Finally, Yash Raj Films comes out with the teaser of the eagerly anticipated Chak De India. The promo has Shah Rukh Khan whose role is inspired by former National Women's Hockey Coach Mir Ranjan Negi and the eleven girls of the Hockey team whom he is going to coach.
Hockey being the theme of the film, the promo starts with the girl players getting set for a match. Backed with interesting foot-tapping and inspiring music by Salim-Suleiman, the girls are shown to be getting ready to go for the kill with their hockey sticks.
Shah Rukh Khan also has a few introductory lines to say which unfortunately are a let down. The lines are supposed to be motivating but end up sounding like a desperate attempt in singing rhyming rap in lieu of a typical stimulating talk.
There is no characteristic Yash Raj Films grandeur seen in the promo obviously because it is a film of a different league which has more to it than magnificence of locales. The music seems to be a likely chart topper thanks to stirring yet entertaining music.
All in all, the promo manages to be triumphant in adding more eagerness for Chak De India with Shah Rukh, the Yash Raj banner, eleven women hockey players and truly potential music!
