and his stand against injustice.
Ashutosh Kulkarni, who portrays Krishna Vajpayee’s role, shares insights into the upcoming track. He highlights how Atal’s family faces obstacles due to a British officer and Tomar (Mahmood Hashmi) while trying to reach the hospital during Christmas festivities. As Atal (Vyom Thakkar) grows up, his family emphasizes the importance of cultural values and heritage. Atal’s defiance against the erasure of cultural symbols at school and his discomfort with the unfair treatment of those under British rule showcase his growing awareness and dissent.
Witnessing the brutal oppression of villagers by British officers further strengthens his resolve to stand against injustice. Atal’s quest for understanding leads him to Bhagat Singh’s story, which deeply impacts him. The impending execution of Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev, and Rajguru disturbs Atal profoundly. Despite opposition, he aims to pay homage to these martyrs. The climax builds as Atal’s family confronts Tomar’s intimidation tactics, displaying their unwavering support for freedom fighters despite the risks posed by the British authorities. This confrontation highlights their resilience and determination to stand against oppression and honor the sacrifices made for India’s freedom.
Tune in to watch the premiere episode of ‘Atal’ on Dec 5th at 8:00 pm, airing every Monday to Friday only on &TV!
