The people of a small village in Victorian India stake their future on a game of cricket against their ruthless British rulers.
Aamir Khan personally invited cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar and his wife Anjali to a private screening of the film as he always first shows his films to Sachin. Unfortunately, they couldn't make it.
Hey Gauri! There's only one house in the village with a neem tree in the yard. There's also a big field beside it. There's some chickens, two cows, and three goats. And I know whose house that is! It's mine, you silly girl! One thing before you go. ...
The film although based in the year 1893 shows quite a few British Lieutenants to be clean-shaven. The British Indian Army regulated all commissioned officers to wear whiskers till 1910, so the lieutenants had to wear beards or at least moustaches.
