One month to go…. The countdown has begun
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
July 11, 2007
The trailers are out on TV and the countdown has begun to the arrival of King Khan on the big screen for the first time in 2007 and it is as big as it can get. Shah Rukh Khan in a Yasharj banner movie; it doesn’t get bigger in Bollywood. This time SRK is not playing lover boy or Don or any of the roles that he has essayed in his long career. This is something truly different.
Shahrukh Khan
He plays a disgraced national hockey player who takes over as coach of the Indian national women’s hockey team.

Akbar Khan was removed from the national hockey team and pushed into wilderness after being accused of doping. Year’s later the man is recalled after many big names refuse to take up the mantle of the national women’s hockey team coach because of the absolute rut that the sport is in; no one wants to set foot in the swamp. Only one man accepts; a middle aged, tired looking, stubble sporting SRK unlike the smiling energetic, youthful SRK that we are used to seeing on screen. How he takes 15 young Indian ladies to the Hockey world cup is the story of the film.

In case you have not yet heard about such a movie coming up you are certainly in the minority. For the benefit of the people in that minority the title of the film: Chak De India. Simply put this sounds like the Nike logo (Just do it!).

The movie releases on August the 10th and Bollywood eagerly looks forward for their biggest star to deliver the biggest hit of the year. The question is whether the new look, underplayed SRK will be accepted by the fans. So far, anything different has been accepted in 2007, out of the ordinary seems to be the flavor of the year.

One final very interesting byte: a few senior hockey players feel that the release of this movie might just help the national sport regain its lost popularity. How many of you agree?
