    Verdict - Must watch

    Fire in BabylonWatch trailerRelease date : September 21, 2012



    If you have any knowledge of the cricketing world, then you would know that the West Indies team of the 70's & 80's had one of the most formidable attacks in the world. Fire in Babylon showcases what went on in making the team, what they had to go through & their eventual triumph.r
    r
    Inspiring, fun & entertaining, this is a MUST watch for anyone who has ever followed the game.r
    r
    The 60's were a rough period for West Indian cricket as they faced racism, bodyline bowling in the Australian series & were looked down upon by the rest of the world. The film delves into their lives & shows us how Clive Lloyd put together the unbeatable team with 4 pacers who could let it rip.r
    r
    The film is crisp, has great music & a brilliant narrative. At no point do you see yourself getting bored and the story of this team is nothing short of thrilling.r
    r
    Director Stevan Riley hits you with a bout of nostalgia and leaves you wanting more at the end of it.r
    r
    To sum it up, Fire in Babylon is an uplifting documentary that is a compelling watch. If theres one movie you'll watch this weekend, make it this one...its unmissable.
