About Maidaan

Maidaan chronicles the struggle of Indian football coach Syed Abdul Rahim and shows the golden days of the Indian football team under his leadership from 1952 to 1962. This era was historic for Indian football team, aiming to carve an identity for India and gain global recognition. Set in a newly-independent India, the coach faced challenges in building a formidable team to take on the global football stage. The Indian team, under Rahim's leadership, braved all trials and tribulations and emerged victorious in the Asian Games in 1962, and since then, Indian football has failed to make its mark on the international level. 

Ajay Devgn delivers a remarkable performance, nailing the coach’s perseverance in the spirit of football. Celebrating the OTT release, he said,“Portraying the legendary football coach Syed Abdul Rahim has been a deeply rewarding experience for me. Rahim Saab’s remarkable journey of determination and resilience is truly inspiring, and I believe audiences worldwide, through Prime Video, will be captivated by his story.” Maidaan also features noteworthy performances by Priyamani and Gajraj Rao in impactful roles.
