Chak De! India is a 2007 Indian sports film. It tells a fictional story about the Indian womens national field-hockey team, which was inspired by the teams win at the 2002 Commonwealth Games, and explores themes such as feminism and sexism, the legacy of the partition of India, racial and religious bigotry, and ethnic and regional prejudice. The film stars Shahrukh Khan as Kabir Khan, former captain of the Indian mens national field-hockey team. After a disastrous loss to Pakistan, Khan is ostracized from the sport and he and his mother are driven from the family home by angry neighbors. Seven years later, to redeem himself, Khan becomes the coach of the Indian national womens hockey team and aims to turn its sixteen contentious players into a championship unit.
