Lorai: Play to Live is a 2015 Bengali sports drama film directed by Parambrata Chatterjee. The film stars Prasenjit Chatterjee, Payel Sarkar and Indrasish Roy in the lead roles. The film is about an aging football player named Subir Dutta (played by Prasenjit Chatterjee), who is struggling with his personal and professional life. He feels lost and betrayed when his team owner decides to sell him off to another team. However, he gets a ray of hope when he is invited to coach a young, talented and enthusiastic football team in a small village.

Subir agrees and travels to the village, where he faces various challenges while coaching the team. The team is composed of a group of misfits and lackadaisical players who have no experience of playing football professionally. Moreover, the team members are from an underprivileged background and come from humble beginnings.

Subir initially has a tough time motivating them, and the team lacks discipline and focus. However, he soon realizes that winning matches is not what motivates them but rather, it is the game itself that gives them hope and joy.

With this understanding, Subir changes his approach and begins to focus on developing the team's skills and building their confidence. He teaches them to believe in themselves and the game, and slowly but surely, the team starts to show improvement.

The film portrays the struggles and the transformation of the team as they progress from being underdogs to serious contenders. Along the way, the team faces various challenges such as injuries, personal conflicts, and a lack of resources.

The film also explores the personal journey of Subir as he gradually starts to see the game in a new light. He learns to let go of his past and embrace the present, and his relationship with his son and wife also starts to mend.

In the end, the film leaves a message about the transformative power of sports and how it can turn the impossible into a reality. It is a heartwarming story about perseverance, teamwork, and the human spirit.

Overall, Lorai: Play to Live is a well-crafted and emotionally engaging film that is enjoyable to watch. The performances from the lead cast are outstanding, and the cinematography captures the essence of the beautiful rural landscapes. The film is a must-watch for anyone who loves sports and inspirational stories.
