Synopsis   |   Director's Note   |   Producer's Note

Pritish Nandy Communications brings you the craziest, most amazing love story of the year! And the one thing it’s not about is hearts, flowers and Cupid with his bow-n-arrow! Infact, tweak it a little, take away the bow-n-arrow and put a bat in Cupid’s plump little arms and what you’ve got is Meerabai Not Out!

Meera Achrekar, a mathematics teacher at Vishwaprem Vidyalaya, has been a happy single for quite a while now. The great love of her life has been, and will always remain, cricket and Anil Kumble. The meticulous number cruncher is, despite not being the classic eye-candy-teenage-fantasy-fodder, a huge hit in class. And that’s because Meera, unlike most teachers of her school, is more fanatical about her religion–cricket–than even the school cricket captain!

Living with her family in their small home in a Mumbai chawl, Meera was initiated into her temple of Wankhede Stadium by her brother, Manoj.

While the folk at Bhaktiyog Society have cast aspersions on her craze towards the game, the bigger problem that worries the Achrekar family is Meera’s still-single status. Love suddenly blossoms with heart-specialist, Dr Arjun Sachdeva and Meera realizes that perhaps there is more to life than praying for Team India and Anil Kumble! However, in between this fabulous exchange of text messages, Valentine’s Day outings and walks along Chowpatty, she confesses to Arjun that she is already married–to cricket!

So, while the maiden’s heart beats for Anil Kumble, the more important question is: will Meera be able to commit to her non-striker beau and keep her prospective father-in-law at bay?

Did you know?

Marathi hit filmmaker, Chandrakant Kulkarni’s first Hindi film was actually made to time with the Cricket World Cup 2007 but India’s disastrous performance made cricket fans so angry that PNC discreetly pulled it out at the last minute. Luckily, India’s cricketing prowess subsequently improved. So did the mood of millions of cricket watchers. India’s first woman of cricket, Mandira Bedi, plays a cricket fan here who passes rude remarks on screen about Mandira Bedi’s knowledge of cricket.
