Dahavi F is a story of school kids from 10th standard 'F' division. They are branded as brash & hoodlums. Many of them are from economically backward class of the society and are earning & learning. The education system recognizes just the marks in the exams and no other virtues, skills or arts! The 10th F kids fed up with the discrimination, break into school and destroy the school property. The school administration chooses the obvious solution ofthrowmg them out of school. GaneshDeshmukh (AtulKulkarni), a young, vibrant school teacher on the one hand confronts the discriminatory approach of the school administration based on grading system; on the other puts a challenge before the 10th F boys to channelize their anger in a positive way.
