Product Description

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.

     Inspirational !!! 30 August, 2013 On Junglee.com
    Chak de india! (means Go for it, India!!) is feel-good underdog sports movie featuring girl athletes selected from all over India. The team under the inspirational mentorship of their coach overcame sexism and some racism to compete and excel.You don't need to know much about the technicality of the field hockey to enjoy this movie. Loved the song "Chak de india" sung by Sukhwinder. One of the very few movies where Shahrukh khan impressed as an actor.

  2.  A Tale of Patriotism and Sports 11 August, 2014 On Junglee.com
    Kabir Khan is the captain of the Indian Hockey team. But after he loses the penalty shoot in the India vs. Pakistan World Cup, rumors related to religious bias spread and he is forced to leave the team. 7 years later the women’s hockey team is desperately in need of a talented coach. Enter Kabir Khan whom no one has seen or heard from in 7 years. He single handedly decides to take upon the role to train and coach the team of sixteen young girls. Before he can even move on to coaching hockey, he faces the hard job of fostering team spirit within the bunch of girls hailing from different states across India. Chak De! India weaves a beautiful story of unity in diversity and working towards achieving a common goal.
