SHORT-LISTED : BEST FOREIGN-LANGUAGE FILM AT 2002 OSCARS
It's 1895 and the villainous British offer to remove a crippling tax if the local villagers can beat them at cricket. The best film ever made about cricket with blazing song and dance numbers. A Bollywood classic.
|What the Critics say:|
|"A lavish epic, a gorgeous love story, and a rollicking adventure yarn. Larger than life and outrageously enjoyable, it's got a dash of spaghetti western, a hint of Kurosawa, with a bracing shot of Kipling." (Peter Bradshaw - Guardian)|
