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.

I think that Shahrukh Khan is phenomenal.

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.

Chak De, India is by far the most authentic, meticulously researched sports movie India has made.

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