The 75-minute long documentary is an elaborate and analytical film on the chief architect of the Constitution of India, which focuses especially on his relentless campaign against the oppression of the backward classes in the country.

Ambedkar was a revolutionary freedom fighter, who along with Jawaharlal Nehru and Mahatma Gandhi, played a key role in the upliftment of the poor, untouchables and other backward groups of the society in India. He was awarded the Bharat Ratna, the highest civilian award in India, posthumously in 1990.
