Movie 1 – IQBAL

This is my favorite and number one on my list. It is a very simple movie with a very strong message. The movie is directed by Nagesh Kukunoor and produced by Subhash Ghai, The movie launched Shreyas Talpade who played the role of deaf and mute cricket wonderfully well. A must watch movie if you love cricket and a must watch along with your cricket enthusiastic kid.


Movie 2 – M S Dhoni, the untold story

Released in 2016, this is a biographical sports film. It is based on the life of our one of the greatest crickets of all time, the best wicket keeper batsman of the world, the legend, MS Dhoni.

A wonderful direction by Neeraj Pandey and M S dhoni potrayed by Sushant Singh Rajpoot, it is a must watch movie for any cricket lover and MS Dhoni fan.


Movie 3 – Ferrari Ki Sawaari

Third of my list and one of my all time favorites, this is also a very inspiring story and shows a wonderful relationship between father and son. To fulfill his son’s dream of playing at the Lords Cricket Ground, Rusy ( The role payed by wonderful actor Sharman Joshi) borrows a ferari owned by Sachin Tendulkar for a day and then the story becomes very funny. A must must watch movie for any kid with interest in cricket.

Movie 4 – Lagaan

Who dosen’t know about this Amir Khan Starrer movie. This iconic movie was produced by Amir Khan and directed by Ashutosh Gowariker. The movie teaches us that how if people come together can achieve some amazing results. The movie plot is set during the times of pre-independent India where a British officer of the area challenges the villagers to play a cricket match and if they win he will pardon the tax collection from the area for 3 years and if they loose they have to pay double the tax. The villages accept the challenge and they play and win the match. A wonderful movie and a nice plot makes the movie a must watch.

Movie 5 – Patiala House

A wonderful performance by Akshay Kumar, this is movie is a must watch if you have not watched it yet. This movie is all about a young British Indian who dreams of only cricket and hence a conflict between he and his father (played by Rishi Kapoor).
