Synopsis: Best friends Ishaan, Omi and Govind - young, ambitious and restless - are trying to make a mark in the India of the early 2000's. These are exciting times - a new millennium has just dawned, India's a nuclear power and ostensibly shining - a perfect place for the 3 Ahmedabad boys to start a business that could be their ticket to fame and riches. In a country where cricket is religion, they hit upon a brilliant plan - to start a training academy that could produce India's next sporting superstars! What follows is without doubt the greatest adventure of their lives, as they attempt to navigate the big hurdles in the path of fulfilling their dreams. (c) UTV

Critic Reviews for Kai Po Che!

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (7)

[The acting] is technically accomplished, but never quite transcends their scripted traits, rendering the film's tonal shifts more matter of fact than emotionally wrenching.

A rollicking male-bonding picture about three buddies who open a cricket academy in India's exotic Gujarat, Brothers for Life turns extremely dark and violent in the last half hour, becoming a far more significant film.

A film that might be the next Bend It Like Beckham - if it did not have the sensibilities of the next Dr. Zhivago.

Its performances are enjoyably boisterous, and director Abhishek Kapoor refuses to linger on clichés for too long ...

February 21, 2013 | Full Review…

Mixes, not quite successfully, traditional Bollywood storytelling with something less conventional.

It's a sprawling tale of friendship during a tumultuous time of sectarian strife in India.

Audience Reviews for Kai Po Che!


A friendship drama that would appeal more to the Indian audience rather than that over the world at large. Maybe Chetan Bhagat will have now realized that writing a book is not the same as transforming it into a good screenplay. 3 Idiots was based on his novel, but it's its screenplay that made it so popular and likable. Kai Po Che! is just good for one-time watch; a passable flick. The overdose of cliches makes it further less engaging. There's nothing about it that takes it to the level of an unforgettable film. The performances, specifically that of Sushant Singh Rajput, is commendable. If only the story was so interesting.
