Chak de India – Movie Review
Chak de India is movie about a hockey player Kabir Khan whose team loses the match when the crucial penalty point is in his hands. The media and the public don’t leave him for this and put forth a coloured picture of the scenario. As an aftermath of all this, he has to leave his captaincy and leave the game.
After seven years he returns into the field of hockey again but, this time as a coach of women’s national hockey team. He comes back with the determination to prove himself right by making the women’s national hockey team win the gold medal his team had lost seven years back. He wants to eliminate the very factors that resulted in the loss of match by his team mainly being the lack of team spirit and placement of team objectives above individual objectives. The women’s national hockey team is a very weak and non performing team. His co players , who are his well wishers , suggest him not to put his hand into a battle which is already lost and once again give others a chance to malign his name but, he is determined to take this chance to prove himself. His role as a coach is wonderful.
The movie shows how he builds the team and motivates and prepares them to win. In the end he meets his aim and leads the Indian women’s national hockey team to win the match.
Note: The movie is based on real life story of Mir Ranjan Negi who was a field hockey player and former goalkeeper of the India national field hockey team.

• Building of a wonderful team can be learnt from this movie.
• While working in a team , the welfare and objective of the team is above the individuals.
• Good coaches can do wonders for the team as well as individuals.
