Chuck De....

Chak de... Ho chak de India... Chak de.. Ho chak de India....

The songs blaring all over the place.. On each and every radio station i tune into... (Thank God.. a relief from the usual Himesh stuff!!) and on every music channel on the idiot box...

SRK... the Bollywood icon, with a gang of 16 girls.. rocking the Astro-turf with... (ahem) Hockey sticks!!
This is supposed to be a boost to the game of hockey in India... a country in which we Eat cricket, drink cricket, Breathe cricket... and also we Shit, pee, burp and Fart cricket... and Stink of cricket...
Hockey is our national game... err... was is supposed to be "was our national game"?? well who the fuck cares?? Its cricket that we live for...

Dhyaanchand who??? I know even the size of Sachin Tendulkars Underwear... thts the response u'll get from the teens of today...

Cometh the World cup disaster... the public once again goes beserk.. Fuck cricket and the cricketers!! We need to improve other sports.. hockey, tennis, etc etc... we need to bring those sports back to their helm...
And then this Movie...

SRK says... This is a movie about a Muslim guy, coaching an Indian team, of 16 girls.. in a game of hockey...
Has all the bollywood masala right??

I saw the making a couple of days ago.. It was nice to see all the girls putting in all the hard work... from learning hockey skills from none other than Mr. Dhanraj Pillay... to slogging it out in the acting schools..
Mr.Dhanraj Pillay said... u can call me anytime of the day or night , and i'd surely come to help those girls...
That was the same Dhanraj whom the World had seen on national TV channels, with teary eyes, saying that he has made a mistake by playing hockey, in a country where noone cares for any other sport , except... well... cricket!!

Maybe the times are changing.. i thought... This movie will surely, make at least "SOME" impact on the minds of the concerned people... and give a boost to the game of Hockey, in general...
Special free screenings were held for women's hockey teams...
SRK personally had flown over to London for the World premier... (and he was seen at the Oval during a test match!!)

I went for the movie with loads of expectations... i'm not a fan of SRK, but the movie was pretty good...
One scene in which theres a brawl between the girls and a group of men in Mcdonalds... a guy tries to sneak up behind a girl and tries to hit her with a cricket bat, when SRK stops him and says...
" Mard ho to saamne se waar karo... Humaari hockey mein Chhakke nahi hote...."
and the entire theatre goes up in an applause and laughter...

wow...
I reached home.. and was pretty satisfied... I could see an inkling of hope for the Indian Hockey... maybe they'll get good sponsors and good astro-turfs for training...
I switched on the tv.. ESPN channel...

Chak de.. Ho chak de.. India..... chak de.. ho chak de India....
SRK : Be there to support ur team for the 20-20 cricket World cup in South Africa!!



(P.s.... We still eat, drink, breathe.. and shit,pee,fart cricket!!)
Chuck De India!!
