    I really enjoyed this film. I'll admit I missed seeing Shahrukh break into song and start dancing, but his performance was so powerful and honest I didn't miss it for too long.

    I am impressed with all the messages in this film. I really appreciate Shahrukh playing a part in a film that addressed the divisions that exist in India, such as, class, gender, and even religion. This was really storytelling at its best. To combine so many issues in such subtle and sometimes direct ways.

    I almost cried at the end when Kabir Khan brings his mother back home to their house and the little boy is scratching over the word 'traitor' that had been written on the wall in front 7 years prior. What vindication! I also wanted to cry when the boys national hockey team started clapping for the girls national team because they played against them so well. They even held up their hockey sticks as a sign of respect. That was really touching.

    I really appreciated the fact that Shahrukh played a Muslim. I cannot remember the last time he played a Muslim. Oh wait, he did play one in Hey Ram. It is so important for people (especially these days) to see positive portrayal of a Muslim man. Especially one who overcomes obstacles in a peaceful way. No matter, whether it be Muslim, Hindu, Christian, or atheist Shahrukh can play just about any role convincingly.

    The movie kinda inspired me to want to go join some organized sport for exercise and for the joy of being part of a team. I really hope this movie inspires people in India (and elsewhere) to start appreciating the girl child because they have just as much potential as the boy child does.
