The film, Penalty, is primarily about football but also puts focus on racism and discrimination. One of the lead actors is well-known personality Kay Kay Menon who is playing the role of a football coach. The other lead role is being played by a talented youth from Manipur, Lukram Smil. Apart from acting, he is also a skilled designer as he is graduate of the prestigious National Institute of Fashion Technology. In the movie, viewers will follow the lives of football coach Parth and his student Lukram who is originally from the Northeast but plays football in a college at Lucknow.
A film by Shubham Singh, the film has been produced by Nilesh Sakhiya, Ritu Shrivastva, Aditya Shrivastva, Ravi Singh, Annu K, Aakash Dabhade and Bijou Thaangjam, according to the poster. For those not in the know, Bijou is another talented actor from Manipur who has appeared in many big banner movies and popular web series. He is definitely a celebrity to watch. With this, he has added another tile to his wide range of skills. Music and background score is by Siddhant Madhav.
Although there has been a lot of talk about the movie, it is yet to be released. Even though the poster pointed at 30th March 2018 release, it must have been delayed for some reasons which have not been reported so far. As the film is supposed to speak up about pertinent issues that Northeasterners face, we are looking forward to this movie. Let’s hope the makers decide to release it soon.
