CHAK DE INDIA - Go For It!

This is well crafted movie, which will gain by word of mouth publicity (like this one)! The understated manner in which the movie is made, is its strength - no over the top dialogues, no unnecessary side-stories.

This movie is highly recommended for (someone please give these folks free tickets to the movie): The babus, ministers, clerks at - Sports Authority of India, Olympic Association of India, Indian Hockey Federation, Indian Football Federation, The Sports Ministry, Mr Mani Shankar Iyer (Sports Minister), and all the other third-grade sports federations of this country. Mr Priya Ranjan Das Munshi it won't hurt you to go to a nearby theatre too, you have ruined football in this country, and are busy being silly at the I&B Ministry too.

We are staring at a medals tally of 0 Gold, 0 Silver, 0 Bronze in the next Olympics.

Its always easy in movie, tough in reality, tougher to be the World champion and impossible to happen in India. Hope for the best, this time I am expecting more than one Silver in Olympic as India is Transforming :-)

Hey AKD. Thank you for the comment on my blog.

Super fun movie I think. Priya RD Munshi and the likes will never improve. I read somewhere that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting different results. But in the case of us Indians, our insanity is of a different kind. Our expectations remain the same while we want different outcomes. I dont know if that made any sense. Forget changing our expectations, I dont think we HAVE any expectations.

Politicians like PRDMunshi take advantage of providing face and words to our unclear expecations and they are conniving enough to use their power and clout to mould the very same expectations that they seem to be representing. Unless each and every one of us had clear expectations from our politicians, they will never match our expectations. My own vagueness is amazing me today. :-) But I hope some of this made sense.
