Kabir Khan (Shah Rukh Khan) knows what it's like to come back from the dead. The ex Indian captain has now come back in the avatar of the coach of the Indian Women's National Hockey team. A team that exists more on paper and less in reality.
The team is a rag-tag bunch of girls with their own agenda. A bunch of girls who have forgotten what it is like to play for the love of the game of playing because you want glory for your country. Not because you want a pensioned job or a government flat. They have all forgotten the sharp thrill of just holding the hockey stick, keeping their eyes on the ball and playing for all they are worth. They have played every game but hockey to make sure they get selected every year in the India National team. But what does it really mean to play for the Indian National team? To play for India?
"Mujhe siff ek mulk ka naam sunaai deta hai-India"
The girls have never known the thrilling energy of being Team India. Of giving their all to see their counry's name on a trophy.

Because Kabir Khan believes that it is not that we can't win. It;s just that we have never believed we can.
