Shiv Shastri, a retired bank officer, relocates to the United States to live with his son Rahul and his family. Shiv is a Rocky movie lover who want to see the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, where Rocky Balboa trained. 

Rahul, on the other hand, is uninterested in Shiv's desire and advises him to concentrate on adjusting to his new life in the United States.
Shiv is first dissatisfied, but he soon begins to make friends in his new neighbourhood. He meets Elsa Zacharia, a housekeeper who is also a Rocky Balboa enthusiast. Elsa encourages Shiv to rekindle his love of boxing, and the two begin training together.

Shiv begins to feel more confident and lively as he works with Elsa. He realises he isn't too old to begin a new chapter in his life. He decides to compete in a boxing match and works hard to prepare.
Shiv is nervous but determined on the day of the competition. He makes it to the finals, where he will face a considerably younger opponent. Shiv loses the fight, but he is unaffected. He's learnt that it's not about winning or losing, but about giving everything you've got.

Shiv Shastri Balboa is a touching story about discovering one's passion and never giving up on one's aspirations. The film is well-acted and directed, and it will undoubtedly inspire you.

"A heartwarming and inspiring film about finding your passion." - Hindustan Times
