The Forgotten Army Cast

In the lead character, we have Sunny Kaushal, who, even though he is a newbie in the industry, has still managed to beautifully portray two contrasting phases of his character’s life. Supporting character cast includes:

  • Karanvir Malhotra
  • M.K Raina
  • Sushma Seth
  • Nizhalghal Ravi
  • Amala Akkineni

These have done their fair share of compensating performances however; the direction could’ve been a lot better. The show has been directed by Kabir Khan, a widely acclaimed director, who has big box offices including Ek Tha Tiger, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Phantom, etc. under his name.

The Forgotten Army Web Series Story

History is told that in February 1942, a ferocious battle was fought between Britain and Japan for the capture of Singapore, the Gibraltar of the East. Singapore was Britain’s key military base and the Japanese invasion was taken as an insult by the Queen.

What we do not know is that the Indian National Army ( Azad Hind Fauj) fought on behalf of the Britishers on the Singapore soil, only to be ditched by the Britishers, their imperialists, and sacrificed at the battlefield at the hands of the Japanese, who decisively won the battle.

The Forgotten Army Azadi ke Liye captures the account of History ( Courage of Indian Soldiers), that history failed to register. Kabir Khan of “Ek Tha Tiger” fame promises a mega-scale courageous account of the Indian National Army’s sacrifice for the British.

Authentic locations, the potential hidden truth, superb direction/ acting, and international cross-cultural casting makes this Web Series a memorable one indeed.

The show is set in contemporary times, however, it is presented as an anecdote as shared by an army veteran Surinder Singh Sodhi. Without revealing much, the show starts with Sodhi paying a visit to his grand-nephew Amar in Singapore. Amar is set to cover a student’s protest for democracy in Myanmar.

With no further delay, we see the duo bond over something that has been forgotten in the pages of Indian history, the instances including those of the Battle of Singapore in 1942, experiences in the INA followed by the institution of an all-women regiment in the Fauj.

The flashbacks start with an Indian unit of the British Army surrendering to the Imperial Japanese forces, thus setting a tone of conflict among the minds of these Indian soldiers about where their allegiance should rest. The show then develops into a plot that now focuses on the Hind Fauj, setting up base in Burma and finally, the female regiment unit.
