Sunil Chhetri Documentary Series: Overview of Captain Fantastic

The first episode of the series takes viewers back to where it all started for Sunil Chhetri, India’s talismanic captain. This fly-on-the-wall saga unearths untold tales of the man who would be captain — from his precocious pre-teen angst, to the first embers of his long romance with his future wife — all leading up to his India debut at the age of 20. Close associates, loved ones, and footballing colleagues help tell the tale — apart from the man himself, the man affectionately dubbed, ‘Captain, Leader, Legend’.

The second episode of the series follows Sunil Chhetri as he starts to perform wonders for his national team, and slowly becomes a fixture. Meanwhile, he pursues his big dream — to play professional football for a top-class overseas club. Triumphs and tribulations follow, as he sees some dreams fulfilled — and others broken.
