Lessons from the movie lagaan

  1. 1. Presentation onLessons from the movie Submitted by :- Sonam Jain Academic Associate – Marketing Area Indian Institute of Management Indore. Sonam Jain sonu_2805@yahoo.co.in
  2. 2. Prelude It is about Bhuvan and his team, who, against all odds, fight for pride, land and country - and win. Lagaan is about people. Ordinary, average people, who are going about their lives - like each of us. Who, when the moment demands, do extraordinary deeds. It is about the power of a Team - the mutthi ("closed fist"). As a team, they were fighting for the future of tens of thousands of their countrymen against a heartless enemy (the British). They had few resources, and little knowledge of the game of cricket. What they did not lack was fighting and team spirit, and the will to win. They were not playing a game; they were fighting a war. Sonam Jain sonu_2805@yahoo.co.in
  3. 3. Lesson No. 01 Accept the Challenges… When Captain Russell challenges Bhuvan to a cricket match, Bhuvan accepts it because he knows that there is really no option. It is a risk, but without taking risks, there are no rewards. Sonam Jain sonu_2805@yahoo.co.in
