Review

With a strong screenplay, Shimit s direction is first rate. He has ensured there isnt even a single dull moment. Every scene makes a impact. Also the feel of the movie is so real that it makes you cheer and pray for the team to win. The background music is brilliant so is the cinematography.

Shahrukh Khan is the heart and soul of Chak De India. He has just delivered arguably his best performances in his career. It fills your heart with happiness to see the actor in Shahrukh in full form. He portrays the role of Hockey coach with a lot of dignity, intensity and charm. Undoubtedly the best performance of the year. The team of girls are exceptionally good. Characters of Preethi and Komal stand out.

Overall, this is a must watch for every Indian. The performances, the screenplay, the direction are just perfect. You cant ask or expect more. Is there a negative? Yup, the intermission.. It makes you restless!! --platform47.com

Chak De India is a beautifully made film that makes you laugh, makes you cry, gives you goose bumps, and stirs up patriotism inside you. It is a film that every lover of good cinema must watch. It is heartening to see Yashraj Films move away from their stereotypical mushy romances and sentimental family dramas. Sports, in itself, is not a popular genre in Bollywood. On top of it, Chak De India has no love angle even though it has Shah Rukh Khan playing the leading man alongside 16 new girls. Despite so many odds, Chak De India turns out to be a riveting film. Reason.... excellent writing (by Jaideep Sahni), well etched-out characters, brilliant performances (by Shah Rukh, Shilpa Shukla, Sagarika Ghatge and Chitrashi Rawat) and, last but not the least, superb direction by Shimit Amin. Chak De India is not just a sports film. It is replete with myriad emotions. And the best part is that Shimit Amin tells the story very realistically, making it all the more believable. He also doesn't bring any unnecessary dramatization into the story. --platform47.com

Product Description

Jo nahin ho sakta hai, wahi to karna hai""...
Kabir Khan (Shahrukh Khan) knows what it's like to come back from the dead. The ex Indian Captain has now come back in the avatar of the Coach of the Indian Women's National Hockey team. A team that exists more on paper and less in reality.The team is a rag-tag bunch of girls with their own agenda. A bunch of girls who have forgotten what it is like to play for the love of the game. Of playing because you want glory for your country. Not because you want a pensioned job or a government flat. They have all forgotten the sharp thrill of just holding the hockey stick, keeping their eyes on the ball and playing for all they are worth. They have played every game but hockey to make sure they get selected every year in the Indian National team. But what does it really mean to play for the Indian National team? To play for India?

""Mujhe sirf ek mulk ka naam sunaai deta hai - India""
The girls have never known the thrilling energy of being Team India. Of giving their all to see their country's name on a trophy. But Kabir Khan, once a captain, now forgotten, does. He knows what it takes to get there. And what it means to return empty handed. This time, he wants to make sure that it's different. He knows there are no second chances. Despite his past, he believes that if only the girls played as one, anything would be possible.Because Kabir Khan believes that it is not that we can't win. It's just that we have never believed we can.Chak De India is the story of a coach's fight of making his team, Team India by overcoming their diverse backgrounds, by learning to use everything that life hurls on them as a secret weapon. It's a story about honesty, sincerity and integrity. A story to remind the nation of its National sport.

Did you know that, once upon a time, India was a perennial world power in the sport of field hockey? That, from 1928 to 1980, India garnered eight gold medals in the Olympics? So you'd think hockey would have a larger following. Instead, cricket reigns today as India's most popular national pastime, with field hockey skulking somewhere in the back. CHAK DE! INDIA, in its own little way, takes one tiny step to change that.

CHAK DE! INDIA tells the inspiring fictional story of the India women's national hockey team, from the rocky formation of its newest crop of members to its triumphant quest for the World Cup. CHAK DE! INDIA also tells the story of one man's redemption. As the film opens, the Women's Hockey World Cup is three months away, and yet India's team still doesn't have a coach. Not too surprising, as it's a team disparaged by most, even by the Indian hockey's governing body, of which one member scornfully states that Indian women are born to cook and clean. Finally, in steps Kabir Khan, a disgraced former player of the India Men's National Hockey Team who, seven years ago, was accused of throwing a championship game to Pakistan. But now Kabir has come out of seclusion to become the India women's new coach. And he's got something to prove. Hell, the whole team has got something to prove. But, first, Kabir Khan has to turn this combative, mismatched, agenda-steeped bunch into a cohesive unit...

In CHAK DE! INDIA ("Go, India!"or, maybe, "C'mon, India!"), Indian cinema refreshingly does away with its habitually overwrought melodrama and giddy romances. What we get is a simple story, told with impact and with restraint. It's one of the most entertaining and highest grossing Bollywood films of 2007. And why not? CHAK DE!

I saw this on an airplane and enjoyed it very much. It's the very involving story of the Indian women's field hockey team. Shah Rukh Khan plays their coach, but mainly the movie is about the young women on the team and how they overcome obstacles to work together. (This is not your usual Bollywood movie--there's no singing or dancing.)

The spirit is similar to Bend It Like Beckham, but I think I liked this movie even better. A great choice for families or anyone who likes an unusual sports story.

A unique movie that highlights the poor state of India's sports and the apathy experienced by sportswomen. This could be among the best SRK performances and lacks all of the usual overacting that is his trademark. The movie proves that Bollywood can make highly entertaining movies and can do without the usual song and dance numbers while carrying a valuable social message. This movie rates 5 stars just for being more inventive than all the other dull-as-dishwater films that Bollywood churns out (mostly). The next movie should be about the abysmal Indian cricket team.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but not your song & dance type Bollywood December 23, 2008
By Lyn
Format:DVD
The other reviews of this movie pretty much cover it. I just want to add that this is a more realistic and thoughtful movie that is more about uniting the regional differences of India into a cohesiveness as a national identity.
I'm not a sports lover yet I found the hockey quite watchable. It isn't so much a sports movie but rather a story about personalities and nation.
SRK is restrained but excellent. He is not really the main focus of the movie though as he steps back and allows the girls centre stage. Given that they are mostly unknowns and not even actors mostly the girls did a great job.
A world match is played out in Melbourne (where I am from) and I must say they made the place look good - made me want to visit it!
While there is background music, this isn't a song and dance Bollywood - no dances and one sporting song.
I benefited in my understanding of India from watching it and it is a movie they can be justly proud of.

I don't know how many people have noticed this, but Preity's sexist and obnoxious boyfriend is practically a double of India's current young vice-captain and star, Mahendra Singh Dhoni-- put their portraits together and you can hardly tell the difference, except that Dhoni's hair is more tousled, his pic was taken in the open air. Which is too bad, because Dhoni is one of the nicest guys around-- always encouraging his players, leading by example, and modest almost to a fault in one-on-one interviews. I am proud to call him a fellow Delhi-wallah, too. If more had been shown of the boyfriend's cricketing talents, we might have thought better of him-- but naah, let him fester in his sexist juices-- Preity's heave-ho of her boyfriend at the end of the movie was well and truly deserved. Chak de, Dhoni.

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVED This Movie August 31, 2008
Format:DVD
What a great film this is -- well-drawn characters, lots of heart, and an ending that is left a little in suspense until the last moment (it could go either way, trust me). It introduced me to Shah Rukh Khan, and having seen several of his films I have to say he's a really nice actor. This movie is not the typical Bollywood; no love story on this one. But a very nice, well-done film that the family can enjoy. I bought this from a source other than amazon, because it was too expensive and not available on amazon. Still, if you can add it to your Bollywood collection, or if this is your first try at a Bollywood movie -- do it! Highly recommended!
