Captain Andrew Russell   
Lagaan: Once Upon A Time in India (2001)  
1893: India is ruled by the British. In a drought-stricken Indian province, the villagers of Champaner are asking for relief from the dreaded lagaan tax: a tax on the farm produce. Faced with starvation, the villagers ask the Maharaja to request relief...and on the way to meet with the administrator of the province, Captain Russell, they mock the cricket game as they pass by the playing field. 

Angry at the villagers' reactions, the ruthless Captain Andrew Russell challenges the local villagers to a game of cricket and the stakes are high: repeal of the smothering Lagaan tax for three years if the local villagers win. But if the villagers lose, the lagaan is tripled.  

But what Captain Russell doesn't know is that upon learning about her brother's bet, his sister (Rachel Shelley) surreptiously teaches the villagers how to play cricket, while falling in love with Bhuvan (Aamir Khan), whose own heart is burning for Gauri (Gracy Singh). 

Highlight of the film is the 80 minute cricket game.
