Sports-based films have always caught Bollywood's fancy. From Lagaan to Chak De India! to Paan Singh Tomar to Bhaag Milkha Bhaag to Mary Kom, copious films highlighting different types of games and/or sports have been made and received overwhelming response too. Now, gear up for yet another sports-driven film called Badlapur Boys, which is based on Kabbadi.
Not to be mistaken with Varun Dhawan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui's "Badlapur" which is also set to hit the screen soon, Badlapur Boys is a poignant story of a bunch of underdogs, who not only play Kabaddi passionately, but also get involved in crucial socio-economic issues. What is interesting is all this while Bollywood played around international games, for the first time ever we will witness the domestic game, Kabbadi being showcased on big screen. Actor Annu Kapoor plays the role of a Kabaddi coach in the film.
Produced by Karrm movies and directed by Shailesh Verma, Badlapur Boys stars Nishshan, Saranya Mohan, Annu Kapoor, Shashank Udapurkar, Puja Gupta, Anupam Maanav, Kishori Shahane, Mazhar Khan, Ankit Sharma, Vineet, and Aman Verma in the lead roles. The music of the movie is given by Sachin Gupta, Shamir Tandon and Raju Sardar while the lyrics are penned by Sameer Anjaan.
The film is all set to release on December 12, 2014.
