The story of this movie revolves around the mediocrity of a middle-class woman who craves to re-build her life and enjoy life on her own terms. Sagarika Ghatge, playing the lead in ‘Monsoon Football’, will be seen playing football in a sari, with a bunch of women and the film will revolve around their obstacles, achievements & overcoming mediocrity, as normal middle-class housewives.
The Director, Milind K Ukey says about ‘Monsoon Football’, ‘’Sagarika was my best choice for the film. She loved the subject and is undergoing serious training in the game of football. This will be the first of its kind film in Marathi, about women playing football. The Hindi version for the same too is being worked out simultaneously. ’’
