He relied mainly on historical facts, but at times borrowed mythological concept to show the statue of Udham Singh coming to life. The play eloquently depicted the freedom struggle and resolute resolve of martyr Udham Singh to avenge the Jallianwala Bagh massacre.

Sindra has created symbolic characters and sequences to bring into focus the unscrupulous elements engaged in fanning terrorism, corruption and unethical activities which must be dealt with sternly.
