During a terrible drought, a crippled Indian village beg to be exempt from the heavy taxes of their British rulers in order to feed themselves. But the cruel British ruler, instead, challenges them to a game of this mysterious imported sport cricket. If they win, no tax, if they lose, it is doubled. Thus the young hero Bhuvanmust assemble a team, cutting across all castes, and train them in a sport they will prove to have a natural aptitude for.
With an equally stunning soundtrack, this rollicking yarn is a must for all film lovers.
