Summary Kabir Khan (Shahrukh Khan), the unfairly-disgraced ex-captain of the Indian National Men's Hockey Team, redeems himself by coaching the squabbling, newly-created, National Women's Hockey Team to World Cup victory against the six-time trophy-winning Australian Women's team. Chak De India begins with the final minutes of a game between the Indian and Pakistani National Hockey Teams. Kabir is responsible for the defeat of the Indian Hockey team when he fails to convert a penalty into a goal, termed a traitor after a photograph of his shaking hands with the head of the Pakistani team is taken. Kabir is accused of taking a bribe to deliberately throw the game in sympathy with his co-religionists. Seven years after his disgrace, Kabir is elected as the coach to lead the Indian Women's Hockey Team. For political reasons, the best female players from each Indian state have been chosen without regard to the position each normally plays. Kabir begins the difficult process of shaping them into a team. He sets a gruelling training regimen. He pushes all the members of the team and they begin to hate him. However, his sincerity and perseverance pays off and he is able to bring them together to play for their country. Chakde! India is the story of a coach's fight of making his team Team India by overcoming their diverse backgrounds, by learning to use everything that life hurls at them as a secret weapon. It's a story about honesty, sincerity, and integrity, a story to remind a nation of its national sport.

Summary "The world knows about Mahatma Gandhi's role in the Indian freedom movement and as a social reformer. But there are large gaps in our knowledge of Gandhi as a person and a family man, particularly the tumultuous relationship with Harilal, his eldest son. Set against one of politically most trublent times in India, the film tells an intensely personal story of a father struggling to resolve the destinies of his country and that of his son. Not to be forgotten is the role of Gandhi's wife, Kasturba, who was caught between the traditional, unquestioning loyalty of a Hindu wife to her husband and her love for the son. Mahatma Gandhi could transform the soul of a nation but could not save the soul of his own son"--Container.
