Description
“Cast in the backdrop of Mughal era during the reigns of Aurangzeb and his successors, Pratirodh is a saga of the relentless resistance by a few brave men against a seemingly invincible Empire to protect their honour and way of life. In response of the rather partisan policies of Mughal Emperors, a number of personalities came forward in different parts of Hindustan, to lead people in resisting the tyranny. Though the geographical dispersion precluded any visible unified approach, they were indirectly benefitted by each other. When Aurangzeb got boughed down in Rajputana against the unified resistance of Marwar and Mewar, it provided much needed succour to great Shivaji and Guru Govind Singh ji to regroup and consolidate in respective areas. The credit of tying down Mughals for the longest period went to Marathas, which acted as lifeline to Sikhs, Rajputs, Bundelas and Jats. Rajputs and Sikhs repaid their debt to Marathas by keeping post Aurangzeb Mughals completely embroiled in Punjab and Rajputana and indirectly paving the way for almost unchallenged rise of Marathas. The prolonged resistance witnessed the supreme sacrifices of numerous unsung heroes of medieval history. Through unmatched grit and determination, they succeeded in bringing down the mighty Empire to its knees, eventually leading to its demise.”
