      This movie has been a nominee for Oscars in 2001. The credit goes to the director Ashtosh Gowariker who introduced a real cinema to the world on behalf of India with his Lagaan team. Lagaan is nothing but a tax on land collected by the British, from the farmers of a small village in India.

      All scenes depicts nearly 100 years back India where British take advantage of India by collecting

      taxes from Indians. The central theme of this movie is “anything can be achieved by Unity”.

      The concept is like this, the British collects the tax from the villagers in high amounts. But the entire harvest which they yield after facing unfavourable weather with hard work,gone in the form of tax and there is just enough left for food for the farmers themselves.

      So the farmers denies to pay tax. Then British places a challenge before farmers that if they win in the cricket there is no need to pay tax for three years otherwise the farmers has to pay triple the tax.

      This is a challenge between Greedy British who fully aware of criket and Poor Farmers, who even donot know a,b,cs in cricket. Some villagers form as a team and face the British in cricket ground(ofcourse it is like a life court for the ...

      farmers) ,atlast ,the lagaan team with its unbreakable unity, wins the match and save the village from paying Lagaan.

      Thus the Lagaan team has become an inspiration to cricket lovers too. Especially last half an hour of the movie takes audience breaths away.

      Amirkhan’s performance as Bhuvan ,who fight for his birth right and prepares the lagaan team to oppose the British is excellent and Gracy singh as Gowri,a village girl and

      stand besides Bhuvan in achieving what he wants is well done. And the British actress Rachel Shelley’s performance as Elizabeth is unforgettable.

      The movie is musically a big hit. The picturization of songs with melodius music wins hearts of anybody.

      Especially the song ‘Radha kise na jale’ is ever green melody. And remaining songs ‘Mitwa’ ,’Kali megha megha pani to barsavo’ are fantasic.

      In my opinion ,Lagaan is a master piece and boon given to bollywood .

This movie is surely a masterpiece and is really enjoyable. You can watch it with your friends and family. It will entertain you every time when you will watch it.
leonid says :

Aamir Khan was able to clearly play his role this time too. The music is beautiful, just like in many Indian films. The film keeps the viewer in suspense to the end and makes them empathize with the characters.
