The makers of the upcoming Indo-British sports drama, A Game of Two Halves, released the film’s trailer recently. Directed by British-Asian filmmaker Khayam Khan, the film stars Marvel’s Eternals star Saaj Raja in the lead role.
Also starring 12th Fail Fame Harish Khanna and Piku fame Swaroopa Ghosh in significant roles, A Game of Two Halves will hit the theatres on February 23.
Billed as a coming-of-age drama, the film follows Sanjay, a young British student grappling with questions of belonging. Lost in the pressures of academia, he finds himself in Hyderabad, India, coaching underprivileged kids on the dusty football fields. It’s in this unexpected setting, surrounded by vibrant energy and raw talent, that Sanjay unlocks his true self.
Here’s the trailer
Talking about the film, director Khayam Khan states, “Growing up in multicultural Britain, I felt connected to Sanjay’s struggles. He chases acceptance through the ‘cool kids,’ but it’s the unassuming lessons from these underprivileged youngsters that show him his true potential. The film explores the gap between who we think we are and who we truly become when we embrace our authentic selves.”
A Game of Two Halves also stars Nikkita Chadha, Lucy Jackson, Pawan Chopra, Sudha Bhuchar, Chizzy Akudolu, Rajiv Kumar Aneja, and Sachin Chaudhary.
Written by Shirley Day, A Game of Two Halves is produced by Nicola Gregory, Dean Charles and Sheila Nortley under K Squared Films, 2HotFilms & Emineo Films.
