Bose Dead/Alive is set in the first half of the 20th century and majorly revolves around the mystery surrounding the disappearance and presumed death of Bose in 1945. The web series will also document Bose's early days, his encounters with the British Raj and his subsequent acts of rebellion by leading the Indian National Army (INA).

The trailer sums up the spirit that Bose embodied. His unwavering belief in an independent India and his violent means, as opposed to Mahatma Gandhi's non-violence, are captured in a nutshell. There is also a hilarious anecdote of Bose hitting his British college professor repeatedly with his shoe as an act of defiance.

However, as he spells out earlier in the trailer, his defiance is that of a freedom fighter against the political establishment and not in the capacity of a slave who turns his back towards his motherland.

The most interesting bit in the trailer remains Bose's apparent resurfacing after he was presumed dead in 1945. A still of Rajkummar Rao, who plays Bose, holding a copy of The Telegraph that pronounces his demise is quite telling.

Bose Dead/Alive also stars Patralekha Paul and will air on Ekta Kapoor's streaming service ALT Balaji.
