Awesome film, when will this beautiful, diverse country ever be rid of caste system n fringe elements.
14 January 2018 | by TakethispunchSee all my reviews

In the city of Bareilly, in Uttar Pradesh, aspiring boxer Shravan slogs day and night to achieve his dream of becoming a professionally recognized boxer. Things go awry when he falls in love with a high caste, mute girl, Sunaina, who happens to be the niece of his arch nemesis, the head of the state boxing federation, Bhagwan Das Mishra. To marry his love, he needs a job and for him, the path to a stable government job is through Boxing. But what Shravan doesn't expect is that in India, Boxing is about everything else but the sport, which is heightened by the volatile political climate of Uttar Pradesh. While he slogs day and night in preparation for his tournament fights, what he isn't prepared for is uphill casteism, nepotism, doping, religious fanaticism and a continuous class struggle.
