Iqbal is a highly-acclaimed film directed by the Hyderabad-based Nagesh Kukunoor, with cricket as its background. The movie hovers around Iqbal (Shreyas Talpade), a deaf and dumb 18-year-old from a small village, who is crazy about cricket. Born in the tiny town to a poor farmer and a cricket-obsessed mother, lqbal wants to be selected and tutored by a renowned cricket coach, played by Naseeruddin Shah.

Unable to attend any kind of school, Iqbal spends his time grazing his father's buffaloes (all of which are named after famous cricket players), bowling on a makeshift pitch by himself, and dreaming that one day he would make it to the national team with his coach's help. His 10-year-old sister adores him and serves as his voice and partner in almost everything.

Even though Iqbal's father hates cricket and believes it a total waste of time, his mother helps him to her best. Finally, with the coach's initiative and dedication to see his student succeed, Iqbal gets selected to the national team as a lead bowler.

Kapil Dev plays a guest role in the movie, showing up for a couple of minutes. The movie is brilliantly made, but could not make it big at the BO. But Kukunoor was highly appreciated for his conviction in selecting a topic of this nature.

The entry today is by invitation only. Please contact 2339-2602 for further details.
