Chak De! India (4/5) -- This movie makes you wonder what took Bollywood so long to cash in on the sports movie genre. Directed by Shimit Amin, this is a perfect sports movie, with a fallen hero and how he coaches and inspires the Indian women hockey team back to victory. Though there is absolutely nothing original, the story is tight and well made. SRK gets his trademark jittery-shaking-crying scenes. The girls are refreshing though. For the first time (?) we get to see some normal looking females doing non-romantic or villainous roles in Hindi cinema. The movie is a good effort and good fun to watch.
