The Kalari

"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 which would take the nation like a storm and uproot the East India Company from power, forever."

Set in a fictional universe, Pratidwandi (The Opponent) is the story of how a people’s revolution shook a global empire. It revolves around a band of Indian martial art fighters, who decide to fight against the oppressive rule of the British East India Company, in the backdrop of the Revolt of 1857.
