The people of a small village in Victorian India stake their future on a game of cricket against their ruthless British rulers.
A comic book, Lagaan: The Story, along with two colouring books, a mask book and a cricket board game were subsequently released to the commercial market. The comic book, available in English and Hindi, was targeted at children between the ages of six and 14. At the book's launch, Aamir Khan said that they were keen to turn the film into a comic strip during the pre-production phase itself.
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.
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.
