Critic Reviews for Chakde! India

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (4)

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.

The film's greatest merit is its commentary on sexism in India. As it should, Chak De! India gives the women, in the closing credits, the last word.

Top Critic

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.

Top Critic

This is exceptionally well written (Jaideep Sahni take a bow), well acted and put together.

Full Review… | May 4, 2015

The plot contains no surprises, but the matches are deftly shot and the film is a buoyant expression of girl power.

Audience Reviews for Chakde! 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.

Heartwarming, but more like Boring.

Super Reviewer

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.
