CHAK DE! INDIA has become the mantra of our nation today, having made a powerful impact on many lives. In fact, it has taken over where the 'Gandhigiri' fever left off. It's a straightforward and hard-hitting film that has captivated audiences and has taken the national game of Hockey and its players to a higher level of recognition. Today however "Chak De" is not only referred to in the context of hockey but any sport in which India excels. Riding high on its recent achievement of the best film award at the fifth Australian Indian Film Festival (AIFF) in Sydney, the movie has already achieved cult status amongst the nation's youth.
