The name may sound dubious and association may be surreptitious as well. But do not take LAHORE on its face value. It has got no political connotation, but indeed politics in sports and the manner in which the business of sports is run is the USP of the movie. It is for the first time that on the Indian screen involving Indian actors a film has been made whose content revolves around kickboxing. Yes, you read it right, Kickboxing, the sports of the modern times that is associated with rush of adrenalin for the fans as also the players is the central theme of LAHORE.

History of Indian cinema is replete with examples that whenever the content is a sporting event and it is woven nicely into the story line, it endears the audience and scores bull's eye at the box office. With release of LAHORE just a week away, it provides an opportunity to revisit the successful films that have used a discipline of sports as the content.



NAYA DAUR: It was really the first film where the race between man and machine, between have and the have-nots and between the proletariat and the bourgeoisie class was built into the climax as the sporting event. Still when the film is shown, there is not a single viewer who does not experience rush of adrenalin.
