enthralling, dynamic, entertaining, one of the best

I have seen many Indian movies and I think I am a bit of a connoisseur. I rate Lagaan among the all-time best. I like the historical perspective. It plays on the fanatic Indian love for cricket and places the colonials in fair light. I found the boyish Aamir came of age for his Direction, in complement to his superb acting. I have seen the film 5 times. I feel proud to say that whereas I am not Indian, my wife is and she did not have to force me to see Lagaan.
I would force many people to see it though and they would be grateful for the chance.
Keep it up Aamir and bravo Bollywood.
