Hockey, the national sport of our country which maintained dominance across the globe by winning back to back Gold medals in Olympics was once known as ‘Khido Khundi’ in rural Punjab. Reliving the golden age of Indian Hockey, the much-anticipated trailer of Ranjit Bawa and Manav Vij starrer ‘Khido Khundi’ was released on YouTube yesterday and as expected it has left the viewers in a state of awe.
Directed by Rohit Jugraj, the trailer of Khido Khundi is everything that a sports film should be about. While Ranjit Bawa and Manav Vij, who play brothers, will give you Goosebumps with their thundering performance, Mandy Takhar’s intense dialogue delivery will make you play the trailer in a loop.
A Fair idea about Indian Hockey’s dominance in Hockey world could be deduced from the fact that India consecutively won 6 Gold medals between 1928 and 1956. Rohit Jugraj, known for directing films like ‘Jatt James Bond and Sardaarji series’ has already proved his mettle and with ‘Khido Khundi’, it will be interesting to see what new he intends to bring to the table. So mark your calendars for April 20 and get ready to relive the Hockey extravaganza one more time.
