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!
