What is Escape to Victory: The Making of Malhar about?
Escape to Victory follows the journey of a group of students, who prepare to enter one of India's most prestigious and highly competitive inter-collegiate festivals called Malhar. This festival was initiated by St.Xavier's College, Mumbai in 1978, to provide a platform for students from across the country to showcase their talents in several art forms. The event takes place annually in the month of August. That's when you have the monsoons in India. Hence, the name "Malhar" which in Hindi means rain. For five consecutive years, Jai Hind College were the proud champions of Malhar. But lost miserably in 2005, which left the students devastated. And then came the year 2006. It was now that the students had to strive to regain their lost honor. To prove the true spirit of their institution. Their motto, 'I Will And I Can'. This film shares the experience of what the students went through on achieving something that was nothing short of an impossible dream.
