One of SRK's best

Great performances by a bunch of unknowns, a gritty pace and a marvellous restraint make Chakde India an unbridled ode to patriotism without any hysterical chest-beating.

This is what teamwork is all about.

SRK leads hockeybabes to glory

This is also a return to glory for Shah Rukh Khan, the superstar doing excellently as he tackles a cast with (almost) entirely deplorable acting chops and makes you believe.Khan, of course, is King. This is a bravura performance, a gritty drive by an actor who clearly has sport in his blood. The fit...(more)

Director fits in strong comments

Auspiciously, the director fits in strong comments on national unity, gender equality, secularism and team spirit.Shah Rukh Khan is outstanding � it�s a performance that is comparable and at points even more internalised than the one in Swades. He carries the proverbial burden of the project on his ...(more)
