It is the story of a village, dating back to the Britisher`s rule. The people from the village are supposed to pay some lagaan or tax to the Britishers every year, but there being a drought in that particular year, they are unable to pay the lagaan. Instead, they make a deal with the Britishers on a game of cricket. Their victory would mean no lagaan for three years and if they lose, they`d have to pay three time the amount of their normal taxes.
