Inspiring and heartwarming, Nagesh Kukunoor’s Iqbal follows the life of a cricket nut from a remote Indian village and how he overcomes a physical handicap to become a successful cricketer with the Indian cricket team.  It’s one of those films which give you gooseflesh and brings tears to your eyes – perfect for the World Cup season.

A bunch of Indian villagers beat the British Raj. Well, their cricket team at least. Patriotism and cricket come together in one soppy, melodramatic cocktail – just the way we like it.

Kai Po Che!
Three buddies, rugged Gujarat, their love for cricket and a whole lot of drama (communal riots, unfortunately) – Perfect for a lazy afternoon, don’t you think?

Dil Bole Hadippa!
A woman pretends to be a man to join an all-man cricket team. Put your brain on airplane mode and enjoy the ride. Sometimes you just need to have some fun.

If your wife is obsessed with cricket, and you’re wondering why, you might want to watch this movie. The movie is about the lives of three people and how cricket is a common (and disturbing) factor. And yes, one of the couples (recently-hitched Kunal Kapoor and Rimii Sen) have a tough time due to the wife’s obsession with Dhoni. You have been warned.
