Movies made in the Sports genre normally follow a set pattern of sequences leading towards a pulsating high voltage climax showcasing a fabulous win. But not when it’s a directorial venture of CLINT EASTWOOD talking about the tough world of boxing. The multi-talented veteran once again delivers a film which is simply out of the routine, with some exceptionally written characters having their own crushed guilt and passions of living a sportsman’s life. It takes you into those dark corners of fame, name and human nature which have been rarely exploited by any director before in such a hard hitting manner.

Honestly I simply couldn’t predict the shock stored in its final 15 minutes, which truly made me go numb for a few minutes sitting in an unresponsive state. Those few moments strongly made me feel both the pain and relief felt by the two powerful characters in the picture who sadly depart with each other in the most undesired manner ever defined by the destiny itself. And this tragic culmination depicted in the film forces you to rate it among the 10 best movies ever made in the Sports genre all over the world with 3 award worthy performances of Hilary Swank, Clint Eastwood and Morgan Freeman.
The impact of MILLON DOLLAR BABY can also be judged by the fact that it was the last film to be nominated in every major Academy Award including The Best Picture and won four out of them convincingly. Also at the age of 74, Clint Eastwood became the oldest Best Director Oscar winner for his movie, setting a new record. Another worth mentioning fact about its brilliantly adapted screenplay is that it is actually based on three short stories from the book “Rope Burns : Stories From The Corner” which talks about the experiences of long time fight manager and cut-man Jerry Boyd.
So even if you are not a big sports movie lover and haven’t really enjoyed watching this particular genre before, yet I would like to say that, Do watch MILLION DOLLAR BABY as a must, shredding all your doubts………….because its neither about any million dollars nor about any fixed sport. In reality its about life and the spirit needed to live it right till the end facing all its pain and joy.

Lagaan - Chale Chalo - Bobby Talks Cinema.com

Somehow I missed to include this masterpiece in my list earlier. But now as I see the “Unseen Footage” and the Making of this Epic, I am proud to call it an Indian Classic which also made it to the last final nominations for best foreign film eyeing on an OSCAR. Though it didn’t win but still the movie is worth watching for its innovative theme and superb performances from the entire star cast. And a special mention for the brilliant musical score by another Indian Maestro A. R. Rahman, who is making Indians proud all over the world.

“Lagaan”is a result of collective effort by the entire crew headed by Ashutosh Gowariker, the director and Aamir Khan, the lead and the producer of the movie. There are very few movies made in India with the main subject being Sports and “Lagaan”, proudly stands tall in that list at the very first place. It is indeed, the creative vision of these two people which resulted in this not to be missed epic of Indian Cinema.
 
You must have seen the movie but if possible, do see the “Chale Chalo” Bonus Feature documentary on the making of the classic with all the deleted scenes and songs. The documentary shows the pain and discomfort suffered by everyone associated with the movie in its making. It shows the spirit and importance of a good team required for this kind of huge effort. And the climax of “Chale Chalo - The Making” relating to the disastrous earthquake in Bhuj, (where the film was shot) is shocking to see, as many may not even know about it. If you thoroughly enjoyed “Lagaan” then you will love “Chale Chalo” even more. So Just Go For it Now!

If you are familiar with the game of Spelling Bee, then you will surely love this probably the one and only elaborate film made on the subject which deserves to be seen by the whole family especially the youngsters. And in case, you are not aware of the game or contest, then it will be even more informative and entertaining for you since it is surely one of those brilliant concepts formed for the kids, combining both the elements of fun and education together.

The film revolves around a small town girl who wins a big reputed championship and that also by not offending her opponents at the competition, which is rarely seen in such tense events. T
he director beautifully explains what team spirit and sportsmanship should mean to the players of any age and background. He also stresses on the student teacher relationship which should have both freedom and discipline in just the right percentages. The screenplay is tight enough to get you involved after 10 minutes of watching it and you simply keep enjoying the movie asking for more in the end.

Another merit of this must watch flick is the sensitive topic of racism, beautifully tackled in its screenplay in the most subtle manner. The entire star-cast is a real treat to watch, lead by Laurence Fishburne as the teacher. In short, AKEELAH AND THE BEE is one of those few inspirational works, which can and should be shown in schools to boost up the confidence and spirit among the young ones. A pure delight to watch, its an entertaining film for all ages with some valuable lessons of life for the younger generation. Highly Recommended.
