We've caught cricket fever! Get into World Cup spirit with us at these screenings of the Indian underdog film "Iqbal" (2005).

The only voice he could hear was his own.

"Iqbal, the deaf and mute son of a farmer, has a passion for the game of cricket and seeks the tutelage of washed-up, alcoholic ex-player." - Shital Badshah, letuslead.wordpress.com

"Sports-based themes are rare in Bollywood. Although most Indians are obsessed with the game of cricket, only a handful of films, with cricket as the central theme, have been attempted here. Nagesh Kukunoor's Iqbal not only looks at the sport and the politics that come with it, the film also tells the story of an underdog who aspires to play on the national level. Convincingly narrated and sensitively handled, Iqbal succeeds in touching the core of your heart a number of times in those two hours. Most importantly, 'Iqbal' works because you want the underdog, an 18-year-old deaf and mute village boy, to succeed in his endeavor. The youngster rises from the ashes, faces roadblocks at every step, falls time and again, but gets up and reaches the winning post in the end." - Taryn Adarsh, Sify Movies
