  • Summary: Kabir 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?

  1. New wave Bollywood at its best, a Hindi-language film from a Mumbai studio that shows the influence of American and foreign films.

    Shaky handheld lensing, terrific cutting and uplifting music build to a grandstand finish in which the main characters are bound tightly into the physical drama. It ain't subtle, but it packs a punch at a simple emotional level.
  3. 70
    It 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.
  4. 63
    While it doesn't miss a cliche, it also invests every one with vigorous conviction.

    Great movie. Well made. Shahrukh's best performance after his great turn in Swades. The film is made with great flair, style and talent.

    Although not without flaws, it is a brilliant movie. Captivating and immersing from the start. Sha Rukh Khan redefines himself as Kabir Khan. A film not to be missed. Expand
