India is definitely Bollywood, ashamed of neither sentimentality nor predictability. Yet its sharp-eyed view of Indian society makes for a world of difference from old-style, sugar-coated Bollywood films.

Weaves its familiar story with some fresh textures and even manages to invest the conflict on the field with a resonance that transcends the tick-tock turnover of the numerals on the scoreboard.

A patriotic heartwarmer that scores some old-fashioned entertainment goals despite its flaws.

Indian underdog sports film will make American girls cheer.

A very familiar, very formula underdog sports movie with nothing to distinguish it from similar, equally slick Hollywood product--except for maybe a Bollywood-norm run time of 150 minutes.

Director Shimit Amin and his cast bring considerable conviction to familiar characters and situations.

Audience Reviews for Chak De! India

Sports film (translation - Go For It, India!) with a difference as disgraced ex-hockey player Shahrukh Khan volunteers to coach the scornfully regarded India womens team for the World Cup. Like BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM, only with sticks, and good Sunday afternoon watching entertainment.

Fantastic movie! Great story plot about the perservance of young women in sports: field hockey. Shahrukh Khan is phenomenal in this movie. Awesome music. Definitely worthy.
