Hey Ram 2000
Saket Ram (Kamal Haasan) is an archeologist, a scholar and an intellectual. Though he is a Tamil Brahmin by birth, his own political beliefs are open, progressive, and secular. Ram's ideology is shaken to the core, though, when, in rioting following the announcement of Partition, his beloved wife Apurna is brutally raped and murdered by a Muslim gang. Ram is distraught to the point of madness, and he wanders the streets of Calcutta in a daze. He meets up with Sriram Abhiyankar, who is leading a group of Hindu extremists…

Most of the film unfolds in flashback within the brief span between August 16, 1946, when the future "Father of Pakistan" Muhammad Ali Jinnah's declaration of a day of "Direct Action" by Muslims sparked communal carnage in Calcutta, and January 30th 1948, when a Hindu fanatic's bullet felled the "Father of India", Mahatma Gandhi at a prayer meeting in the garden of New Delhi's Birla House.
