I recommend this movie to anyone, Indian or non-Indian. It's a wonderful, entertaining, suspenseful, and engaging film to watch. This movie has marked a milestone in Indian cinema. The dialogue, storyline, and visuals are amazing. Perhaps the director Ashutosh Gowariker and Aamir Khan explained the movie the best...''It's not a movie about cricket. It's a story about the human spirit.'' I guarantee that you will not be disappointed! The subtitles are an excellent addition. Rachel Shelley and Paul Blackthorne give the best hindi dialogue I have ever heard. Aamir Khan, Gracy Singh, and the entire Cricket team of 'Lagaan' give performances you won't forget. A.R. Rahman's soundtrack for the movie will leave you amazed. This is a MUST SEE!
this was my first bollywood movie & it was worth it. it is very expressive and moving, music and the storyline is amazing.
I find myself unable to turn a way from the screen for a second when watching this film. The music is uplifting and catchy. Although I feel that Gracy Singh's acting left alot to be desired, Aamir Khan's performance was flawless. Which more than made up for it! The film is colourful and entertaining but at the same time educational. A huge thumbs up!
This one is a slam dunk for the Best Foreign Film Oscar. If ever a movie a captured the spirit of India, the incredibly rich diversity of its people and the long-forgotten magic of true romance, Lagaan is it.
LAGAAN is certainly one of the best Hindi movies to come out in recent times. It just goes to prove that Bollywood can make meaningful, interesting, and fun films when it really tries. A story of bloodless insurrection against the British, LAGAAN tells the tale of a group of villagers, led by the strong-hearted Bhuvan (the inimitable Aamir Khan who is just wonderful in this movie), who find the strength and conviction to beat the British at their own game....literally! There's beautiful cinematography, amazing music and picturizations, wonderful performances, and not to mention a game of cricket that will surely have you cheering for the underdog. Don't miss this movie! You won't regret it.
This movie was superb. There was great comedy, drama, and the Indian dancing was absolutely enjoyable to watch. A must see movie. Fascinating to watch.
I watched this movie once, skeptical because I usually can't stand subtitles...It was so amazing, I just watched it again. And now I'm going to buy the DVD. It is a very satisfying movie. It's got the love story, the suspense, comedy, a variety of entertaining characters, great music/dances and a eye opening lesson in Indian culture and history. This movie will keep you on your feet and captivated all throughout the movie...just make sure you can take a bathroom break, it really does get intense.
It was one of the best love stories i've ever seen it was also very exciting. I also loved the music soo much it was beautiful
This movie is one of the most touching movie i have seen it touches like life of people who want's freedom and what they can do for their freedom. You see this movie once and you will always remember it
Esta pelicula hindú es genial, tiene una excelente historia, excelentes actores, la musica y la escenografia está tan bien hecha que es inevitable ser capturado y transportado a la trama misma. después de verla una te aseguro que querrás verla otra vez.
This movie was an all-around great one, and it speaks to people of all nationalities. The story and actors are captivating, and the music is superb. It is such a joy to listen to, and it will have you singing and dancing to it long after the film is over. Gracy Singh did a wonderful job on this one.
i loved this film. i found it to be really good and good for all americans to watch.
this is truly an incredibly moving movie, it was funny,and beautiful, the english woman was at times ''acting'' cheesy but the rest of the film covered that like icing.if you love anything about india you have to own this movie. and if you dont, then you will after watching this film.
Very good movie! A must see!
I love this movie a lot . It is a great movie . This movie is one of the best . It tells a great story . This is a movie for EVERYBODY !!!
The picture indeed is an epic and master piece from Bollywood. It reflects their determination to accept challenge from collonial rulers, prepare themselves for the game which they had never played and win. Villager's love for each other, faith in God and their leader has aptly been depicted. The picture is worth seeing and has lot to offer not only to Indians but to the entire world. Missed Oscar from fractions but still rated as one of the best films. Amir and his costars have lived their performance.
Very good music, very good story, who one 7 filmfare awards for Best movie, best actor, best director, best lyrics,best male and female play back singer, best music. abosolute great perfomance
Great movie that shows sincerity and perseverance can win in the end. Every scene is symbolic and you understand the true culture of diversified India. It is not about the British dominating India but about how India was able to put aside their differences and age old beliefs to unite together as one against the British. This movie has a little something for everyone, romance, comedy, action and drama.
This is a story set in 1896 India, deeply under British colonial rule. A group of poor villagers in Northwestern India, battered by three years of drought, learn to play cricket to meet a challenge. The challenge was thrown by the local British military administrator: ''beat my team of seasoned cricketers, at cricket, and I'll forgive your taxes (called 'lagaan' in the local vernacular - hence the title.) If not, you pay triple taxes, rain or no rain.'' The story unfolds as this well-chosen and well-acting cast of characters (of every walk of Indian village life) overcomes odds unfathomable by Westerners to a surpising results. And, you will never believe where the cricical help comes from! An extra treat is the nicely composed and tightly executed music.
The best hindi movie after SOLEY.
Must see film.
couldn't give 6 stars.... excellent
Though this movie is almost four hours I was still engrossed the entire time. Its hearfelt, honest performances and entertaining Indian music will leave you wanting more. It also teaches great lessons about accpetance, faith, and perserverance that will keep you thinking.
Hollywood can only wish to produce a movie as extraordinary as Lagaan. This movie is an absolute MUST SEE!!! This movie and soundtrack are worth owning.
Lagaan is a true Indian Entertainment that's made to Academy nomination. Its the only Indian smash hit in over 40 countries. If one is interested in entertainment beyond Hollywood, then this is a must. Most of all its True Story.
