Nivin Pauly stars in an inspirational Malayalam family drama charting one man's 30-year passion for cricket. It's 1983 in the remote, picturesque village of Brahmamangalam, Kerala. Like boys all across India, young Rameshan (Nivin Pauly) is inspired by his nation's historic victory in the Cricket World Cup. But he faces many challenges in his own aspiration to become a great cricketer. In particular, his disapproving father, Gopi Aashaan (Joy Mathew), who wants him to become an engineer. Rameshan never achieves his dream, and his undying passion for the game eventually costs him his girlfriend, Manjula (Nikki Galrani). But he goes on to marry Susheela (Srinda Ashab) and they have a son named Kannan, who inherits his dad's enthusiasm for cricket. Determined that the boy's ambition should not be thwarted, Rameshan brings in noted coach Vijay Menon (Anoop Menon). Fashion photographer Abrid Shine's rousing debut feature boasts a heartfelt central performance by Nivin Pauly.
