"[This] inspirational sports drama shoulders an unusually heavy thematic load, including the quest for personal redemption of a disgraced athlete, second-rate treatment of women's teams and the need for modern India to set aside inter-state and -faith rivalries in favor of loyalty to a united nation." [Cliche-laden], it also invests every one with vigorous conviction." - Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide 3.5 stars
i've always been a sucker for 'coach inspires good for nothing team' films and this was no different. particularly loved the way it was filmed, unlike most bollywood films. also, shahrukh khan was brilliant and so were the young ladies!
