But, for others, it is an emotion, a reason for living. It is equivalent to religion in the country that produced some gems in international cricket and people worship cricketers like Gods.

Even, they have termed Sachin Tendulkar as the ‘God of Cricket’. It is known that India has many religions and people speaks in various different languages. However, they all can understand the language of cricket.

A movie back in 2005 that took Bollywood with the storm was Iqbal. It was a beautiful story of a deaf and mute guy, who wants to play for Team India. He was financially quite poor and didn’t get much from his Dad. However, his sister and mother were the constant, who stood beside him in his struggling days.

One thing that made that guy different from others was his determination and hard work. In the movie, the director has shown how he gets training from a drunkard, who was a great player of his time. Later on, his coach’s reputation gets him a place in a Ranji team where he shines like a star. The director has also shown a small role of Kapil Dev, who gets impressed with the bowler’s performance in the domestic tournament.

This movie portrayed the power of hustle and focus. And, if any individual has that ability then they can achieve anything in their lives irrespective of what can go wrong. The lead role was being played by Shreyas Talpade in the movie and his coach’s role was given to Naseeruddin Shah.
