Carrom Caper

Set in a Mumbai ghetto in the mid 1980s and based on true life accounts, Striker is a story of triumph of human spirit over indomitable odds.

Siddharth, who stepped into Bollywood with Rang De Basanti, returns to Hindi cinema after a long gap. The utterly choosy star plays a carrom champ in the movie. The other actors include Aditya Pancholi, as a dreaded gangster, Ankur Vikal as the protagonist’s childhood friend and most trusted ally, Anupam Kher as an honest, tough and smart cop, Nicolette Bird as a girl from a conservative Muslim family, and Padmapriya as a fisherwoman who runs a bar and restaurant all by herself.


Born into a poor family, Surya (Siddharth) grows up with few luxuries. Poor health keeps him away from school often and that is when his elder brother, Chandrakant, introduces him to carrom.

Quite similar to pool in its concept, carrom is common among people from middle and lower income groups all over India. Precision and skill are vital to playing the game well; attitude and confidence are crucial to win. The underground carrom scene has been breeding hustlers and gamblers for many years.

Winning the Junior Carrom Championship at 12 is not enough to keep Surya's fire for the sport burning through adolescence. Hopes for a job in Dubai, replaces the passion for carrom as Surya grows into a young man.

Duped by a bogus overseas employment agency, Surya loses all his hard earned money he had saved for going to Dubai. Surya is forced to cross paths with Jaleel (Aditya Pancholi).

Since the 70s when the settlements in the ghetto began, Jaleel had acquired a strong hold in the area. He had his hands in every illicit activity since then. Feeding on the weaknesses of people, Jaleel was the self-proclaimed king of Malwani.

Reintroduced to Carrom by his childhood friend Zaid (Ankur Vikal), this time to the hustling scene, Surya starts playing again. Being gypped of his hard earned money by the same man who had caused misery for many families; Surya decides to take on Jaleel on his turf.

His patience and cool attitude are Surya's biggest strengths. But life has ways of testing even the strong.

‘Striker’ is not a film about good versus evil. It is the story of a friendship, life in the city of dreams in the 80's, a story of a game that is most common but non-existent. A story of a Carrom player who grows up on the fringes of a criminal existence but does not succumb to it.

The movie is directed by Chandan Arora and has songs by a host of music composers, including Shailendra Barve, Amit Trivedi, Vishal Bharadwaj, Yuvan Shankar Raza, Swanand Kirkire and Blaaze.

‘Striker’ is set to release on February 5.
