MILLION DOLLAR ARM
American baseball agent J.B. Bernstein (Jon Hamm), whose career has been overshadowed by local sports competitors, is inspired to stage a reality sports series in India in an attempt to attract proficient cricket players. Through the contest, Bernstein enlists Rinku Singh (Suraj Sharma) and Dinesh Patel (Madhur Mittal) and brings them to the United States to train with baseball coach Tom House, with the intent of ultimately having the cricketers become contracted by a Major League Baseball team. During their stay, Singh and Patel adapt to an American lifestyle while under the care of Bernstein, who is simultaneously shaping his own personal life. The film is based on a true story.
