Storyline

Edward 'Teddy' Brown lives for his suburban cricket club and his two best friends, Rick and Stavros. But when he realizes that his beloved team mates are moving on and growing up, he's forced to take matters into his own hands and remind them of just how good cricket can be. Rallying a boyhood dream and his own teenage obsession, 35 year old Teddy leads his very ordinary cricket team into the extraordinary heart of India, on an audacious three match tour and a mission to meet cricketing legend, Sachin Tendulkar. While Ted's best-laid plans are brought undone by the chaos of India, stumps fly, friendships fray and a life-changing comic adventure unfolds. The dream tour becomes a nightmare and the men are forced to face the realities of their friendship, confront their fears and Ted learns to move with the changing times. Written by Anonymous

Game tour that turns into a spiritual journey.
29 July 2014 | by (Somewhere in the Cosmos) – See all my reviews

Not so long ago I saw 'Backyard Ashes' and here another Aussie movie about the cricket. It was quite different than that which actually based on the true story of the Australian club team called Abbotsford Anglers. Basically the script was altered to commercialize which originally set in the 2001, in this flick it is the present time. The Anglers travel to subcontinent for a tournament which is labelled as the toughest challenge for any international team in this game. Cricket meets Bollywood, in another way to say CCL meets Big Bash. So colorful movie, you will know from the poster itself. This time it is not strictly for those who know the game because cricket was the part of the story and much more elements in it to enjoy.

Teddy Brown, who is a hardcore cricket fan and as well the little master Sachin Tendulkar's. The interest grown in him since he was a teenager and dreamt to play one day for the national team. Now he's at the late 30s who still believes his dream and inspire by the Tendulkar, who is still playing in his 40. His teammate hints that they are quitting and moving forward in life. But he insists and bring everyone together to tour India for a private tournament. So this trip, which turn into a spiritual journey that make him realize what he's holding has to go and move on in the life.

''This is India. We are all Sachin's brothers.''

A treat for the movie fanatics who love cricket as well, especially the subcontinent fellows. The movie discloses the Indian colorful culture, defines the system of the life and much more that inspires. Travelling in train and auto- rickshaws, foods, street market shopping, interacting with the people of the nation who are obsessed with the cricket, all these bring joy to watch. The clash between Aussie and Indian accents humors are really the highlight. If someone is not finding a way to blend in to have the nice occasion, then that must be pan-Americans. It is easy to enjoy like everyone else if they give a try. With a little Bollywood touch, it also exposes the musical side and ends with a fine track. The song was good which follows like this: I don't like Cricket. Oh, no! I love it. So far one of the best cricket and cultural exchange movie. Good for both these countries.
