Simply loved the movie. And yeah, Shahrukh's different for once in his life. You can see and feel the Shahrukh we saw in Darr, DDLJ....different and briliant.
The good thing about the movie is that it's not a 'Shahrukh Khan movie'. It's a movie about hockey, the spirit, the hardwork, the hurdles and about the people who love the game. I personally felt that the direction was bit raw. But all forgiven as this is the first attempt for such kinda movies. I Salute such directors(likes of DCH, Lakshya, RD
who time and again blow life into the otherwise monotonous Indian Cinema . There ain't no songs, boring love scenes, maar-dhaad. And few of the reel-life players in the movie are real-life hockey players..
The movie builds up like a hollywood movie. The team starts from scratch, then the build-up phase, problems popping up, and the way the team handles it all. You are gonna love it. If you like this, should definitely go for Miracle (2004 release, Hollywood).
A must see,...............coz hockey still runs in our blood!!
