"Year 1893, Champaner, A small village in the heart of India"
7 March 2019 | by sahilrocks-19974See all my reviews

I saw this documentary today itself and I must tell you that it was an experience which I will cherish forever. This documentary showcases what actually went through in making a movie worth an academy award nomination. It starts off with the vision of Gowariker and his attempts to convince aamir khan to be on-board with the project. This documentary was made with the very intensity the actual film was made and is captured brilliantly by Sanjay Bhatkal. I was in complete awe after watching what goes through a team of people to go to an isolated place for 6 months trying to bring a script of paper on a celluloid. Hats off to the production team of Lagaan (Lagaanites) of creating a millennial movie which will remain in the hearts of every Indian for generations to come.
