Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], September 29: "I Killed Bapu" is the story of the most hated murderer in the history of India- “Nathuram Vinayak Godse". He was the Assasin of "Mahatma Gandhi" and this became his only identity after Gandhi's Assassination. But people forgot his real identity and personality which was a freedom fighter and a dreamer of "Akhand Bharat" i.e. "Undivided India". He was totally against the division of India and Pakistan. He blamed Gandhi for this partition. And that made him hate Gandhi so much that he was scared that if Gandhi lived for more years then there would be more partitions taking place in the country. And that's why he planned to kill Gandhi along with his friends. These things are mentioned in his book "Maine Gandhi Vadh Kyu kiya".  This film depicts the real and far-forgotten identity of Nathuram Vinayak Godse, who was a Patriot and a hardcore Nationalist.  He was a Brahmin by Caste and that's why he was a follower of the Hindu religion and he was proud of being a Hindu.  He also popularized the work of his mentor "Vinayak Damodar Savarkar" who created the ideology of "Hindutva"

The movie carefully unravels Godse's life, starting with his initial role as a freedom fighter and dreamer of "Akhand Bharat," or Undivided India.
