This Indian Hindi-language sports drama tells the historic story of the Hockey team that won the first Olympic medal for India as a free nation on the 12th of August 1948. The same date this year commemorates the 70th anniversary of this historic feat. Akshay Kumar plays Tapas Dan, a young assistant manager in 1936 trying to put a hockey team together, who dreams of playing for an independent nation. The story of this moving drama highlights India's emergence from the shadow of the British Empire as it meets the British hockey team on the field, this time as a nation in its own right. Presented at the CINEMA on the very same day as its release in India, on India`s Independence Day August 15, this hotly anticipated release is an inspirational story of a team that fought against all odds to bring their nation hope, pride and respect.
