Tirangaa is an Indian Patriotic film starring Raaj Kumar, Nana Patekar and Mamta Kulkarni, released in 1993.[2] The movie was a blockbuster.[3] At the time of 1993 Bombay bombings, Plaza cinema, Mumbai was also bombed where the movie was showing, leaving 10 dead and 37 injured.[4]


The film starts with the kidnapping of three nuclear scientists by Pralayanath Gendaswamy (Deepak Shirke) as he plans to build nuclear missiles for an invasion on India. Meanwhile Deputy Inspector General of Police Rudrapratap Chouhan (Suresh Oberoi) an honest police officer is murdered by Pralayanath Gendaswamy since he has been on his hitlist. Rudrapatap's son Harish (Harish Kumar) is the only witness of his murder. When scientists are gone missing police calls Brigadier Suryadev Singh (Raj Kumar) to take matter into his hands. Suryadev allies with hot-headed police Inspector Shivajirao Wagle (Nana Patekar) who spends a lot of time being suspended due to his temper. When Central Minister Jeevanlal Tandel who is an ally of Pralayanath Gendaswamy sets up a meeting with him to inform him about Suryadev Singh, Pralayanath Gendaswamy questions why is there information about his glory and not a single photograph of his face. At that moment Suryadev Singh enters the auditorium and reveals that he is the one whose face Pralayanath Gendaswamy was so eager to see.

Meanwhile on the New Year's Eve Harish and his friends witness an attempt of murder on Radha Tandel. They rushes her to hospital but later on flees as the staff calls police to inquire about the case. Police then trace Harish by his wallet which was left at hospital and charge him with an attempt of rape on Radha.

After knowing who Suryadev is, Pralayanath Gendaswamy tries to kill him by planting bomb in his car. But Suryadev's car is a high tech vehicle and hence he makes an escape with his driver/bodyguard bahaddur from a below passage door in car. Then the news is widespread that he has been murdered.

But Suryadev escapes and tells this news to Pralaynath through a TV interview. Pralaynath tries to kidnap Professor Khurana but Suryadev and Wagle fail his attempt. Then Pralayanth tries to kill Harish and his friends, but one of his friend sacrifices his life to save him on the eve of Raksha Bandhan. Pralaynath then again tries to kidnap Professor Khurana but fails to do so, and instead takes the fuse conductor to make his missiles work. Wagle and Suryadev track him down through their trans-meter. Suryadev foils Pralaynath's missiles by taking out the fuse conductors and guns him down. Wagle finishes off Pralaynath's son. The film ends with the 15 August programme concluding successfully.
