It’s simple logic thrown to the winds. You can’t put your creative energies in a sports movie, get your actors to do some grueling drills to fit the part and when it comes to the crux, think the audience is a fool. What were you thinking of Mr Vivek Agnihotri?
The League Championship is entering its final stage and Southall Football Club is in a strong position to win the three million-pound prize money, which will see them through the lease of their ground for the next 30 years. Those who want the ground, use unfair means by dangling a carrot in front of their star player, Sunny Bhasin (John Abraham), whose presence in the team can make a difference between a win and a loss.
Sunny goes for the carrot. There’s a much bigger pay packet, a mansion to live in a sports car and other perks offered to professional footballers which he can never imagine to make playing for Southall. This transfer takes place two games before the league comes to an end with Southall second on the points-table tally. A win in the penultimate game will suffice to take Southall to the Trophy while a loss means a must-win situation in the final league game. The penultimate game is lost and it all boils down to the final. Sunny settles in a pub to watch the game and his dad’s friend recognizes him.
Well, to cut the long story short, his dad’s friend tells him how the Senior Bhasin was a huge Southall fan and how in 1985, a day before the Championship Final he came between the white man trying to beat Tony Singh (Boman Irani) the then star of Southall Football Club, and now their coach. Sunny wants to now play the match; he rushes to the stadium while the National Anthems are on, and links shoulder with Shaan (Arshad Warsi) the skipper.
