Movie Plot:

The story opens with Manjule giving us an up-close look at the slum people who survive off the land in Nagpur’s Gaddigodam slums. The youngsters engage in a variety of illicit activities, from chain-snatching to selling illegal liquor. When they aren’t using drugs, some of them gamble and engage in street fights. Vijay Borade (Amitabh Bachchan), a sports coach and social worker at St John’s School, is nearing retirement.  He encounters a group of slum kids who are playing football with a plastic bucket. Vijay becomes friends with them and teaches them how to play the game. As they learn more about themselves and the sport, the kids begin to set life objectives.
