“The year is 1852. A fire has engulfed the entire nation. India is under siege and her people are waking up to the realities of a foreign rule. Whispers of a rebellion are doing the rounds; a rebellion that could take the nation like a storm and uproot the East India Company from power, forever.”

Sai, a young scion of a legendary family of warriors, is peacefully meditating when the news of his father’s death arrives, delivering a major setback to the tradition of Kalarippayattu. Forced to flee his native village and run for safety, Sai gets abducted by a band of dacoits. Just when he is about to lose all hope, he is miraculously saved by a mysterious young boy, who cites a great debt owed to his father. Sai escapes in time, but ends up with a bunch of unanswered questions in his mind.

Why did a stranger in a forest, miles away from his home, help him?
What was his father really up to?
What will be the fate of the great tradition of Kalarippayattu?

'Pratidwandi' is the first ever series on Indian Martial Arts.
