The film sheds light on the glorious period of Bengal renaissance that saw the sport become an integral part of Kolkata’s cultural ethos. Releasing nationally on October 10, Golondaaj follows the extraordinary journey of Sarbadhikari, also referred to as the ‘Father of Indian Football’, who like a true warrior and team-player overcame every barrier to win a life changing game of football against the British.
With football fever spanning round the year amid the string of Indian and international leagues, Golondaaj will add to the exuberance that the ‘beautiful game’ brings. The seamless game play, easy-to-use interface, and controls shown in the film are a must watch. Golondaaj – The Game translates the same exciting experience over 50 fabulous levels, spanning five leagues that require the user, as the central hero Nagendra Prasad Sarbadhikari, to score a goal by drawing a full path for the ball along with the team.
