The story of the film is based in Sansarpur, a village in the Jalandhar cantonment, which has a rich hockey legacy. The world-famous village has given 15 Olympic medals, including eight gold and a silver. And all the Olympic medallists are from one clan ‘Kulars’. Depicting the rich Olympic legacy of the village, a Punjabi movie KHIDO KHUNDI will capture the essence of the game.
The film will hit the cinemas on April 20th 2018.
KHIDO KHUNDI, which literally means ball and hockey stick, is a blend of fiction and non-fiction revolving around Sansarpur village. The movie traces the golden age of Indian hockey in which Punjab, particularly Sansarpur, made a major contribution to Indian hockey. It also depicts the current scenario, where Sansarpur has lost its sheen. While a major part of the movie has been shot in Sansarpur, some scenes have been shot in London.
The story is about two Punjabi NRI brothers settled in England. They aim to make the game of hockey come alive again, and taking it as a challenge, they return to their roots in Sansarpur where their father once used to be the caretaker of the hockey field before migrating to England. With the help of village youth, they form a team and later challenge an English Club in a three-match series.
The trailer of the film was released today and it touches your soul, its emotional and full of power and wit.
The way two brothers talk about one of the important games is something that caught our interest. The dialogues are intense and we cant wait for the film!
