Movie Review-“Chak De India”
Finally and Finally, the Indian cinema is ready to tell the world that it has something different to show to it. Movie “Chak de India” is also one such move in this direction. This film has silently raised many matters which are faced by our games, women and Peoples of minority. This movie is about Hockey, about women and about Indian minorities. This film highlights how all three of them are suffering in India. Hockey is ailing, women are victimized and minorities are termed non-patriotic.
Hockey and India have great associations with each other because both of them have given something to the other. India was once an undisputed champion of this game and all this is visible from the golden tally of India in Olympic Games, where India is only able to secure gold medals because of this game. However, today situation has drastically changed and India is no more a champion of this game. Now, some time even it becomes difficult for us to enter in Olympic hockey Games.
Second in India, we people are still doubtful about our women and minorities. Therefore, making a film on women hockey, which is coached by a Muslim, is a try to highlight much deep rooted problem in the Indian systems. This is a great movie to watch which allow justice to all these matters and has raised them well. This movie will definitely help reviving the state of Indian hockey, Indian women and Indian minorities.
This movie also represents the new age of Indian girls and women, who are fighting for their equal place in the society, which is no way less than any male. This movie is a story of changing India and these types of movies are need of the hour. Shah Rukh khan has performed very well in the role of Indian women hockey team coach. This movie is not a love story, but it is a story of India where we find love for India and love for self respect and equal rights.
All actors have performed well in the movie and at no time during the movie, we get the impression of away from reality. The major liveliness to the movie is given by bunch of new actors, who have even outshone Shah Rukh Khan. Overall this is a good acted and well justified film in all parts, which has highlighted so many weaknesses of Indian cultures, systems and common beliefs. Therefore this movie is worth of at least one time watch. Though, there are some loopholes in the movie but still all this is under acceptable levels.
Overall rating- 3.5 out of five
