History of mankind is a chronology of just such unnamed heroes who have laid down their lives in the hope to regain their land and their honour from the corrupt. Hope immortal; hope indomitable; hope resurrected again and again from the debris of oppression and suffering. Jesus 71 is a saga of a handful of freedom-fighters of Bengalâ€™s Independence War, where the makers have drawn parallels of their unselfish sacrifices with those of Biblical heroes of antiquity.
A disheartened Desmond cannot reconcile these events with the hope ingrained in him through his religious teachings. Vindication, comes in the dead of night, in the form of yet another band of youthful, invincible partisans. This for Desmond is the re-enactment of the divine act of the Resurrection of Jesus, Himself. Jesus 71 Personifies the essence of the spirit of Resurrection. It illustrates the trust, the aspirations and the faith of mankind in the immortality of justice and all that is just.
