An intense story about a young London based film-maker, who chances upon her grandfather’s diary, once served in the British Police force in India during the years’ of country’s freedom struggle. RDB, evokes a high sense of pride & patriotism, as we watch this foreigner girl’s ordeal together with her unmoved determination to live-up to her grandfather’s dream of making a movie on the five young Indian partisans, of his time. Stirred by the boisterous passion of the young blood, the officer who once wished to document their lives was oblivious to his own life’s plans for him.

Today, in her tryst to fulfill her grandfather’s unmet wish, the granddaughter comes to India’s very own capital–Delhi, to realize her life’s biggest goal, but is left dismayed once again, due to lack of funds to shoot her movie. But, not calling it quits! This indomitable spirit instead decides to casts a group of five young friends from the city’s University itself, to play the historical characters of the five revolutionaries, in her movie.

However the going becomes even tougher as she discovers the aim of these five-young friends is anything but patriotism & self–sacrifice, for them it is all but the subject that should best remain closed in the fat old books of history. They would instead party than be patriots. RDB is the movie which dabbles and draws a parallel contrast between the 1930’s British India and the India of today’s time.
