Another movie starring Shweta Prasad! :dance
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0453729/ (IMDB rating 8.6 959 votes)

India - a Nation obsessed with cricket - and it is not very often one comes across anyone
who loathes cricket as much as farmer Anwar Khan, who feels that it is a waste of time
watching some grown men playing, not only getting paid, but costing the nation millions
of lost work hours. His family, especially his wife, Saida, does not quite agree with him.
As a matter of fact, she broke water when watching a cricket match with a TV set perched
on a branch of a tree with almost the entire village in attendance. This is how Iqbal was born,
followed by the birth of his sister, Khadija. Iqbal, though deaf and dumb, shared his mother's
and sister's passion for cricket, he would tend to the buffaloes, who though all female, had
been named after male cricketers, including Kapil Dev. While tending to them, he would stop
and watch youngsters being trained by the renowned Guruji. When Guruji finds out about
Iqbal's interest in the game, he recruits him, but lets him go when a dispute flares up between
his top pupil, Kamal, and Iqbal. A disheartened Iqbal finds a new mentor, in the form of alcoholic
farmhand, Mohit, who reluctantly decides to tutor Iqbal, so much so that Iqbal qualifies to play in
the Andhra Pradesh team for a Ranjee trophy match. The match is won, and a way is cleared for
Iqbal to find a place in the Indian team. Then all chaos breaks lose when Anwar refuses to let
Iqbal indulge anymore in this waste of time, and asks him to go to the farm and help him. But
Mohit is able to convince him to change his mind, only to find out that Guruji, who favors his star
pupil Kamal, for a place in the Indian cricket team, and will do his utmost to foil any attempt by
Mohit to promote Iqbal.

Shweta's character features prominently in the film since she uses sign language to help her brother Iqbal communicate.
She's a pretty good actress!
