Shimit Amin's Bollywood sports drama Chak De India stars Shah Rukh Khan as a coach for a girl's hockey team. He wants nothing more than to do his country proud by having the team be successful. One of the players, Vidya (Vidya Malvade), must convince her stern parents that she should play on the squad. Eventually the team travels to Australia in order to contend for the World Cup. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
"Indian underdog sports film will make American girls cheer."
‑ Carrie R. Wheadon, Common Sense Media
"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."
‑ David Chute, L.A. Weekly
"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."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"A patriotic heartwarmer that scores some old-fashioned entertainment goals despite its flaws."
‑ Derek Elley, Variety
"Director Shimit Amin and his cast bring considerable conviction to familiar characters and situations."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, Film Journal International
