720p Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal Movies Dubbed In Hindi
COME CRICKET and hockey are some of the only sports in the subcontinent that remain popular, though football, which once was the predominant sport in India, has faded and lost its lustre thanks to the popularity of hockey. That it is so popular in India is a fact, perhaps more so than any other sporting event on the continent. The popularity of the game can be gauged by the number of clubs that exist and the number of people who play it. The number of people playing the game in India is estimated at around eight million, the largest number in the world. And with that said, its only a matter of time that Indian films would try to get a piece of the pie. And though the latest sporting events to be highlighted in Bollywood are cricket and hockey, one film will emerge as a significant sports drama with all the ingredients for a good film. The Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal isnt about sports so much as it is about the unending love for football in India.
The football scenes in Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal are as empty as the phatbhai canteen in Lagaan, the philistinish fish-and-chips shop in Chak De India, or the motley crew of losers in this one. There are some good jokes in the film (I really dug Arshad Warsi playing the depressed, lethargic coach who only becomes jovial when cheering on his colleagues in the game), and there is some lively singing and dancing in this one (again with Arshad Warsi excelling in the drecky hero role of the disco-loving, speed-loving coach) but nothing dramatic or moving, nothing that made you get up and cheer for the underdogs, nothing that made you want to donate Rs. 5,000 as a token of your support for this team who hardly deserve it.
The film is being promoted with a tagline of It s so real you cant look away and the makers of the film hope that this makes the public realise that it s about real people: not actors on set. But even so, the film does seem to have the makings of a good road movie. Sporting a tight, vibrant plot, the film is also chock full of some good performances, particularly from its actors. The Badshah is undoubtedly in his element, delivering another all-action performance in this sports drama, even as his character here seems to be struggling against self-doubt. If the first two instalments were all set in northern India, here, even as the film starts in the south, it so happens that the group on whom the characters in the film are depending for coaching, happens to be based in southern Indian states such as Tamil Nadu. That s good, too, since the reality matches the eponymous football (or dhan dhan) being played by the participants.
NOV 25, 2007 THE OBSTREPEROUSLY-TITLED DHAN DHANA DHAN GOAL gets going with an account of the woes of Southall United, a mix of players of South Asian descent belonging to a football club that hasnt won a match in 25 years. (That theyre hardly in the best of shape is reinforced with a tired visual metaphor: an alphabet is almost falling off the team-name thats inscribed on the arch that leads to their playing grounds which is about as clever as the film gets.) And if that isnt bad news enough, their lease is up, and a Heartless and Soulless White Woman wants to take over these grounds and build a shopping mall, at which point, Shaan (Arshad Warsi) bursts out, Yeh zameen hamari thi, hamari hai, hamari rahegi.
