This week’s blockbuster represents perhaps the best-known Bollywood film outside of India. It follows one village’s attempt to resist the oppression of British colonial rule in the 1890s.

Featuring superstar Aamir Khan and enough romance, whimsy, drama, and song & dance to satisfy the biggest Bollywood purist, ‘Lagaan’ (Tax) was nominated for a Best Foreign Language Film Oscar for its compelling story of cross-cultural encounters and the persistence and creativity of Indian society under colonialism. Cricket fans also will be particularly pleased.

This is the second movie in the 13th UH Bollywood film series, running every Monday this fall. Watch the trailer here.
