Dream before Wicket
Cricket runs as a common thread through Indian social, economic, political and religious life, and as such is a fitting subject to close this four-part series of films on national sporting identities.
The game is played everywhere, from pavements to vast stadiums. And even the pavement cricket draws a crowd.
A mother brings her son to one of the teeming early-morning coaching sessions in a Bombay park that gave birth to such players as Tendulkar and Kambli. "I've come to make him a cricketer," shesays. "I wanthim to make something of his life."
In its cutting between the stadium and the street, the film stresses the all-pervasive relationship between the nation and its game.
