Bollywood evening at the Indian embassy

The Indian embassy in Vienna has been screening Hindi/Bollywood films with German subtitles once a month since February 2012 at the Embassy Business Centre (Kärtner Ring 2).

The Embassy Business Centre seats up to 50 people. The film screening is free to attend and small refreshments are served at the venue. However, there is a limited capacity and places are given on a first come, first served basis. Prior registration is required via the embassy website

The next film showing is Ein unschlagbares Team (Chak De! India) and takes place on January 18th 2013 at 18.00. The story is about a hockey player who returns to the game as coach of a struggling women's hockey team. He manages motivates the team - albeit in an unusual manner - and finally brings them to the the Women’s Hockey World Cup in Australia.

Short Summary:

Kabir Khan lives a middle-class lifestyle along with his widowed Mum in Delhi, India, and is the Captain of the Indian men's hockey team. He fails to score at the last tournament resulting in Pakistan winning the World Cup amidst allegations that he was more inclined toward his opponents due to his religion.

Kabir and his Mum move away and virtually disappear for seven years. Kabir later resurfaces as Coach for the women's hockey team, consisting of 16 players from all over India.

Kabir's disciplinarian style ends up offending the players, lead by the militant Bindia Naik, who decide not to participate unless he resigns amidst allegations that he is having an affair with soon to-be married Vidya Sharma, who he appoints as the new Captain.

Things change after a brawl at the local McDonald's, the girls accept Kabir as Coach, however, the Chair of the Indian Women Hockey Association, Tripathi, decides to pull out of the World Cup but decides to give them a shot after all after Kabir challenges the men's team.

The women lose by a goal but their performance compels the Association to revise their decision and dispatch them to Melbourne, Australia. In the very first match against six-time winning team of Australia, the Indian team lose 7-0 to, but manage to struggle back to the semi-finals after beating Great Britain,Germany, Argentina, and Korea.

On the eve of the final match Kabir will meet secretly with two rival players, Komal Chautala and Preety Sabharwal (who is engaged to be married to Cricket Team Captain, Abhimanyu Singh). During this meeting he will tell them that two of his hockey players will be playing for the Australians. Watch what impact this has on both Preety and Komal.
