Synopsis :- In the year 1893, the villagers of Champaner await meeting their Raja outside the British cantonment grounds. They want to ask for an exemption from tax (lagaan) but the Raja is busy watching the British play a match of cricket. A young farmer named Bhuvan incites laughter by mocking the game. This is overheard by the company captain, Andrew Russell, who feels slighted. He challenges Bhuvan to a game of cricket in return for canceling their tax, a bet that Bhuvan accepts.
Despite protests from the village, Bhuvan gathers a few who support him, and together, they crouch outside the cantonment grounds trying to understand the game. Elizabeth, Captain Russell’s visiting younger sister, approaches them, offering to help. She wants to teach them the game so that the match is played fairly. Bhuvan is delighted, and the group starts meeting Elizabeth at grounds outside the village to learn the game. Word spreads in the village and others are inspired to join Bhuvan’s team.
When Captain Russell finds out, he is incensed at Elizabeth. She refuses to stop helping the villagers, hiding the fact that she is secretly falling in love with Bhuvan. Meanwhile, Captain Russell has been ordered by his senior officers to prepare for paying the province’s taxes out of pocket should he loses the match. Back in the village, Bhuvan is struggling to find an eleventh player. At a practice game, he fields a ball that is returned to him by Kachra, a cripple who lives outside the village. As the ball bounces, the spin carries it in another direction. Bhuvan immediately sees value and adds Kachra to the team. He resists pressure again from the villagers, who are concerned over playing with an untouchable (Kachra), and manages to convince them.
On the day of the match, the British bat first and score heftily, Captain Russell hitting a century. They are finally dismissed by Kachra’s excellent spin bowling. When Bhuvan’s team starts batting, they lose quick wickets and are halfway out. Facing defeat, Bhuvan bats steadily and is aided by others in closing the gap to their target. With five runs needed, he hits six runs off the last ball and wins the match for the villagers. As the crowd erupts in celebration, Elizabeth seeks out Bhuvan but turns away when she sees him locked in an embrace with another woman.
Soon, the British cantonment is disbanded and Captain Russell is transferred to Africa. In the following weeks, the villagers watch the departing procession as one caravan stops in front of Bhuvan. Elizabeth steps out to say a final farewell to him. She returns forever to England, carrying an unrequited love for Bhuvan with her. Meanwhile, the farmers of the village revel in the newly invigorated monsoon. As rain pours down over Champaner, they look ahead to three prosperous years without any taxation
