Storyline

As India, host of the 2011 World Cup of Cricket, begins its campaign to win the Cup after a 28-year drought, three ordinary Indians seek their salvation/escape from a difficult life through their passion for cricket - Sudhir, a penniless superfan who cycles across India to cheer the team; Prithvi, a 12-year old boy wonder who is a cricket prodigy; and Akshaya, a girl cricketer from Mumbai's slums. We follow Sudhir to see what drives the man who has renounced so much, including marriage, for his dream of cheering Team India forever; Akshaya as she competes in the trials for selection to the Mumbai Women's Team, and Prithvi as he copes with the unique pressures of being a cricket phenom in a cricket-crazy nation.

Film has happy endings for all the main stories, without sugarcoating life in India
10 November 2013 | by ealexis-841-735918See all my reviews

We saw this film as part of San Francisco Film Festival.

The real life stories in the documentary all revolve around cricket but no knowledge of cricket is required to follow the real drama in the story, which are the tales of three individuals and a nation trying to overcome tough starts in life.

The director Sushrut Jain clearly chose to focus on people that he found compelling and their appeal comes through on the screen.

The film audience was literally cheering for every victory, large and small.

If you get a chance to see this film, you should take it. While it does depict some of the grittiness of life for the poor in the India, it remains family friendly and accessible for kids, although probably better for kids who can read. While most of the film is in English, there are some subtitles.
