Chak De!

Finally watched Chak De! India today.

I’d heard for a long time that it’s a good film, yes, but more – that here was a film that focussed on a sport other than cricket; surprise, surprise even more, here was a film that focussed for a change on women’s sport in India.

Yes, it’s about all of these. But in the end, it’s about neither of these. Not Hockey. Not Women’s Sports.

It’s about playing for your team, and putting the team above everything else.

And yes – it’s a wonderful film indeed.
