Set in 1893 colonial India, Lagaan narrates the story of a parched village struggling under the weight of high taxes imposed by the ruthless British Raj. Led by the spirited Bhuvan (Aamir Khan), the villagers are presented with a seemingly impossible challenge: win a game of cricket against their arrogant British rulers.

With no prior knowledge of the sport, they must overcome immense odds, mastering the game and their own destiny. This epic tale of resilience, unity, and the fight for freedom resonated with audiences worldwide.
