Now heres a movie that teaches you how to make films. The movie is perfect in almost all departments and infact comes close to the classic Sholay in terms of its flawlessness. It is said that good casting is almost half work done and this is where Lagaan scores. None of the charcters (there are so many) looks out of place.Technically the movie is world class whether it is Nitin Desai's set, Banu Athaiya's costumes, Nakul Kamte's sound, Anil Mehta's cinematography and many others.The music by A R Rahman is once again outstanding, he doubles up by scoring the background score which is also brilliant.
Among the performances every actor pitches in with strong performances, Gracy singh makes an impressive debut and Aamir Khan is as usual first rated. Special mention for the foreign actors especially Paul Blackthorne and Rachel Shalley for coming with a fantastic performances.
And off course director Ashutosh Gowarikar for making a masterpiece and Aamir Khan for backing him.
