Synopsis
Captain Andrew Russell (Paul Blackthorne) proposes to escalate taxes on villagers in Champaner, which they find beyond their means in face of ongoing draught. Led by Bhuvan (Aamir Khan), the villagers request Raja Puran Singh (Kulbhushan Kharbanda) for his intervention, who only shows his helplessness. This is where that Bhuvan and other villagers witness for the first time, the game of Cricket. His mockery on the game enrages British officers, which results in a bet that would turn the fate of the whole village. The bet is that villagers would be exempted from having to pay tax for three years, should they beat British players in a game of Cricket, failure of which would result in a three-fold hike in tax. Bhuvan accepts the bet much to the dismay of other villagers and faces a daunting task to not only convince them, but also learn cricket well enough to beat the British at their own game.
