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.
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.
Shah Rukh Khan is outstanding -- it's a performance that is comparable and at points even more internalised than the one in Swades.
Great performances by a bunch of unknowns, a gritty pace and a marvellous restraint make Chakde India an unbridled ode to patriotism without any hysterical chest-beating.
This is exceptionally well written (Jaideep Sahni take a bow), well acted and put together.
The plot contains no surprises, but the matches are deftly shot and the film is a buoyant expression of girl power.
[It's] proudly old-fashioned but still manages to feel fresh.
Indian underdog sports film will make American girls cheer.
While the tale of the sporting underdog is hardly new, Jaideep Sahni's screenplay offers a rare look at a popular Indian sport often overshadowed by cricket.
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.
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.
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.
