Storyline

This Committee decides to have a new-comer named Sunny in place of Ronny, which leaves an embittered Ronny, swearing to kill Sunny at any cost. The third match is being planned in the Wankhede Stadium in Bombay, and a group of terrorists announces that they will blow the stadium up with the estimated 50,000 spectators, unless and until the Indian army withdraws it's peace-keeping force in the region. The Chair of the Selection Committee takes control as the Director General of Police; launches an investigation; and does arrest the culprits, who have been employed with the Stadium for many years. But the problems are not over yet, for the stadium is still packed with explosives, and the ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

2 March 2005 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Not exactly one of my favorites considering this was one of the zillions of movies Dev Anand has directed. But what was interesting about it was it being designed around cricket. Not many movies are produced in Bollywood which tackle this genre, Lagaan being an amazingly sole exception considering it made it all the way to the Academy awards. Awwal Number was probably one of the first few movies that pioneered the theme of sports based jealousy, passion, love and the spirit. Aamir still getting hold of his acting prowess with an equally new Aditya Panscholi made for an interesting movie. Throw in an evergreen Dev sa'ab making sure things ran smoothly and you have "Awwal Number". The songs were pretty forgettable but what stayed was the memory of a movie based on Cricket.

5 points out of 10 for being different in the theme.
