With cricket being a religion in india, bollywood had many a times tried to exploit the sport in its content. Not many cricket based movie were even close to being successful at box office, but there were few which just got us bowled.
And when cricket was just not enough, boxing, cycling, football and other sports too made an entry in bollywood. Here are few successful and not so successful bollywood movies based on sports.
One of best hits of bollywood and an oscar nominated movie. Well, after retirement of Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh not included in Indian World Cup team along with Sehwag, Gambhir and Yuvraj, it seems like Indian Cricket Team would soon be in search of Bhuwan and Kachra.
The movie could not stump the audience at all. Went unnoticed at box office.
Doesn't matter if you are differently abled or not, if you are sincere and you've got what it take to achieve your dream then you'll definitely achieve it. This is what the movie teaches us.
Another lame horse in the herd.
Based on Hollywood movie 'Like Mike' starred Zain Khan and Rahul Bose as the leads but the only good part was Kapil Dev's cameo in the movie.
Mandira Bedi you are a great anchor on camera when it comes to host a cricket show but acting is just not for you.
Going against the title, the movie LOST comprehensively. The tagline says from ashes to glory, well the movie went from ashes to dustbins.
Come on man, no one can be dumb enough to not to recognize a girl in a boy's getup. But Shahid went out of the box and pulled up the impossible quite easily in the movie.
With the beauty of Sonal Chauhan and the charm of Emraan Hashmi it was one of the best movie which highlighted the darker side of gentlemen's game.
The tale of love, friendship and not to forget Cricket. Based on Chetan Bhagat's '3 Mistakes of My Life' this was another cricket based movie high on content that just stumped the audience by its emotions.
Family drama + Cricket = Story of every cricket loving guy in India. This is what the movie is summed up as. Went on to do a good business on box office though.
