Shuttlecock Boys revolves around the lives, successes and failures of four friends who hail from lower middle class backgrounds in Delhi. The one thing that unites them is their common love for badminton. Every evening they meet for a couple of games, whilst joking about their lives and pulling each other’s legs. This part of the day is the most pleasant part of their otherwise dreary lives. A story of determination, courage, luck and the enduring spirit of friendship.
