The object of this Research Paper is to make the people aware of the fatal results of Totalitarian government which denotes terror, horror, and dominance of man over man, where we can see the death of individual freedom. 1984 is always referred to as one of the frightful and horrifying texts of the modern dystopian literature. George Orwell boldly criticized the Totalitarian government. Orwell tried to show the real picture of Totalitarian government in any state, through this dystopian novel 1984. There is a character, Big Brother who controls the whole state and whatever he wants to do, he can do because nobody can oppose him if anyone tries to live according to his own desires and freedom, definitely he shall be punished to death. And the most dangerous thing is that, everyone has to love Big Brother with the expression of happiness at the end even they know that he is a cruel dictator.
