Aamir’s “Lagaan” was a period film with the land tax issue during British rule as its backdrop, “Taare Zameen Par” was about a dyslexic child, and the latest “Delhi Belly” is about three young boys in India’s urbanscape.
The film is minting money at the box office, and has managed to draw a lot of young audience. But Varma is yet to see it.
