Storyline

India has lost two of the three one day internationals against Australia, and has lost all hope of winning the three-test series, mostly due to the dismal performance of the arrogant Cricket Captain, Ranvir Singh alias Ronny. Ronny is also the brother of the Chair of the Cricket Selection Committee. This Committee decides to replace Ronny with a newcomer named Sunny, whereupon an embittered Ronny seeks revenge. 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 the Indian army withdraws its peace-keeping force in the region. The Chair of the Selection Committee takes control as the Director General of Police, launches an investigation, and arrests 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 remote control is in the hands of Ronny - who ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

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.
