star(s):
Genre: Sport,
Iqbal (Shreyas Talpade) is a deaf and mute cricket player with an amazing hand at bowling. While his sister Khadija is supportive of his brother's talent, Iqbal's father is strongly against it as he thinks his dreams are waste of time. Khadija helps Iqbal get into a cricket academy run by influential former Indian skipper Guruji (Girish Karnad) who enrols him watching his talent. But when Iqbal threateningly overshadows Guruji's star performer Kamal, whose father funds the academy, with awesome performance, Guruji throws him out of the academy. Iqbal then seeks help from drunkard ex cricketer Mohit (Naseeruddin Shah) who becomes his coach. Under his guidance, Iqbal manages to bag a place in Andhra Pradesh's Ranji Team. His superb performance wins the state team many matches. Unhappy with Iqbal's rising popularity, Guruji tries to bribe him to bowl badly to Kamal in a match that will be inspected by Indian team selectors. Will Iqbal give in to the offer given his failing economic conditions? Or will he rise up to the occasion and follow his dreams?
