Freak Fighters captures the journey towards making or breaking of a collective dream - and everything in between.

Synopsis

Manish Kumar's life has been just one dream - creating an Indian wrestling league, which is styled on the lines of World Entertainment Wrestling (WWE). An entire generation of young Indians grew up watching WWE on television and it is these men and women who are Manish's talent pool as well as his audience. In a country where cricket is religion, such a dream is quickly dismissed as outlandish - but such rejection only fuels his passion rabidly.

He has cobbled up a ragtag group of wrestlers and they call themselves Freak Fighter Wrestling (FFW). FFW wrestlers are men and women leading very ordinary lives who are united in their dream of earning fame, money and giving a meaning to their often written-off lives.

Accompanying the showmen of FFW on their entertaining journey, The Freak Fighters stays with them in that year of their lives where finances have hit rock bottom, Manish’s family is pressurizing him to get married and he faces a tough decision about FFW’s fate. It is only the sheer power of dreams that keeps this band of brothers afloat. Bringing a humorous story to life, the film portrays interlocking stories of young Indians as they live through a face-off between India’s traditional and modern values, following the beaten path and living on the edge, a life of ordinariness and a passionate chase for personal glory.
