The people of a small village in Victorian India stake their future on a game of cricket against their ruthless British rulers.
Lagaan has many parallels with Mr. Shome (1969). Amitabh Bachchan is the narrator in both the movies. The hero and heroine's name are the same, Bhuvan and Gauri. Suhasini Mulay who played the heroine in Bhuvan Shome, played the hero's mother in Lagaan. Both movies were shot in Gujarat.
Let me remind you all of one thing: this is not a game we are playing for fun and entertainment - this is a fight we must win.
When Kachra is batting, the scoreboard in the background shows a score of 314. However, after two more runs have been scored, the close-up of the scoreboard shows the score to be 313.
