Stand By Movie ReviewBaichung Bhutia, India's soccer star, has today called it quits after an illustrious career spanning 16 years. And his only desire is to live to see the day India participates in the Soccer World Cup. 'I will take my children to see the matches whenever and wherever it happens,' he is quoted to have said. This is exactly one of the sentiments shared by the character that plays the coach of the Indian Soccer team in the movie STAND BY. The coach who has to spend more time attending to scheming politicians than his wards, tells the President of the Indian Football Federation (who basically is a politician who knows not what soccer is) that unless they get politics out of the sport, India will always be a STAND BY, watching World Cup matches from the sidelines.

That is the core message of director Sanjay Surkar's film. Politics has always been the bane of Indian sport and this has been highlighted in the media time and again. The rich try to influence team selection, while those in power barter for deals. STAND BY is one such story where a business tycoon wants to see his son in the playing XI at any cost. Even at the cost of his son's best friend, who too is a soccer player. Even though his son is the captain of the State team, he is a standby in the Indian squad. This insult is too much to bear for father and son.
