We often hear film industry people saying, "If Gadar and Lagaan can do well on the same day, two films can easily co-exist on the same day." Aamir Khan's Lagaan and Sunny Deol's Gadar created history and today the industry celebrates 20 years of 'Lagaan' and 'Gadar'.

Lagaan was the film that showcased the light on the 'Lagaan' system in a small village whose inhabitants, burdened by high taxes, and several years of drought, find themselves in an extraordinary situation as an arrogant British army officer challenges them to a game of cricket as a wager to avoid paying the taxes they owe.
