From the viewpoint of someone not involved in movie-making, this is a tremendous introduction to the details. The accounts portrayed by Mr. Bhatkal transport the reader onto the sets of the film. The literary efforts are successful, for one feels a part of the action. This is well complemented by the numerous photographs that are included throughout the book. The texts are candid and clear, and even offer insight into the multi-cultural melting pot that was the driving force behind one of the most authentic and successful films ever made, not only in India, but in the world.
In all, a must-read if you are a fan of the film, of the legend Aamir Khan, of Bollywood films, or cinema-making in general. There is something in this for everyone.
Since the writer was part of the team in the entire 1000 day journey, The Spirit of Lagaan captures and narrates how each and every character and scene in Lagaan came to the silver screen. If reading can be believing, The Spirit of Lagaan - embellished with vivid pictures of the making of Lagaan - is a treatise in film making with passion, management and inspiring leadership all coming alive on the silver screen.
