Ghosts of the past haunt a former athlete who accepts the job of a PT teacher in a girl’s school to bail her family out of a financial crisis. She discovers the game of kho-kho and a bunch of talented girls there and through them tries to achieve vicariously what she herself couldn’t in her career.Kho Kho 2021 Movie Download.
An unglamorous sport that somehow got catapulted to the National Games; the outdoor equivalent of chess where skills and strategy matter as much, if not more than, athleticism and muscle power. The game of kho-kho forms the backdrop for Rahul Riji Nair to tell the story of Maria Francis from Thiruvananthapuram who misses a chance to be in the national team because of unforeseen and unexpected circumstances. The disappointment(s) of her career are told through a series of flashbacks by the filmmaker who takes care not to dwell too much in the past but simply gives a few glimpses on her professional and personal setbacks.
As the story unfolds, we find Maria coming to terms with her new assignment as the physical education teacher in Perunthuruthu, a back-of-the-beyond island. Nobody expects much from her, not in the least the principal or the parents. But the game of kho-kho sort of handpicks her to use it as a medium to empower a bunch of giggly and fun-loving teenagers, led by the irrepressible and short-tempered Anju played by Mamitha Baiju with great flourish and realism. In a state where we grew up admiring how coach Nambiar and his protégé Usha brought back athletic glory in truckloads, it is a highly relatable tale of a talented athlete transferring her spark of desire onto the next generation, which is in desperate need of direction and an inspirational figure to stir them out of their slumber.
