Lagaan

Unspooled #301.4 December 1, 2021

Amy & Paul go to bat for 2001’s mega-hit Bollywood sports musical Lagaan! They compare star Aamir Khan to Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt, learn about a key last-minute change to the love triangle plot, and ask what makes the choreography of the musical numbers feel both heightened and naturalistic. Plus: Was Lagaan’s campaign to win an Oscar a success?
