Films made on such lesser-known historical chapters have a certain cultural value that duly compensate for the missing cinematic appeal in the final product. In other words, despite having its shortcomings THE BLACK PRINCE successfully makes you aware of some crucial historical events of the past that many of the youngsters might not have even heard of, as they are not included in the history books compiled for the students at the school level.
So moving beyond the points mentioned in the detailed review (at the link given above) here is a concluding thought about the way Indian history needs to be taught to the young students.
The KHALSA RAJ/SIKH EMPIRE of Maharaja Ranjit Singh has its own political and moral importance and is one of the most significant chapters of Indian subcontinent’s history that should ideally be there in the concerned chapters of the school books.
Similarly the unparalleled contribution of Guru Tegh Bahadar (also given the honour as ‘Hind Di Chaadar’) and Guru Gobind Singh also needs to be there in the syllabus of middle level classes rightly informing the youth about the earliest sacrifices and revolts made against the invaders of the Indian subcontinent without any personal motive or religious agenda.
But unfortunately, this information about the last Sikh Gurus and the brave Sikh Generals largely remains missing in the history school books in India stressing more upon the later part of the independence struggle in the early 20th century. 
Wonder why they are not considered as an integral part of the Indian history by many learned scholars preparing these school books?

Rating : 3 / 5 (including additional points for its informative value and the adorable Shabana Azmi)
