India - a Nation obsessed with cricket - and it is not very often one comes across anyone who loathes cricket as much as farmer Anwar Khan, who feels that it is a waste of time watching some grown men playing, not only getting paid, but costing the nation millions of lost work hours. His family, especially his wife, Saida, does not quite agree with him. As a matter of fact, she broke water when watching a cricket match with a TV set perched on a branch of a tree with almost the entire village in attendance. This is how Iqbal was born, followed by the birth of his sister, Khadija. Iqbal, though deaf and dumb, shared his mother's and sister's passion for cricket, he would tend to the buffaloes, who though all female, had been named after male cricketers, including Kapil Dev. While tending to them, he would stop and watch youngsters being trained by the renowned Guruji. When Guruji finds out about Iqbal's interest in the game, he recruits him, but lets him go when a dispute flares up ...Written by
Naseeruddin Shah won the National Award for the Best Supporting Actor category for this movie. See more »
At the start of the movie when Iqbal practices bowling in the field, he closes his eyes and imagines a crowds roar as if in a stadium. He can never imagine this since he has never heard it. He clearly doesn't know what a crowds roar is like and can never have even the faintest idea about it since he is deaf and dumb since birth. See more »

I think Iqbal is a class apart movie n it deserves awards .I agree that Black was a beautiful movie but just see the simplicity in that film.The cast was just the best:-) 1 Shreyas Talpade was a class apart actor the way he did that role was beautiful.The scene where he cries because he is thrown out from the cricket academy was the best.You Rock! 2.Shweta Prasad really made u laugh n enjoy the movie.Her relationship with her brother was very good. 3.Nasserudin Shah deserved an award for this performance.Simply class apart.But as they say the world is not always fair On the whole the actors n last but not the least our very talented director Nagesh Kuknoor deserve a thumbs up for the movie May your next movie be a bigger hit. lots of luck Nonie
