Movie Review

Lagaan (2001)

Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India (2001)

Though Lagaan was a very popular Hindi movie that came early this decade, I haven’t seen it so far. I bought the collector’s edition of the DVD a few years back, but it has been sleeping in my CD rack. Today with the rains in Chennai, I was not able to go out, so I watched this movie.

The first impression anyone seeing the film is that it is an excellent movie must see. Initially, I was worried on how I will sit through for a Three-and-Half hour movie, but the director & actors keep the interest level high all the time. The other significant things that impress you are the brilliant background score by A.R.Rahman, the choreography and the dialogues.
