It's a warmly-observed and often very touching documentary about the efforts of a tireless Afghani called Taj Malik to have his national team qualify for the 2011 Cricket World Cup.
| Original Score: 3/5
In the context of ample news coverage and more serious documentaries about conflict and politics in Afghanistan, this is a warm and humanising diversion.
Here's a documentary that's amusing, affecting and life-affirming in equal measure.
| Original Score: 4/5
Entertaining, genuinely inspirational documentary that tells a remarkable story and introduces us to some wonderful characters...
Entertaining and enlightening, this sporting underdog doc chronicles the efforts of the fledgling Afghan national cricket side to reach the World Cup Finals.
It is an extraordinary story of the triumph of hope over expectation, with first- team coach Taj Malik Alam, sacked and then reinstated by the duplicitous authorities, as the central character.
An inspiring and charming documentary that will appeal to more that just cricket fans.
