The people of a small village in Victorian India stake their future on a game of cricket against their ruthless British rulers.
Before shooting commenced, actors actually stayed in Champaner's houses for a day to familiarise themselves with their new if temporary abodes. Says Aditya Lakhia who played Kachra: "I hardly speak in the film but my presence is such that I had to live like a Harijan through temperatures varying from four to 40 degrees Celsius."
Guran read my fortune today.
Bhuvan: Really? What's the misfortune then?
Gauri: So cruel? I won't tell you.
Bhuvan: Oh come on.
Gauri: He said I'll put henna on my hands this year - I mean get married.
Bhuvan: That's great! Who's the lucky boy?
Gauri: How would I know? But Guran did say that ...
The game of cricket is a test match. Bhuvan's team can't lose the match if the stipulated time is over. The match should end in a draw.
