A team of rag-tag girls led by a failed and ostracized former men’s field hockey captain attempts to claim the National field hockey championship for India. Both the players and the coach are in need of redemption, as they strive to play together as one, unified by their goals and the thrill of the sport.

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?

A feminist sports tale, this movie made me realize two things - hockey can be interesting, and Shah Rukh Khan is more than just the King of Romance. Watching the girls go from individual players to a strong team remains an unforgettable journey, not to mention the fact that the "Sattar Minute" (Seventy Minutes) speech still retains the ability to inspire chills. Young me was a huge fan of this movie!

L.A. Weekly by David Chute

It weaves its familiar story with some fresh textures and even manages to invest the conflict on the field with a resonance that transcends the tick-tock turnover of the numerals on the scoreboard.

Variety by Derek Elley

Shaky handheld lensing, terrific cutting and uplifting music build to a grandstand finish in which the main characters are bound tightly into the physical drama. It ain't subtle, but it packs a punch at a simple emotional level.
