This story line is somewhat (but not exactly) like a TV series I used to watch on cable in the States called "Resurrection Boulevard" back in 2000.
A family of boxers - 3 sons, I think. The oldest one was injured and so the father began training the youngest son for matches. He wanted to relive his glory days as a boxer through his youngest boy. I can't remember details but that is the outline. I think that TV series did not go beyond a season or two.

The movie is pretty decent!

The boxing-scenes are very well done, one of the finest seen in indian movies.

Worth a dekko!
