Disney’s Million Dollar Arm generating buzz in Indian American community

Million Dollar Arm
Perhaps not since Slumdog Millionaire has a movie produced by a Hollywood studio played in the United States with major roles for at least two South Asian actors.

Life of Pi came close, but it can be argued there was really only one major role for a South Asian.

Disney’s Million Dollar Arm stars Madhur Mittal and Suraj Sharma who play two 18-year-olds recruited by a desperate sports agent looking for a star pitcher.

Lacking clients in the United States, the agent goes to India to conduct a reality show competition to find two top athletes he can train to be major league pitchers.


Million Dollar Arm opens May 16 in the United States, but recently played before a largely Indian American audience who came to see a sneak preview.

You can check out an early review here from India West.
