Chak De India!

August 13, 2007

Just back from watching my movie of the month. I love, love, love, loved it! πŸ˜€ Here is a movie about team spirit and the power of oneness. The coach, Kabir Khan, is just that. A passionate coach. In him, I didn’t see the Badshah of Bollywood or the heartthrob of millions. The man, SRK, is epiphany. Whoever might say whatever, he’s the love of my big-screen experience!

Quoting Sudhish:

Shah Rukh Khan, the star, is a delight to watch. As a performer, he’s even better – doubly good. After Sunil in Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa, Mohan Bhargav in Swades, here comes Kabir Khan, who once again lets his eyes speak volumes. Watch him relish his moment of triumph quietly, standing alone and watching his team from far away. That’s the kind of stuff legends are made of. He can choke your heart without saying a single word.

Hear, hear! πŸ™‚

Of all the movies I’ve watched this year (at the theatre), this is the only movie I’ve screamed myself hoarse. My throat still hurts from all the whoops and boos and woots toasting the racy sport action in the movie! That brings me to the team itself – which was pretty damn amazing, by the way! The casting was perfect – girls from all over the country, girls I could relate to, girls who completely lived their part. I especially loved the characters played by Chitrashri Rawat (Komal Chautala in the film), Shilpa Shukla (Bindiya Naik), Tanya Abrol (Balbir Kaur) and Sagarika Ghatge (Preeti Sabarwal).

This is one of those movies that you want to soak up for so long after watching it. One in which there are so many frames where your heart swells with pride and emotion. One in which each frame is so tight with substance and spirited narration. One which you shouldn’t miss watching! Oh, only in the theatre, btw – no fun otherwise!

    @dilip:
    ah! no hindi = you HAVE to have subs πŸ˜› even those of us who knew hindi had some trouble following the various state dialects initially!

    @tud:
    second day, first show? er, too bad. πŸ˜› yeniway, movie is very good – watch, watch!

    @taggy:
    i’m no fan of Karan Johar either, but SRK be the man! πŸ˜€

    …then spend rest of the time hating myself for seeing it
    Hating yourself coz the movie was THAT bad or coz you went against principles and actually saw movie? πŸ˜›

    @Su:
    Tag will be done soon!

    @Gapp:

    “legend= SRK”
    bit too much dont you think ? πŸ˜›
    good that the “legend” has come up with something better than KANK!

  8. August 14, 2007 4:48 AM

    @N:
    dude. SRK IS a legend in his own way πŸ˜› I don’t know if he deserves to be or not, but he is – in th eyes of an appallingly huge number of people! πŸ˜€

    and KANK was a big, big mistake. and it’s pretty much Johar’s fault. he should’ve stuck to his chocolate-boy-movies πŸ˜›

    and also stuck to SRK-kajol πŸ˜›
