I LOVE THIS MOVIE! Ever since I was probably.. 13, I remember seeing this movie on that random film channel we used to have and I'd love committing my Saturday afternoons to this nearly 4 hour movie.
That's right - 4 hours.
Worth it? Absolutely.
Talk about feel-good, well-done, beautiful Bollywood. Great storyline, developed characters, fun songs. The colors are all stunning, choreography is on point, and.. well.. it's just a great movie.
The story is basically about this small village that has to pay increased taxes to the British (takes place in the late 1800s) and when no rains come, a challenge is presented by one man - increased taxes or none at all... over a cricket match.
Simple, sweet, gets the job done. Sports, romance, singing, dancing, this thing has got it all.
I highly recommend watching this if you have the time (Even if you don't, watch it in installments.. so much fun!) and want a really entertaining feel-good movie.
PLUS it's on Netflix right now! So get on it!
