Lagaan (2001) HOME
This OFFICER wants to make the government a bookie through which he can place his wagers!  -  Jeremy Child as Major Cotton
1 2 3 H  (Top 3 Family Films)

The first Bollywood film in 30 years to record the dialogue while filming took place.  Typically it is post-dubbed.
One of 3 Hindu films ever nominated for  Best Foreign Film Oscars, the others include Salaam Bombay! and Mother India.
Aamir Khan’s international-crossover-worthy performance did not result in him making movies outside his native land.

  After an uninteresting start, this family film for teenage kids and above becomes a winning story about individual gifts, love and a battle for human dignity, centered around a cricket match.


  A cross cultural love story with heartfelt emotions and familiarities


  Spiked with jubilant moments when characters are inspired to individual greatness
