Lagaan = Lagāna : once upon a time in India by Ashutosh Gowariker( visu )
21 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 854 libraries worldwide
The rains have failed, and the people of a small Indian village in Victorian India hope that they will be excused from paying the crippling land tax that their British rulers have imposed. Instead, the capricious British officer in charge challenges them to a game of cricket, a game totally alien and unknown to them. If they win, they get their wish; if they lose, however, the increased tax burden will destroy their lives. The people are terrified, but one man thinks the challenge is worth staking their entire future on.--sd268
