Absolutely enthrallling

This movie is a perfect match of style and story, and while the pace is leisurely, the story totally fills the time and the viewer (at least, the viewers here) is enthralled. Highly recommended.

The Seven Samurai of cricket movies

I'm generally not into sports much, I knew next to nothing about cricket and had no particular interest in the game before seeing this film, but I ended up being surprised by how involved I got in it. I think that the climactic cricket tournament in this film (which takes place during the last hour of the film) has all the intensity and suspense of a good battle scene in a war film. I suppose this is a good example of the saying,"It doesn't matter what a movie is about, only how it's about it." I didn't even mind that it was close to 4 hours long!

If you're new to Bollywood cinema (I've only seen a handful of Bollywood films myself), this isn't a bad place to start.

educational too

Not only is this movie fun to watch, but it's a good way to learn a little about cricket if you don't know any. (Or at least, I have better questions to ask the cricket fans I know.)
