This Ashutosh Gowariker film is set in 1893 in a small Indian village. The locals are burdened by high taxes, which have been levied by the British Captain andrew Russell (Paul Blackthorne). Much to their surprise, the arrogant Russell challenges the Indians to a cricket match. He says that if the locals win, then their taxes will be cancelled for the next three years. If the lose, they will have to pay thrice the amount of their normal taxes. Bhuvan takes up the challenge without consulting others. Having never played this alien game before, the villagers are furious at him. In Lagaan, Bhuvan tells everyone that it is essential to fight against the British rule. He then starts training the villagers, most of whom are reluctant to play.

Russell's sister, Elizabeth, secretly teaches them the rules of the game. Though Bhuvan and Gauri are in love, Elizabeth falls for this Indian villager. The woodcutter, Lakha (played by Yashpal Sharma), is also in love with Gauri and wishes to discredit Bhuvan. He joins the cricket team but becomes Russell's spy. The second half of Lagaan focuses on the match between the villagers and the British officers. Things don't go as planned for the Indians. With the ball not spinning, catches being dropped and wickets not falling, Bhuvan is in deep trouble. The narration by Amitabh Bachchan adds to the thrill of the movie.

The songs by A R Rahman, like Ghanan Ghanan and Radha Kaise Na Jale, are still popular. Rated as U (Universal), this DVD has a runtime of 215 minutes and has been released by Excel Home Entertainment.
