turning point

Saw ‘iqbal’ tonight. It was inspiring. The turn of incidents in the protagonist’s life so happen that he loses all hope of fullfulling his deeply cherished dream-of bowling for the indian cricket team. In despair, he burns the pictures of cricket-bigs from ‘starsports’ that he has collected over years. But just then his eyes fall on a line from a piece of paper in the fire, “things are difficult but not impossible”. It stirs him up. He hurriedly saves that paper. It carries a group photo of a winning cricket team. He discovers that a person in that group is actually the drunkard in the neighbourhood whom he knows very well (enacted by naseeruddin shah). The story takes off from there to a happy ending.
