‘Pratidwandi’ is the first-ever series on Indian Martial Arts.
“The year is 1852. A fire has engulfed the entire nation. India is under siege and her people are waking up to the realities of a foreign rule. Whispers of a rebellion are doing the rounds; a rebellion that could take the nation like a storm and uproot the East India Company from power, forever.”
Sai, a young scion of a legendary family of warriors, is peacefully meditating when the news of his father’s death arrives, delivering a major setback to the tradition of Kalarippayattu. Forced to flee his native village and run for safety, Sai gets abducted by a band of dacoits. Just when he is about to lose all hope, he is miraculously saved by a mysterious young boy, who cites a great debt owed to his father. Sai escapes in time, but ends up with a bunch of unanswered questions in his mind.
Why did a stranger in a forest, miles away from his home, help him?
What was his father really up to?
What will be the fate of the great tradition of Kalarippayattu?
