Dhol and Chak De India - Movie Reviews
I had watched Dhol and Chak De India a few weeks ago, but somehow could not find the time to blog about them....till today. Here are the reviews -
Chak De India - 7/10 - A good sports movie that was purely about sports and winning, without any of the usual melodrama thrown in. Shahrukh Khan plays the role of Kabir Khan, the hockey coach of the Indian women's hockey team. Chak De India is about how the Indian team conquers regional and personality differences, seniority issues, family objections and competition within players to win the Hockey World Cup.
After a long time, I have seen Shah Rukh Khan actually doing some acting, instead of just playing himself in larger than life situations. Among the girls, I liked the character and the acting of the heavy Punjabi hockey player. All in all, a very realistic film.
Dhol - 4/10 - The movie is about four unemployed youth who decide to woo a rich girl hoping she will marry one of them and be their lottery ticket. Unfortunately, the girl is only interested in finding out who the killer of her brother is. The guys then lie to her pretending they know something about her brother's murder. This leads to a lot of so called 'hilarious' situations, which I didn't find all that funny.
The actor who shone the most in Dhol other than Rajpal Yadav was Kunal Khemu. The others were just hanger ons. The music was okay, nothing great. The movie ends with them finding a load of cash in a 'Dhol' (traditional drum) that the girl(Tanushree Dutta) gifts to them before leaving.
