Sports has always been seen more as a hobby than a profession or lifestyle in India. Even though there is a change in the way people look at sports today with huge amounts being invested into leagues having the proper conditions at the grassroots level is always a tough task. Eros Now’s Kesari stars the evergreen Mahesh Manjrekar in a supporting role and shows us the plight of a local wrestler who is trying to make his way to the top.
The life of a wrestler or any athlete, in general, is not easy as there are a lot of sacrifices involved in it. One has to be disciplined enough to have a proper diet and a proper regime where you work on the different aspects of the game repeatedly. Along with sacrifices you also need the resources to maintain that kind of lifestyle.
Recruiting a proper mentor and many other challenges are what makes the central theme of Eros Now’s Kesari so interesting as it navigates the struggler of a local athlete who doesn’t have a coach or any financial sustenance to bank upon. He finds a master who is willing to train him and things take off from there.
Eros Now’s Kesari is a Marathi sports drama and it stars Virat Madake, Mahesh Manjrekar, Vikram Gokhale and Rupa Borgaonkar in lead roles.
Kesari captures the essence of how people from rural India have to struggle against all the odds to make it to the top without much assistance whether it is the emotional support of your family or financial assistance of those who are close to you.
