Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India

Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India at Lewannick Community Cinema

Considered to be a modern classic of Indian cinema, LAGAAN is a musical drama which tells the story of a central Indian farming village in 1893.

Lagaan is the biggest-budget Bollywood movie ever, the first to shoot entirely on location and the first to use a large number of British actors - among them the female lead Rachel Shelley.

Awhirl with colour and magnificence - it is beautifully shot - and long but never stretched, this is a film that will contradict every prejudice you might have against that most elusive of worlds - Indian cinema. It isn't subtle, it doesn't want to be, but a better entryway into the alien complexities and designs of Bollywood, or, for that matter, the dizzying rules of cricket (if even stops to clearly explain the vagaries of spin bowling) you will not find.

With an equally stunning soundtrack, this rollicking yarn is a must for all film lovers.
