Oscar Movie: Lagaan



Lagaan is one of the best movies ever made in Bollywood. It became the third Hindi language film to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film after Mother India and Salaam Bombay. The movie was directed by Ashutosh Gowarikar. It starred Aamir Khan and Gracy Singh in the lead pair with Rachel Shelley, Paul Blackthorne and A. K. Hangal in supporting roles. The film gathered critical acclaim and awards at several international film festivals, apart from winning many Bollywood awards.
The movie is set in the Victorian period of the British Raj. It revolves around the peasants from a barren village who are oppressed by high taxes imposed by the British. When the peasants attempt to persuade the officers to reduce the taxes, the officers put forth a proposal to the peasants. One senior officer offers them to cancel their taxes for three years if their village team beats them at cricket. After accepting this proposition, the villagers face the difficult task of learning the game and playing for a result that will change their village's destiny.
