I went to see Chak De India only because my husband wanted to see it....and now am happy he did! Its one of those few movies that makes u laugh and cry with the characters, makes u a part of the action, make you feel good! One of the things I really liked is the fact this is not a run-of-the-mill movie - no heroine, no out-of-place, filling-a-gap songs, no typical villans, no fight sequences and best of all no stupid graphics!!
There's a similar old war time movie called Victory, based on football. Its stars a lot of ppl including Pele. The story is about how 11 prisoners held by the Nazis in Germany plan their escape in the guise of playing a game of football.
In bollywood, there are very less movies based on sports theme, and even more less with no songs, no heroines. So this movie is a real treat to watch. Plust points include great casting, good acting by Shah Rukh, simple storyline. I thoroughly enjoyed it and wont mind another go at it!
