MUMBAI: As television channels across the country brace the patriotic spirit by weaving special programming for the day, Zee Cinema and Star Gold will also air special shows on this occasion.

With a special line up of movies all through the day, Zee Cinema will kick off an all day festival 'Maze Ki Azaadi' with 16th December at 9 am, Ab Tumhare Havale Watan Saathiyon at 12:30 am, Tiranga at 4:30 pm and Indian at 8:30 pm.

'Maze Ki Azaadi' promises to keep its viewers glued to their television screens with not just a line up of films, but an equally entertaining song capturing the free human spirit. The song, 'Aazad Hoon' has been specially scripted, composed and executed in house and will air on the channel intermittently. It has been written by Viond Pandole, composed by Adil and sung by Deepak.

Also in line with the Independence Day spirit, Star Gold will bring three patriotic films back to back on 15 August, including Main Hoon Na (uncut version), Jo Bole So Nihal and Ab Tak Chappan as part of the 'Watan Ke Rakshak Film Festival.'

The central theme of each movie attempts to capture issues pertaining to the law and order system, crime, injustice and terrorism, which of late has gripped the nation.

With its youthful fiery patriotism, Main Hoon Na (Uncut) will air at 1 pm, followed by the Sunny Deol starrer Jo Bole So Nihal at 5:25 pm while Nana Patekar's Ab Tak Chappan, which tracks the story of a Mumbai police encounter specialist's commitment to rid the system of its injustice will air at 9 pm.

To make the day even memorable, SaharaOne Television brings the world TV premiere of Bose, The Forgotten Hero. Directed by Shyam Benegal and produced by SaharaOne Motion Pictures, the movie stars Actor Sachin Khedekar in the lead role of Netaji. The lyrics have been penned by Javed Akhtar and the music score have been by A R Rehman.

The film is structured in three parts, named Itmad, Ittefaq and Qurbani after the motto of the Indian National Army. In the first, Bose escapes house arrest and tries to enter Russia through Afghanistan, the second shows his days in Germany (including a meeting with Hitler, and marriage to Emilie Schenkl), the formation of the Azad Hind Fauj made up of Indian prisoners of war in Germany and his journey to Japan in a submarine; the last shows his leadership of the Indian National Army, the battles and that fateful plane trip out of Saigon.

Bose…The Forgotten Hero will air on 15 August at 11 am.
