13 Years of Chak De India

Ep 69- Chak De! India

Episode 69 of Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast brings you everyone’s favorite (or is it?) Bollywood sports movie: 2007’s CHAKE DE! INDIA. Directed by Shimit Amin, a less than prolific director of tremendous talent, this underdog Shahrukh Khan starrer surprised everyone by not only succeeding at the box office but also becoming a perennial fan favorite.
In fact, it was the only choice for our guest, Sucharita Tyagi, whom you may know from Film Companion’s Not a Movie Review series or her own eponymous channel.
Join us as we dive into this charming little film and examine why it remains beloved all these years later.
