This page has additional observations, other than the ones noted in the main review.
The Indian women's hockey team is in need of a coach. Kabir Khan (Shah Rukh Khan) is appointed as the coach. This underdog team is then trained to be able to play in the world championship.
Sincerely, at most times I was too engrossed in the movie to notice or take notes on the little things. Will have more here, hopefully after a second viewing.
- The fluency and ease with which the characters are established, even the most insignificant characters are defined by a line or two given to them.
- The stereotype of Indians not knowing much about people from other states was played out really well - reminded me of a similar stereotype about Americans.
What did not
- All the public/mass media scenes depict hockey as this massively popular game. E.g., kids are shown playing hockey on the street. Now, come on, who are we kidding here?
- Why was Kabir Khan talking to himself outside the conference room of the Hockey Association?
