Amitabh is a retired school teacher. He is determined to bring the marginalized children of the society back into the mainstream of life. There is only one tool, football. The director deserves applause for this visual treatment. The director did not forget to show care, love, and sympathy in the dark and damp life of the slum.

Is it based on a true story?
Yes, the movie is inspired by the real-life hero Vijay Barse who has committed his life to sportsmanship and the development of athletes from children who have been shunned by society.
He was born in Nagpur in 1945 and worked as a sports professor at Nagpur’s Hislop College. He had taken cover under a tree one rainy afternoon in July 2001 when he observed a bunch of slum youngsters playing homemade football with a broken bucket, and that was his Eureka moment! Hundreds of poor children’s lives were transformed forever by what happened next.
Barse, who comes from a poor family, viewed this as an opportunity to protect these kids away from thievery and other criminal acts by training them to be athletes. As a result, he and some of his coworkers decided to organise a football competition for these children. Surprisingly, roughly 128 teams took part in it. And it was then that he decided to explore this on a greater basis.
He was awarded eighteen lakhs when he retired in the same year. He, his wife Ranjana Barse, and his son Abhijeet Barse utilised the money to form the NGO Krida Vikas Sanstha Nagpur (KSVN). Slum Soccer, a soccer academy that gives training and rehabilitation to disadvantaged youth, is run by KSVN. This man has been rewarded the Real Hero Award.
His contribution to the transforming life of slum kids is really unforgettable. There are some incidents in the movie that is fictional but the movie is based on his great effort to make the slum kid’s life better.
