The film title Kai Po Che is a Gujarati phrase meaning "I Have Cut" which refers to a kite competition where one of the competitors uses his kite to cut off another competitors kite and yells "Kai Po Che!" However, 'Kai Po Che' is not three words, but two words 'Kaipo Che'. 'Kaipo' means 'cut'. splitting it into two words 'Kai Po' confuses, and does not immediately relate to the intended meaning.
The shooting started mid-April in Vadnagar, Ahmedabad. "Kai Po Che" had a world premiere at the 63rd Berlin International Film Festival on 13 February 2013 where it was the first ever Indian film to feature in the World Panorama section.
In a country where cricket is religion, they hit upon a brilliant plan – to start a training academy that could produce India's next sporting superstars! What follows is without doubt the greatest adventure of their lives, as they attempt to navigate the big hurdles in the path of fulfilling their dreams.
Based on Chetan Bhagat's bestselling novel "The 3 Mistakes of My Life", Kai Po Che (meaning a triumphant yell in Gujarati uttered when flying kites) is an unforgettable ode to friendship and the magical moments one shares with one's closest pals – celebrating festivals, drunken dancing, watching cricket matches together, strategizing on how to catch the attention of the cute neighborhood girl, being there to watch each other's back in troubled times and to celebrate one's successes by screaming "Kai Po Che" with full joy!
Kai Po Che is releasing world wide on February 22, 2013.
