In a Gandhiesque role, Amitabh Bachchan is back on the big screen in Satyagraha.

Ably accompanied by Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal, the trailer shows us a glimpse of a nation, fed up with its corrupt government, revolting en masse.

To be released on Independence Day, this is a very timely movie, but will it manage to touch a chord in the collective national consciousness? We'll find out this August 15.

And for all of you out there who thought the film was based on Anna Hazare, sorry to disappoint you, but that's far from the truth.

We have it from the director's own mouth: "The entire process of satyagraha comes from Gandhiji. Mr Bachchan plays the role of a satyagrahi who believes in truth," said Prakash Jha.

Check out the trailer and tell us what you think.
