Seeing kalaripayattu, not as popular as other Martial Art forms, the students of kalari gurukulam came up with the idea of Dhehi. Our goal is to bring this martial art form and its rich culture into the silver screen and spread kalaripayattu across the borders.

Country’s first kalaripayattu Film ‘Dhehi’ is now produced based on the life and achievements of a Kalaripayattu artist and a Kalari guru.

Dhehi Synopsis.

Dhehi inspire girls to have a vision of what they want to achieve and work towards attaining it. Body is an unbiassed tool to achieve that goals. Divya is a young 17-year-old girl aiming to set an example for the younger generation, a young girl who dreams big to fly high in life. But crime can strike from nowhere, especially in today’s increasingly violent world. Dhehi is the life of a girl whose wings are brutally hurt by her society. Is it a hurdle being a woman? Will Divya overcome this situation? Will she come back to her peaceful life? How much can a Kalari Guru help? Dhehi has the answer!!
